The beauty of being yourself is embracing your Truths. When you know who you are in Christ, you do not have to live up to anyone’s standards or expectations. That is awesome news today! And it just makes life so much easier! If you are quiet…embrace it! Because God made you quiet. If you are loud….! Embarrass that…because God made you like that! People may say, oh you need to be this way or that way! But those are only their opinions. God breathed life in you and gave you a piece of his identity. You were made in the image of God and the closer you get to him, his likeness and characteristics will soon become yours. Know that nothing is flawed on you when you look like God from the inside out. So I say, Love all of You because at the end of the day, you are embracing God because you are his marvelous creation.

So the next time someone says, you need to be like…..  Simply smile and say to yourself “no I am like my creator and my creator made no mistakes on me”! Hallelujah! Receive that today!

 

“Genesis 1:27 – So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

“Genesis 1:31 – God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning–the sixth day.”

It’s funny how the very thing that you once hated becomes the very thing that you fall in love with.  There was a time I hated being so sensitive and emotional in tuned with others statement of mind or living situation. I’d cry at the drop of a dime, if I saw a hungry person, a stranded animal on the side of the road, a child without shoes on a cold day or an elderly person in a wheelchair strolling down the road howling groceries in their lap.

But as I have grown, I have learned that this sensitive heart of mine that I once hated and saw as a burden, as my downfall, I have learned that this is what makes me beautiful.  The softness of it and the beauty of my passion for others and their wellbeing is the very love that Christ has for us.  He melts at our very presence and worship.  He aches when we are in pain and feels our hurt.  He wants to be our provider and desires that we live a life full of his greatness and glory.  He cares if we are hungry, sick, sad, lonely, cold…. I have and am still learning to embrace this part of me – the part of me that I have tried to run from and tried to avoid facing because it just didn’t feel good, especially when I couldn’t help those people or situations.

I thank God for this heart of mine – the heart for his people and the deep desire to help others be the best that they can be. This is what it feels like to love others unconditionally and want the best for all mankind.  Lord, I thank you for a heart that loves sooo deeply till it hurts. I once saw myself as fragile as glass, but I have learned that you GOD is my strength and I don’t have to run from who and how you created me. For when I am weak, you are my strength! Thank you Lord for Love and this Huge Heart of Mine!!!!
