Although Mary Jo and I have never met, she has been endlessly encouraging in my writing, my relationship with the Lord, and valuing my heart. I am so blessed to have her pour into my life and my blog. Needless to say, I was humbled, surprised, and welly-eyed when Mary Jo asked me to guest post on her blog this week. I couldn’t believe a real blogger had asked me to write something for her! Once I joyfully accepted the invitation, I had no idea what to write about.
And then it hit me.
I need to take a risk in a big way, bigger than before. I need to write about a topic I’ve been hiding from.
Here’s a sneak peak:
‘I stand naked on the auction block waiting for a new master to purchase me.
I’ve been separated from all that I know; my parents, the house I grew
up in, my friends.
The potential buyers come up and examine me.
They open my mouth to see the condition of my teeth, they feel my
limbs to evaluate the worth of my muscles, and they make me walk the
length of the block to see the stability of my stride.
I try to hide my blushing face while my worth is determined by my
body, by what I can offer the buyer….’
Come join us at Mary Jo’s blog to read my struggle with worth, value, and redemption.
