Randomness...

Anyone who knows me well knows how incredibly random that I am :) I have a major case of "oh it's shiny", meaning I can be in the middle of a sentence or a thought and something else will catch my attention and I am off in a whole other conversation about that or an exclamation about what I just saw, leaving the one that I am with and talking too with this look on their face of pure confusion. This is usually my dear sweet hubby, who now after almost 15 years of marriage, just smiles and shakes his head and continues to love me in spite of myself! Most days I beat myself up over this quality as I really don't find it good for much. However today, God reminded me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made! In my devotions today, I was reading in Psalm 139:14 and it reminded me that God created me just the way I am for a purpose. God didn't just throw a recipe together and hope it came out alright... He put thought and purpose into me and that includes ALL of me, even my randomness! Also, during this devotion time, I realized that at times my randomness has a specific purpose. This past week, I have been under attack from so many angles that I lost count. And yesterday, I was beat down and my spirit was tired. However, because I really don't have the ability to dwell very long on anything specific because I am so random, I was able to use that to accomplish a large event for our church and I had a lot of fun doing it!
God is good and He thought so much of me to put specific thought and time into making me, including all my idiosyncrasies, like my randomness! Thank you Lord, for making me who I am, but please continue to work on me to make me more like YOU!

I loved this blog... if we can only be still and listen to what He is saying to us we usually find the direction we are looking for. My problem is I never shut up...

I love this post! I have really been thinking about the word "intentional"...and what it means to purposely live my life following Christ. Well, your post just brought to mind that God is also intentional!! He intentionally, with purpose, made each of us the way we are! We are His workmanship and He loves us...even our quirks!! I think randomness is awesome!

Thanks ladies!
Your comments only confirm what God is teaching me! Isn't God good and aren't we blessed to be the object of His creativity?!
