It was brought to my attention that I may be wound a little too tight. 🙂 Do you have this problem? I really don’t think that I am. I am ambitious, confident, straight-forward, and organized. If that looks like being overly busy then maybe it is. I was told that I needed to calm down and ‘just BE’.
At first, I didn’t know that having energy or expressing myself the way I do was considered over the top. Is it? Do I need to BE in order to ‘let go’? Maybe I am not understanding the way it was meant. Maybe I am taking this too personally and need to get out of my own way. Whatever the motive, it did get me thinking about how I BE.
As a Business Woman I want to BE energetic and knowledgeable. As a Women of Faith I want to BE strong and truthful. So I had to look at this ‘just BE’ from my own perspective. I am not one to just sit and empty my mind; that kind of BE is not what I would do. BUT, the BE I began to see was attached to the way I want to BE.
BE long- I belong to God, I am a daughter of the KING.
BE loved- I am unconditionally loved by God.
BE stowed- God has given me grace and forgiveness that I did not deserve.
BE lieve- I believe I am in God’s will and am living/working in my purpose.
BE have- I behave in a manner worthy of God with integrity and passion.
BE fore- I come before God each day so I can be filled by Him.
BE hold- I see and give God all the glory in my life and in my work.
BE come- I am becoming more like God each day by demonstrating love, faith, joy, kindness, goodness and more.
All these BE’s give me direction. These BE’s make for a life worth living. These BE’s are where I need to start so that all the parts of my life work well.
As a Business Woman I can BE reliable, honest and hard-working. As a Woman of Faith I can BE trusted, caring and happy. Do you see it? Do you see how the two parts work together to become ALL that you are meant to BE too?
I can go back to the kind soul who prodded me to ‘just BE’ and tell her I BE so much more BEcause of God.
