I’m reading a book right now that I can’t put down… It’s called, “She’s still there: rescuing the Girl in you”, by Chrystal Hurst. I’ve been chasing after the concept of being rescued for the last few months, so I was intrigued by the book’s tagline.
One would hope that by the age of 40 she would know who she is, but that’s not always the case. It amazes me how I’ve continued to fumble through this life of mine chasing after the discovery of my truest self.
Who am I?
Honestly I’ve done a terrible job at being good to the girl inside of this 40 year old soul who longs to change the world for the better, and I don’t think I’m alone with this either.
One minute I’m ready to ignite 1 million lives for Jesus, the next I’m battling reckless thoughts.
How does this happen?
I’ll tell you how. I’m human, and so are you.
I may never fully understand who God created me to be and the potential that I was created with, but I do see growth in my life over the years… and I think growth is a good thing. Who knows, maybe one day, I’ll see how far I’ve really come.
There’s a beautiful voice inside of you somewhere who knows exactly who you are and what you’ve been put here to do. I believe the better you get at listening, the closer you are to your greatest dreams. You may even be much closer than you know. Don’t give up now.
I’ll leave you with a few quotes I’ve underlined in the book:
“Where you are today is not where you have to be forever”
“Don’t give up, girl. You are worth the work of the rescue”
“Your darkest moments are only a moments in time”
“Wisdom for living the rest of your life begins with being honest about the life you have lived so far”
