Your good side

What image are you portraying? What do others think of you? Are you living in the mission that God has called you to?

These are the types of questions I have been wrestling with lately. I've been thinking of the bigger purpose of my life, Gregory's life, Finn's life, and my heritage for that matter. Over the years (especially since having a child), I'm WAY more conscious of how I act and what I portray to others.

It's almost like you have to go backwards. You have to search your heart and pray that God will reveal what He wants for you. Once you find that out, you must live your life in a way that draws out that image. It's hard because flesh always wants to take you back. And this isn't a natural way to live.

All I know is that I want to go to Heaven and hear God say "Well done Rachael, my good and faithful servant."

Now, I must go and improve my image which I like to call my good side...

How about you? How's your good side? And what type of image are you portraying for others? Is it the real you? The you that God wants you to be?
