I got a tattoo…

A couple of months ago, I got a tattoo. I’d been thinking about it for quite a while – and I always knew that if I did it, it would be a Bible verse. It’s the only permanent thing I’d want on my skin – the one thing that never changes.

There was mixed reaction from the people who know me best. A few were horrified, thinking it was a bit ‘common’ but lots more, thought it was super cool.

My verse of choice; Psalm 37: 4-5; ‘Delight yourself in The Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart’.

Why that verse? Lots and lots of reasons which maybe one day I will share ….but right now, it’s because I love the constant reminder.

Having that on my wrist reminds me that every thought and major decision I make, is better if it’s rooted first in God’s desire for me.

By nature, I’m quite impulsive and I’m often more likely to be ruled by my emotions than by logic. That’s not always a bad thing – but emotions can be super deceitful, so my ‘body art’ reminds me, ‘Hey, don’t get carried away with yourself here…consult God first’.

It’s not a bad reason to get a tattoo.
