Do you know what Captain Ahab and The Nana used to call me, growing up? “Sara Bernhardt“.
Do you know who that was? Feel free to click on her name later, but for now, just know that she was a famous actress from the late 1800’s who had a flair for The Drama.
Now, can you guess why they thought that would be an appropriate nickname for me?
I can be dramatic.
And it can draw attention.
And, with the help of an amazing Christian therapist in years past, I’ve explored countless reasons why I crave different kinds of attention. Make no mistake, I’m not suggesting that I don’t still crave it sometimes.
He has been drawing my attention lately. And what He’s making very clear is something that was summed up nicely in my devotional time this morning. “Those who want to shine will know the Source of light and will be completely preoccupied with Him.”
A to the men.
You know what else I’ve been learning as I go through this study of Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst? I’m seeing that this attention thing? That is my raging battle.
Not food. (Although, my muffintop might beg to differ.)
Not glossy catalogs showing me all that I could have.
He wants all of my attention.
And if I’m busy enough giving it to Him and paying it to Him, I’m pretty certain that I won’t have time to be seeking it for myself.
