The Lifter of Our Heads
“Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.” (Proverbs 22:2)
Business women know the importance of networking and meeting the right people in order to grow your career. First impressions are everything, and you pray that you say and do the right thing. Lack of confidence can be kryptonite to a career.
So, you can imagine my embarrassment and regret the other day when I was introduced to someone who would be considered a ‘hub’. A few moments into the casual chat, my friend nudges me and says in front of him, ‘Lori, you’ve got cupcake stuck to the middle of your forehead.”
Wiping my brow with the back of my hand, there it was, white fluffy buttercream with a few chunks of coconut.
Not professional, but memorable for sure.
I could have dwelt on the faux pas, but I am not persuaded by people. Yes, I take counsel and I am a wise woman with regards to my career, but I know who holds the future. Our God appoints and brings down kings. His blood is not a respecter of people but reaches out to all and offers salvation and new life without discrimination. So why do we so often get caught up with ‘impressive’ people and trip over ourselves in a sad attempt to connect with them?
We are all the same, girls. Don’t be affected by anyone other than the Holy Spirit. Be true to who God called you to be. Be proud in your position as daughter of Christ, but at the same time, humbled by the recognition of your need for a savior. He is the lifter of our heads and holds our futures in His hands. Go with God and everywhere you walk you will be that ‘key’ person, making a positive influence in others’ lives. Nothing—not even a bit of food stuck on your forehead—can change who you are in Christ.
