Life Around My Wrist


I wrap this piece of leather round and around my wrist…
Over and over, binding the truth to my arm.
It remains to be seen
Some of these words
But I keep them in front of me
Ever and often.

Accepted,
Life giver,
esperanza
WORLD CHANGER,
Entrusted
awakened to strength,
DEVOTED,
One Sisterhood,
HoPe
spEak KiNdNess
FREEdom
Amada
LIGHT up DARK places

Dare I believe this? Dare I trust my Life Giver to call me and my words and actions life giving? Dare I believe that I am His, accepted as a gift to Him, and from Him? Dare I believe that my actions can change the world? Dare I believe this enough to do the things He’s entrusted me with? Shall I allow myself to be awakened by His strength rather than failing in my own? Dare I devote myself recklessly and entirely to Him? Dare I hope? Will I remember to speak kindness? Will I allow the Light of the One who called Light into existence to light up the dark places in my world?

My toe timidly touches trebled waters of trust. You can watch me…watch me try…dare you join me?

If you are interested in one of these bracelets they can be found here.

Sharing this over at Emily’s beautiful world…

  1. I was thinking the same as “happy girl.” I really like it. I often write my quiet time thought on the palm of my hand, but this is so much “neater” and nicer. I always want to remind myself of God’s truths to me. Great post!

    • His beauty peeks through small cracks of the darkness that surrounds me…and as I peel back the layers of my dirt, may I shine brighter and brightly for Him. You shine brightly, sweetly, friend!

  2. it’s a little different but i have the hebrew word for beloved tattooed on my wrist to be a visible reminder to trust, to live as one who is loved. i fail often, but there is grace in that, too.
