Had I lost my FAITH? I did not feel as if I had lost faith in God. Hebrews 11:1 says, Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. The very definition of faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing. There it was the very thing I had lost, confidence, not in anyone else but confidence in myself.
Now I have never been a very confident person. I had been raised with the J.O.Y. mentality...Jesus first, Yourself last and Others inbetween. I recall fighting against this with the introduction of what was for me a new school of thought from a counselor. She said, "If you are on a plane, what are the instructions for placing on the oxygen masks? To place your's on first, then help those around you." She pointed out if you do not take care of yourself first, how can you help others? You will not have the ability.
Take care of YOU, never loose faith in YOU! The more you love others the more they need YOU to love YOU!
*I should mention at this time, I did use the cake decorating items I use regularly for my actual edible cakes. The plaster icing washed clean as a whistle so no worries. If you are concerned, you can purchase seperate items. *
I hope you enjoy today! Blessings to you all!
