I wrote a guest post for Critty Joy's blog and it live today! Please check out my post on her blog and please spend time reading some of her posts. She is such a gracious girl, with a beautiful spirit, and a passionate heart for Jesus. I am so blessed to know her and I know you will be, too.
Here's a teaser --
Max Lucado wrote a children’s book entitled You are Special. The basic premise of the book is this: You are special because God made you and nothing that anybody says or doesn’t say can change that simple fact.
I think this adult needs this lesson just as much as kids.
If you don’t know the story, Punchinello spends the first part of the book despondent because the other Wemmicks (the wooden people all made by Eli) continually place gray dot stickers on him because his faults, his failures, his never-measure-ups. He longs to have someone, anyone, give him a golden star instead. The people who receive stars are those who are the models of perfection. They are the ones who achieve, who are beautiful, who are successful in all they do. He tarries on this way until he meets Lucia. Lucia does not have any stickers, not because people don’t give them to her, but because they don’t stick. In short, she does not internalize worldly acclamation or condemnation. She simply relies on her Father to supply for her a sense of worth.
I am not like Lucia.
