John 4:4-26 Am I the adulterous whore or am I the passionate evangelist? If the truth be told, I am both. Fortunately, God sees within us, often past what we even see of ourselves or who we might be at this particular moment in time. If I were to stay locked up in what I see I won't be able to even conceive of doing the things that God would have me to do. All my dreams would be beyond my reach. But I choose to listen today and see who God says I am. In consuming the Living Water I become filled and desire to tell others about this drink that quenched my thirst, my emptiness.
But if I would have stayed in my own opinion of myself - or even someone else's opinion of myself, I might still just be that adulterous whore. BUT GOD! Now I can see myself through God's eyes. Its still cloudy and I still sometimes see the old me and get scared that 'she' couldn't possibly achieve anything. But when I pray...God infuses me with the strength to be me, covered in Him! That's the best me I have. The best me I am.
Let's take another look at ourselves. Stand in front of God and let Him reflect to you who you really are. A royal priesthood. A holy people. Not a slave to our flesh but instead, lord over it. Then make choices based on who God says you are!

Shrimp and Grits (one serving)
5 medium shrimp, deveined, defrosted, pat dry - dry season with garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, Lo Salt, pepper, chili powder
Grits - cook as desired, season with garlic, butter buds, pepper
In a preheated pan, with 1 quick short spray of Pam, put a nice crust on shrimp and turn once. Don't cook shrimp long or they will be tough. Plate them on top of 1/2 cup of grits and enjoy.
Cook time - 5-10 mins, depending on which grits you use!
Prayer: God, allow me to see myself as you see me so that I don't short change you! Help me to be full of your glory and confidence as I attack my goals. Cover me with your protection and lead me and guide me in all truth. I love you Lord and I'm glad I never have to do this alone!
In Jesus' name - AMEN!!
