Since cancelling cable I've become rather fond of Netflix. I'm watching a series called Tidying Up and have learned a fascinating approach to ridding my tiny condo of accumulated personal possessions: only hold onto items that "spark joy" in me. Going along with my 2019 word of the year, joyful, this resonates with me.
I started with my clothes. Half way through making the pile of unwanted and discarded items, it occurred to me that I am grateful I don't serve a God that rids himself of me if I'm no longer sparking joy in Him! I am not only wanted by Him, with all of my rips, stains and moth holes, but He loves me deeply and promises to never leave me. He finds beauty in me no matter how I look or perform.
What a relief! My worth has nothing to do with my ability to spark joy in the eyes of God. He made me perfect just by going to the cross at Calvary.
Join us this week as we learn about true beauty and the way God always sees us. Tomorrow at 8am, Wednesday at noon and Thursday at 7pm. Jade Martial Arts, Boulder.
