Beautifully Created One
How do you view yourself? Are you harsh on yourself? Are you constantly wishing and thinking of things you could change about yourself? Do you find yourself wanting to be in someone elses shoes?
God has created each person individually for a specific purpose. Maybe you are called to be a pastor, a musician, a health professional, a counselor….these things should not label who you are but what you do. So often people label us according to our occupation, social status or hobbies…but we are so much more!
We are a child of God! A conqueror, a friend in time of need, an encourager, a blessed one, a peacemaker, a delightful one, a disciple, a messenger, a worshiper…the list goes on.
Throughout my pregnancy all I could think about was how awesome God is! He formed each of us with purpose in our mothers womb. Seeing my son form from 5 weeks in utero to meeting him when he was born showed me how thoughtful God is of each of us. How the precious hands that start out looking like flappers grow into beautiful tiny hands with fingers that may lead others into worship by playing instruments one day, by a tiny mouth that forms that may spread the gospel one day, by beautiful feet that will allow you to go where God has called you to go.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 NIV)
The main point I’m trying to get across is that God loves you & wants you to view yourself the way He does. He was so thoughtful when He created you. A challenge to you is when you look in the mirror call out things God calls you as: I am a child of God, I am beautiful because I was made in the image of God, I am a conqueror & fear has no hold on me, I am beloved, I am cheerful, I am a peacemaker, I am a loving person, I am kind, I am confident.
Proclaim these things over your life & very quickly your perspective will start to shift about yourself.
