Let my life reflect the beauty of Your love. Let Your grace be poured out through me. Anoint my words to comfort those who are hurting, encourage those who feel hopeless, and direct those who have lost their way.

"The thing that is really hard and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself."
When I found this quote I was in the middle of a raging, internal battle. After years of people-pleasing and doing what I thought I was supposed to do, I suddenly found myself tired, confused, unfulfilled, without direction, and distant from God. Upon the realization that I had lived a large part of my life trying to be who I thought people wanted me to be and trying to be perfect, I was forced to see me behind the masks.
