Girlfriendit: Celebrating Our Differences with Krista McGee and Janet Drez

There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in. -Leonard Cohen

I (Lisa) love this quote as I can relate to feelings of "crackness"! Not sure that was a word but it works! Sometimes it dominates my thinking, feelings and response to situations.

How many times do we focus on the "cracked" parts of our lives? We major in our flaws and differences and won't allow ourselves to move past them. As a result, we try to hide our perceived faults and blemishes and allow them to scream "inadequate" into our hearts and minds.

Perhaps there is another way of viewing the cracked parts of our lives?! Is there only one perspective or can every "flaw/fault/difference" be something God will use to let His light shine through in our lives?

2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

It is easy for all of us to allow pride and arrogance to infiltrate our lives and we easily become self-sufficient. Maybe God wants to keep us humble and not comfortable? I truly believe God wants to accomplish significant things through us in our "cracked" state. This is when He can do His best work. It is not about us!

Speaking of perspective:

What about thanking God for the things in your life that make you feel weak and inadequate and different? Maybe those are the very things that allow God to demonstrate His power in your life and keep you dependent on Him?

Join us this week on Girlfriendit Radio with our special guest, Krista McGee, author of a new release, Anomaly, the first in a trilogy of books. Written with teens in mind, it speaks to all of us.

"My prayer is that, as my readers get to know Thalli, they see her differences as making her special, and through that, they see their differences make them special, as well." -Krista

Also joining our show is Janet Drez whose passion for teens has led she and her husband, Mark, to create the Ministry of Casa de Vida.
