i have wanted to be more
in the eyes of the world
it is a reason
i have had in my heart
and my heart said
will you be given
until you change

Artful Words to Inspire Everyday Living

I took this a different way when I first read it … one of your special gifts to challenge our perspectives.
You've been deep in reflection lately, haven't you. Those times can be such a gift. I have to really put 'myself' aside, open my heart up, and listen to the still small voice. I never regret it that's for sure, though it's tough to do.By the way, I 'third' the beautiful, brilliant, and supreme comments.
Ah – this speaks to me Nance.I just love the picture.
If you think of "the world" as God's own eyes, it makes sense to want to "be more in" it.
A change in motivation is something we could use quite often, it seems. Nice post.
Wow — what a wise heart you have.I like what STC said — you are beautiful, brilliant, supreme — maybe what your heart is saying is — don't be these things for the world, — Be them for who you are. Lovely post!HugsLouise
Wow, your heart is giving some tough love, eh? Sometimes I wonder if the "being more" is a basic human motivation that is not supposed to be so bad, but gets out of whack all the time. My wife, a psychologist, always reminds me that if you have feelings of wanting to be something or be viewed as something special, then that means you are probably special in that way at it is something trying to come out of you. Then if you fulfill that thing, usually those feelings will go away. Maybe the wanting is just a message inside that says you are beautiful, you are brilliant, you are supreme, because God made you so. But the pure heart is a good measure of truth, so I would follow it's orders.
