Pinterest intrigues me.
Sure, I like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter…but there is something about Pinterest.
I have to face it. It is a place of dreams, hopes, ideas….at least in my mind. I know that it is business for some; but for me, my boards prove otherwise:
- Warm Places We Love
- Great Organization Ideas
- Beach Quotes
- My Style
- Reorganize, Repurpose, Renew
I have 50 more boards, and 3.3K pins (I don’t know when that happened!) I even have five “secret” boards. Rather mysterious I say!
All these ideas to “better” myself, share who I am and what I like, find ideas to do all kinds of creative things. If these boards were actually bulletin boards in my craft room it would look like an episode of “Castle” as he and Beckett tried to solve a crime. Think of the suspense! (One of our favorite shows by the way…)
I would probably use string to connect boards since some pins could be on a couple of boards. In other words, it would be one big mess.
It is hard to keep track of all the things that I pin and like. Pinterest even reminds when I have already pinned something! I guess I am a creature of habit. Or my likes and dislikes and ideas are pretty consistent. Or I am not as mysterious as I thought.
I am so glad that I don’t confuse God. He knows me so well. He knows all my likes and dislikes. He knows all my faults, aspirations, desires, ideas. He knows me better than I know myself. He is even aware of my secret boards!
He may even have a Pinterest board with my name on it, who knows? He is not surprised by anything…and He might have some better ideas for me than I have for myself! Imagine that?
I am still learning to wait on Him. I have a tendency to rush in and not wait. I am waiting right now, and I am not doing a very good job. I have all these ideas, and like my Pinterest boards, I am all over the place.
But He knows…He knows the plans He has for me. And He reminded me yet again today. My board looks pretty clear to Him.
I love it when the Father takes me to a scripture that I know well, but haven’t really paid attention to in a while…….
I just need to listen more and pin less!
