FOCUS: Your Extraordinary Spirit
“We are often more motivated to exercise courage and demonstrate integrity when people are watching us, especially if they seem impressed with us. Even if were criticized, we might reason that at least we’re in the spotlight. For some, the list of the platform can make criticism quite bearable. Daniel maintained his integrity long after anyone seemed to notice. He remained extraordinary in his ordinary estate. You and I want God to be able to look on us amid our overindulged, self-absorbed culture, then glance to His right and say, *SHE HAS AN EXTRAORDINARY SPIRIT, DOESN’T SHE SON?* Perhaps Christ will nod His head and, while thinking the thoughts of an anxious bridegroom, lean over and say *AND ISN’T SHE BEAUTIFUL* ” (from Daniel: Lives of Integrity Words of Prophesy by Beth Moore)
With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2 MSG)
I stumbled on this campaign from Dove, who continues to impress the understanding that we are all so wonderfully made!

“Over 5 million negative tweets about beauty and body image were posted in 2014. Be part of the positive change and help women #speakbeautiful ”
