IT’s MONDAY Y’ALL!
By Carrie Edwards
On Honesty and Authentic Transparency, which takes a Ton of Strength, Courage and Character.
One of my Mentors, Once Shared with me that before You can Ask Others to do Something, you have to Hold the Mirror and be Willing to do it Yourself.
This is Now a Philosophy I Try to Live Out Loud Faithfully in my Relationship with Christ, and with others, both Personally and Professionally.
It is Not Simple.
Oh, on the Contrary Sometimes I want to Dig in my Heels, Not Self-Reflect but Just Want it Done. This Way, Not that Way.
To Do it MY Way,
but I have Learned
the Hard Way, at Times,
that it will Not work
and I will Fail withOUT Him,
Over and over again
So I Hold the Mirror
I Want to Continue to Seek Him and I Want to
Ask You to Do the Same.
I Want to Dig In My Heels (FOR HIM) and I
Want You to do the Same.
I Want to Love Like Him and Our World
Needs You to do the Same!
Keep Seeking Him
Turning it over to Him
as Many Times as Needed.
Do Not Stop Holding the Mirror Up
Drawing Closer to Him!
“My children, our love should not be only words and talk. No, our love must be real. We must show our love by the things we do.” 1 John 3:18
Your sister in Christ,
AND Keep Looking
Words fill her head every moment of the day.
Built Southern Strong, Carrie appreciates porch breezes, fire pits, dirt roads, and yes, sweet tea.
She defines herself first, as a Child of God, and Christ-follower. Second to Him, she is a wife to a man that the Good Lord put in her path 21 years ago, and that she knows, loves her more today, in all of her quirkiness, than he did when they first met.
Carrie and Josh, along with their three children, whom she will tell you act and look more like their dad, depending on the day, call rural Georgia, home, and attend First Baptist Church, Warrenton.
