Is He your everything?

I can't believe it's already September. This is crazy. I get my license in two weeks and my birthday's the week after that. I've been crazy from running downtown to hometown Marietta back & forth. BUT. It's all worth it. I have officially signed with Presence Models & Talent here in Atlanta. For those of you who wanted updates. There you go. I'm working the local market here in Atlanta before, Lord Willing, I go New York crashing. I guess how this post's verse comes in is because I recently got a job (on the runway!) that I really, really wanted. It would've been a huge advance in my career, but I just got cut. After getting over it, (this involved mommy comfort, Oreo's, and horseback riding) I now just feel like the Lord is preparing me for something. I don't know what that something is, but I can't wait to see what's going to happen. I know I'll face rejection; man, if there's ever business to face rejection, it's the modeling industry, but I feel like this is for something better than I can dream up for myself in my teeney little human brain. I'm not going to quote the all-known Jeremiah 29:11. I know the Bible can't be overrated, but that's everybody's favorite verse! I'm going to quote Psalms 30:11:
"You've changed my sorrow into dancing, You took away my clothes of sadness & clothed me in happiness. I will sing to You and not be silent. My Lord, my God. I will praise you forever."
He can bring me joy in sorrow because He's my joy in e v e r y t h i n g. Isn't that the way it should be? Isn't that why we sing: "With everything, with everything we will SHOUT for your glory"? Followed by: "For You, our King, with EVERYTHING we will shout for Your praise"?

Anyway. My point is: It's not about me. It's about how God uses me. And if that's working at Chick-fil-A for the rest of my life. #sobeit. Even though the thought makes me sad. (I've had one too many #1's) #notexaxctlymyplan.
If Jesus Christ is your everything, you it won't matter what life throws in your face. Because nothing else will matter to you. Is He your everything?

I only update every once in a while, but I thought September first would be a nice day to write a new post. If you want to connect I would love to hear from you! Twitter: CheriseShaddix.
