We all need people in our lives who will speak positive truth to us.
I am not talking about positive criticism, critique, or judgement. I am talking about positive truths affirming the person God has created you to be. We need people in our lives that will say “Yes, He has gifted you in this and I see Him working…”
Instead, many times we receive truths from people that are iron sharpening iron-which is needed, but with balance.
I am in a season of life where there are some people affirming some gifts God has given me and things He has created me uniquely to do. It has given me confidence to say “Yes, I am gifted in that capacity, how can I help you?” instead of crawling in my shell, wondering if anyone has noticed or needs help. It has occurred to me during the last few months how rare it is to have someone walking beside you that will speak truth to you according the glorious riches He has made in and through you.
It has been an incredible gift to realize and believe that yes, we are all created uniquely for His glory. Thank you to each of you who have spoken to that over these months. You are a treasure.
