"Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly." -St. Francis de Sales
Recently the Holy Spirit has been bringing this thought into my heart. In a world where we are so bombarded with bad news, propaganda, politics, and who knows what else, it is so easy to feel hopeless and get caught up in the worries of the direction society is heading. When we sit in those worries however...we end up straying away from what God has called us first and foremost. God creates us in His image, but we are also called to BECOME his image.
How do we do that?
A good place to start is by becoming the person God created you to be. Maybe you are a wife right now, focus on becoming the best wife you can be and serve your husband and family. Maybe you are a student right now, focus on becoming the best student you can be. Maybe you are a big sister, focus on becoming the best big sister you can be.
Wherever you are in your life right now, you have a mission set in front of you. God always calls us back to the present moment because this is where our work is to be done.
St. Mother Teresa reminds us, "If you want to go change the world...go and love your family."
Ladies...today...let's go into our world and take one step closer to becoming the saint we were called to be!
