Tammy Tangent Tuesdays
Hello Beautiful! I pray you’re having a blessed week so far! It’s that time again, it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays! This week’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays is dedicated and devoted just to you, Beloved!!! It’s time to embrace and cherish that Beautiful You! It’s time to be still. Ooooh, and I know how hard that is, but it’s oh-so-rewarding!
In order to be filled, we need to be still!
Why is it we always seem to work so hard taking care of everyone else, but we have a tendency to forget about ourselves? Especially lately, with all the increased demands that graduation and summertime planning brings about, we forget who is most important here and the last to receive: Beautiful You! It’s time to take care of YOU and only YOU this week! Will you value yourself enough to be still and know who God says He is (Psalm 46:10) while allowing Him to take inventory within?
It’s time to make peace with yourself and quit putting yourself in places where God never intended you to be! He knows how hard we strive to impress Him and others through our service and performance, but He wants nothing more than to lavishly pour out His love onto us. This requires being still and quiet at the feet of Jesus without an agenda except to be refreshed and loved on! Being loved on is an understatement that occurs while being still; this quiet time satisfies our souls unlike anything we’ve ever experienced and heals all those deep recesses! Now, that’s what I call being romanced! God doesn’t just want His Beloveds to exist and just survive, He wants our hearts healed and our lives filled with joy!
This weekly challenge is to start off each day in prayer and meditation, giving praises to God Almighty, while allowing yourself time to be refreshed doing whatever it is that makes you happy; whether that’s taking a bubble bath, a bike ride or hike, time spent with friends just being silly and girly like us girls LOVE TO DO while having a great time celebrating each others’ lives (I know I am having a blast celebrating life lately), or it’s time spent in all-deserving solitude; just DO IT!!! You deserve it and owe it to yourself the time to ponder and reflect upon your worth and value! Embrace this time to realize how special and important your life is! Be refreshed! Never forget how cherished and loved you are! We have to take care of ourselves to make sure we’re being filled up spiritually, emotionally, and physically first before we can love on and take care of others. There’s no way to pour into others with love without first being renewed, revitalized and refreshed! Celebrate your life while you’re alive!!!
