this post goes out to anyone who has ever felt less than. those who are constantly abused. to those who don’t know their worth.
we don’t realize how much power we have – we don’t have to drag our insecurities, our past experiences, or stereotypes with us. we can move forward to fulfill God-given purpose. Yes- the world can put us in boxes, shoot, we put ourselves in boxes. Break free….walk away. See yourself and your God-given beauty, ability, and purpose.
I was telling my friend the other than that there should be NOTHING that I want more than God’s presence, His approval, and His love. All other things come second. Insecurities set in when these things become idols and they can’t fill that void. Let go of man-made idols – see beyond the material.
You are beautifully and wonderfully made. titles and enhancements can NEVER compare to who you already are.
“Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me,O God.
They cannot be numbered!”
But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you.
O Israel, the one who formed you says,
“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
Listen to me, all you in distant lands!
Pay attention, you who are far away!
The Lord called me before my birth;
from within the womb he called me by name.
What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
You keep track of all my sorrows.
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.
God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.
1 John 4:16
