Not a Quitter

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV

For way too long I was quite comfortable being a quitter. 

I quit brownies

the troop kind

not the tasty kind

because 

I was afraid 

of not fitting in.

I was in second grade.

I quit band

because

I measured my worth

by the accolades

of first flute

before 

I was moved to third.

I was in 7th grade.

I quit sharing

my real

because 

faking fine 

and 

fabulous 

darling

seemed much more acceptable.

I was in my 20’s.

I quit trying

to chase perfection 

and 

soul surrendered to His grace.

Not soon enough.

Then when 

I quit defining

LOVE

by unrealistic exceptions

especially mine

and simply embraced His

the craziest thing emerged.

Me.

All kinds of quirky

and 

so not a quitter anymore. 

Live free, beloved. XOXO

Spread your joy,

tina
