Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to speak at a high school girl’s retreat in the Kansas City area.
The theme of the retreat was heart change. I was asked to do a makeup tutorial and speak about vanity. It was actually more difficult than I anticipated, just because coordinating BOTH into one lesson could easily be contradictory.
I am thankful that the Lord equips the inadequate. Like me.
I first spoke to the girls about how vanity is really just selfishness. When we start focusing on ourselves, we become less aware of God and His presence in our lives.
I shared about my story of redemption. How I couldn’t hear God speak for what seemed like forever. How He showed up anyway, and I became painfully aware of the frequency in which HE WAS THERE ALL ALONG, I was just blinded. Completely oblivious to Him there beside me through it all.
I am starting to see Him everywhere. In Justin Beiber songs. In Springtime. In my husband. In makeup.
