I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
Psalms 139:14 ESV
We live in a day and age where it seems that most people have no identity and if they do, they struggle with it. What I mean when I say that is they have have lost their sense of self, their own uniqueness. They carry other people’s image, they try to be like someone else, in which God never intended them to be. God wants us to embrace ourselves just as he created us and to be all that He has designed us to be. We all have been created differently and that’s what makes us unique, special, and beautiful. We all at some point or another have been a victim of trying to be like someone else. I say that because I sure have been in the past. There was a point in my life when I didn’t feel good about myself. I tried my hardest to be, act, talk, dress like others around me while burying my true self. I tried to fit in but it didn’t work. That’s what happens when we are trying to prove to others or even ourselves that we can also be like them, but that’s because in reality deep down we don’t feel good about ourselves. It wasn’t until I finally realized when God brought me to my senses that the way He designed me is different from other people and that’s okay. I don’t have to strive to be like the next person, I just have to embrace the person I already am. And I believe He will say the same thing to you. 😊
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 12:2 ESV
I encourage anyone reading this post to start seeing yourself as God sees you and not through other people’s perceptions of you. I believe the more we learn about who God is, the more we learn about who we are, because we are made in His image.
And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good…
Genesis 1:31 ESV
