Going Deep

Ok, so i realized that I haven't really gone to deep in blog post lately, They're either totally random or about cookies.

So lately I've been thinking about this little necklace.

Photobucket
I've had this necklace for almost 2 years, I believe, and over those 2 years its lost a couple of it "diamonds" that make the heart.
As I looked at it the other day, God put a little though in my head.
"Not every heart it perfect"
That's a thought! Over the past year, God has really tested me in accepting and realizing that everybody's different. I didn't have a huge issue with it but I would get upset when certain people would act a certain way, or say something that didn't needed to be said, or just didn't accept certain things that i believed or said. He also constantly reminded me that "no one is perfect"
As I looked at the necklace, I remembered that we all still have a few "diamonds" that are missing that doesn't make us perfect. Truthfully ( in the words of my pastor) we will NEVER be perfect on this earth. Our hearts will never be perfectly surrounded by "diamonds" till we reach our "home above".
If you see me walking around, I am more or less wearing this necklace. Its a constant reminder and, hey , its still cute even though its missing some diamonds ;)
Oh and remember, God is they only perfect person we will know. SO lets hang out more often with the only perfect Friend ;)

Hebrews 12:2
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
