Image vs Picture
Many have an image of me but very few get the picture. I’m ok with that.
In life we so want to be liked and maybe even popular but it’s not important how many people get the full picture. God knows the picture and so do you (most of it), others might get it and others might not and that’s ok.
I have been one of those people who have a need to be liked by everyone and I have also been one of those people who refuse to look past the “image” of someone to see the full picture. It’s not fun being either of these people.
I have found peace just being myself and not worrying about who likes me and who doesn’t. I have found peace resting in the knowledge that God loves me and wants only the best for me. I have found peace in trying to see past the image I see in front of me when looking at others, but trying to rather see a picture beyond what’s in front of me. This is all still a work in progress but in the times I’ve got it right, it guards my heart and brings me to a place of rest in my spirit.
Just be you, and leave that between you and God.
