We are offically going to the Phillippines in less than a month! Which I'm like, super excited about. First time out of the country AND my first mission trip!
My current area of growth I'm working on? How shallow I can be. I can be an incredibly superficial and vain person when I like what I see in the mirror. It's as if my day/attitude/life is all about "look at how great I look" instead of being the light for "look how great God is."
I think of my qualities and I list how I look without even thinking.
I mean, there's nothing wrong with liking how you look, but I don't want my beauty to only be skin deep... So I'm trying to change that. I'm gonna work on my heart... And see what that does.
Also... Until I get back from the Phillippines on March 4th, I'm not wearing make up again.
I wanna really be able to do something for God. That means the focus can't be on me. That means I have to lay my heart out for God to change. Only He can make me a truly beautiful person because of how I talk and how I treat those around me.
Also. I realize how vain this post sounds, but I had to post it to help me stick to my word.
