"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.
Sometimes when we discover the truth about who we are it hurts. I was bummed when I realized my obsession with the frayed chair was just a projection of my obsession with being accepted. But God is showing me the beauty of having frayed edges.
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.
