Five Minute Friday-View

Are you always worried about how the world views you? Do you ever actually let people see the real you? Or do you only let them view you, through the small lens that you occasionally let them peek in at. Is perfection what you are seeking, or what you think they are seeking from you? Guess what my friend? It does not matter what the world thinks of you,or what they are seeking from you. All that ultimately matters, is what God thinks of you. And the great thing is, God is not seeking anything from you, as a matter of fact, God only wants to seek after your heart. He searches you out, so He can love you, care for you, and be your all in all. When He looks at you, He sees the beautiful piece of clay, that He gently molded and created, into a true work of art. From where He stands, the view of you, is a magnificent one, every time my friend.

Good post. I read another blog the other day talking about this whole thing about not being "good enough". The writer said that there is no such thing. There is no list of what goes onto what IS good enough and what is not.

Dear sweet Denise
Yes, my friend, although it is not easy to be formed on the potter's wheel, I am so grateful that the Master Potter is forming me into a vessel of honor! Denise, how can I subscribe to your blog? I don't seem to find a subsribe function.
Much love
Mia

Love, I too get wrapped up in what others think of me, and forget what my Father thinks of me

I have been surprised at how much more transparent I am on my blog than I am in my personal life - it's possible that my "blog friends" might even know me better. Their "view" is a little more honest.

Thank you for sharing today. I appreciate your perspective on "view." I needed to read your words. I forget to look at God's perspective. We are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Thank you for visiting my FMF post.

View...yes...worry doesn't change a thing~ You are going through a deep valley, but you are not alone! I pray the doctors will find out what the issue is...and we also pray for healing. God's blessings always. Enjoy your sweet Coco for now, and be patient~

I have to be honest - I used to worry about that - not so much any more - as long as God loves me and I like myself I feel I am doing okay.
