These lovely little silicone bracelets have appeared out of what seems like nowhere began spreading messages galore with their rising and falling popularity. A trip to any major retailer will give you an array of these bracelets with various colors and messages. Some aren't very good messages, I will say. Many I won't let my daughter wear!
I know 'WWJD' has been a popular thing for a while now, it was even a huge focus in the movie 'The Woodcarver', which I recently reviewed. I will shamefully admit guilt to answering WWJD with a retort in the general area of 'Well, Jesus wouldn't have had to deal with this because...' Perhaps the question would have been better suited if it asked 'WWGT' (what would God think?), at least then I wouldn't be able to come up with a retort! That one just kind of smacks me in the face!
I digress, the reminder that 'I am a WOG' is one that requires and asks for no response. It is a statement, plain and simple. Either you are, or you are not. I feel like that is a reminder I need. I never forget about God, but when my temper flares Ido tend to forget who I am supposed to be.
As a WOG, there are things that are expected to shine in us. Sometimes, my darkness dims it up a bit. As of late, I'm not sure it's even dimly lit, much less shining in the the reflection of God's Great Glory! I could come up with a thousand excuses, but the truth is simple: I CONTROL MY ACTIONS!
I am wearing my bracelet to remind myself. Perhaps it will help me with my vices. These Christian Wristbands as low as 75 cents with free shipping. Such a small price for such a great reminder! They also have 'Child of God' bracelet. These would be great for our women's group! Hope you'll remember that you are a Woman of God, and if you need a reminder now you know where to get one!
