Nancy – Your Unique Blueprint


Nancy shared these words from Bill Hybels –
A fitting reflection for the week!

God made you exactly as you are.
He wired you and gave you the temperament
And the experience and the background that you have
Because He wanted someone just like you
In this world right now.
In this generation.
Memorize all twenty-four verses of
Psalm 139 if you have to,
But don’t lose sight of the intentionality
God poured into His blueprint for you.

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
