A Beauty in Truth

There is such a beauty in truth, isn’t there?

Feeling the need to find my people, be purposeful, create beauty… it’s all percolating in my heart.  And I long to do these things without being rejected.  Without having my purpose be cast aside as unimportant.  I deeply desire to see others appreciate the words I create.  I do, indeed, long for these things.

And yet, I am afraid.  I’m afraid to fail, to not matter, to produce words that do not reach into hearts.

But, I go ahead and do these things afraid.

I do them because if I don’t, what is true of me will not be seen.

And what is true of me?

I am a sinner, the worst among them.

I will fail, many times over.

What I create may well end up being of no consequence.

But what is also true of me?

My Audience of One tells me that what is true is that I am already accepted.  I am already created with a purpose.  I was, in fact, already a thing of beauty creatively made in the image of One I can only pray to be more like every day.

I’m reminded that all that matters is that I believe these things – that I believe Him!

And that is a beautiful truth.

And it sets me free.

I’m linking up with the beautiful hearts over in the Five Minute Friday Community at Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog.  They had some words to share about TRUE. Maybe you’d like to share your thoughts, too?  Click the button below to hop on over there and check some of them out or add your own.  Or, even better? Do both!

  1. “it’s all percolating in my heart.” I love this phrase. God is pouring things into me right now and maybe I just need to let them percolate for a while.

    You, my sweet friend, are already a beautiful thing inside and out.

  2. But, I go ahead and do these things afraid.
    And I am SO glad you do!
    Because your words minister to this poor sinner’s heart!!!

  3. It’s a hard thing to NOT want the approval of others. I think we all struggle with that in some way. Thank you for sharing your truth and being willing to admit the places we don’t normally show.

  4. Hey there neighbor! Love your words “I was, in fact, already a thing of beauty creatively made in the image of One I can only pray to be more like every day.” Yes you are!!!
