Imagine someone sitting in a staff meeting who missed the last three minutes of discussion because they fell asleep with their eyes open. And it's not that the meeting is boring, it's because they only got four hours of sleep the night before. Can you relate? I certainly can. Many a time I have been at work and barely able to keep my eyes open. This is why caffeine was invented if you ask me. But why am I so tired? Well, perhaps a look at the evening before could be most telling.
"Do Not Disturb" signs are awesome when you are staying in a hotel. They are not awesome when they are hanging around your neck! Nothing I am about to write is original content. In fact, it is straight out of Joyce Meyer's mouth. She gave a message called Do Not Disturb Me Part 1: Living In God's Timing. I can't even remember what the whole message was about (hence I have included the link for my own refresher). But, I do remember her wearing a "Do Not Disturb" sign around her neck. It was a very striking image - one that will stick with me for a lifetime.
God has given me a gift in Discovering Me. He is providing me a rare opportunity to tell my story so it can be used for His glory. But if I continue to bury the story in the ground out of fear, I risk losing it. I risk losing a chance to help other women understand how valuable they are just the way they are.
