Place: the car

Poison: sushi and coke zero

Favorite things: random conversations on Bluetooth

We met up with the most amazing women today who are so passionate about rescuing women from prostitution in Nepal.

They are amazing women in their late fifties and I sat there listening to their amazing exploits I started to question what I could contribute to the conversation because of my age.

It’s easy when we are in situations where people are knowledgable about a topic, to shrink back and shy away.

The thing was, I truly did have a lot to contribute to the conversation but I continually double guessed my contribution due to my age.

Scripture says this…

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12 NIV)

I know I’m not 20 anymore, but in the shadow of people who are in their 50s and 60s I can still feel inferior.

What makes you shrink back?

What makes you feel inferior?

We need to confront our fears and know that every one of us was created with value and worth. No matter if we sit in the company of Kings and queens or with paupers in the slums of the earth, our value doesn’t change.

I want to set an example with whomever I sit with, wherever I sit, by knowing my worth and extending love.

You are valued and loved.

No matter what you think or feel.
