A few months ago, I saw this big guy priced oddly low on an online marketplace. Of course, I quickly claimed it and insisted that I pay more than the pricing since it was priced quite lower than its actual worth. The seller replied “nah, it was my grandmas and I don’t really want it.”

This struck a cord. There was nothing wrong with the piece, it’s quite beautiful actually. Just needed a quick dusting and the right placement.

The issue wasn’t this piece. The issue was that the person it once belonged to didn’t know it’s worth, value, or potential.

Same can go for us. When we find our “belonging” to something/someone who doesn’t know our value, we won’t be known or valued to our full worth or treated as such.

Are you surrounded by those who can remind you of your worth, honor and love you to your value and help you reach potential?

This is why I surrender myself to the one who bought me at a higher price than I think I deserve, the one who gave his life so I could live to my fullest potential in mine and I’ll live the rest of it living to be placed exactly where he would place me so I can tell the story of what he did for me.

Thankful our God can use things we love and cherish like furnishing and home decor to tell a story and teach me a lesson. He meets us where we’re at, right?

Surrender + surround.

I am an online encourager based out of Birmingham, AL that's obsessed with my girls and sharing bits and pieces of my life. I wear a lot of hats these days including mama to two boys, military wife, blogger, podcast host and more. You can find me behind the microphone at Real Talk with Rach where we talk about everything from jeans to Jesus, playlists to pop culture, the good and the grief and everything in between.
