Tammy Tangent Tuesdays
The Beauty of the Lamb!
No Ugly Duckling Here
Hello Beautiful! I pray you’re having a blessed week walking joyfully on those golden stepping stones of realization that have been carefully laid out through every acknowledgement while building your gratitude wall this past week. It’s that time again; it’s Tammy Tangent Tuesdays! I pray your tender hearts are able to see the beauty and blessings that abound our lives from last week’s challenge even when life is hard and full of pain! In case you missed it, just click here: Gratitude Wall.
Since our Tammy Tangent Tuesdays’ challenges are geared toward us Beautiful Beloveds exclusively until the first of the year, acknowledging that we’re so dearly loved and quite beautiful requires first understanding the beauty that exists in the mind of the Be-Loved and Be-Held. Once we grasp that concept, this Great Love unleashes a breathtaking love affair that blooms radiance. The power of this amazing Love is not only unconditional, but it never ceases to satisfy, nurture and cultivate this assurance which opens our eyes to the true beauty looking back at us in the mirror!
That unbelievable feeling you get when you’re fully known, cherished, pursued, loved and accepted just the way you are! You’re giddy, you’re alive, you’re even powerful! Your magnetism draws in and intensifies more love, surrendering that confident step in your glide as you gracefully waltz through this side of heaven with your head held high because you know and believe in the One leading. No one can put a price tag on that fulfillment, nor can anyone take it away from you. It’s yours and it’s free!
Oh, how He loves us!!! When we start seeing ourselves as God sees us; pursued, lovely, pure, beautiful, precious, valued, cherished, and did I say loved (after all, when you’re loved, you’re oh-so-much more than penned words ♥♥), certain behaviors and attitudes develop that everyone is drawn to. When God’s love truly permeates deep into our hearts and souls, we make room for the natural beauty to bloom and shine.
Beautiful Beloved, the Lord God Almighty, the Creator of the universe, wants to live in us, yes us, because we’re precious, we’re beautiful, we’re extremely valuable and we have a purpose for His kingdom! We’re so valuable to Him, He constantly pursues us! If you ponder those amazing words over and over instead of believing the lies of the enemy that occupy so much space in your neighborhood (your mind) holding you captive, you will walk confidently with the reassurance and affirmation that we constantly seek from others, like men, our children, careers, accomplishments, image, you name it! We are beautiful just the way we are!
When we realize we have an enormous advocate, our Creator, who designed us not only in His image, but designed us specifically for a relationship with Him because we’re that special and beautiful; when you love someone, you will fight for them! Trust me, girlfriend, God always, whether we realize it or not, triumphs so let’s let Him in and Be-loved and Be-held! What do we have to lose anyways?
Let’s run to the Lord similar to what my granddaughter did when she heard me unlocking the door when I got home. She ran over to me with tears streaming down her cheeks, with outstretched arms, squealing to be picked up before I could even put my purse and groceries down. As the groceries crashed to the floor along with my purse and Bible, nothing in the world mattered but my Princess Ella. The only thing on my mind was that she needed me; to be held tight, loved on, consoled and sang to because she knows me and trusts me.
She may have needed that extra love, but the blessings and memories she poured into my heart that evening will forever be cherished and keep me smiling; similar to what makes God smile. God wants to know He is loved and needed, too. Let’s run to Him with outstretched arms and sing praises of His Greatness as He continues to walk alongside of us while holding our hands; that is what blesses Him! The beauty of the lamb!
Weekly challenge: Let’s bless God. We bless Him by having hearts filled with love, praise, and gratitude. Let’s lift up holy hands, blessing God by walking confidently in who He says we are and radiating that natural beauty. Yes, that’s what makes Him happy! Knowing and believing we are precious, we are beautiful, we are valuable, we have purpose, and that God loves us just the way we are will bless God. Stand tall, Beautiful; never forget, you’re an heir to the kingdom of God. Wow, what a privilege! Your crown is secure; wear it proudly!
Until next time, never forget…
Thank You For Being Beautiful You!
