Changing the way I see things

When you’ve been told your whole life (or at the least the impressionable time in your life) that you are too something… too fat, too skinny, hair is too long, too short, too dark, too blond… you’ve felt like you’ve been picked last on the playground for everything, you’re friends have always been more talented, prettier… blah blah… And no one ever really told you any differently, it’s hard to see what God created you to be. It’s hard to see all the fogginess of that how beautiful God created you to be.

Still reading SUN STAND STILL and still oh-so-good, but I was praying this morning “please God let me see me how You see me”. Believe it or not, praying that takes big faith for me.There are some amazing things that I’d like to do for Jesus. Just have faith. But deep down, I think that if I really believed I am ALL that God created me to be, I’d further the Kingdom, think of all those I could speak life into who have the same issues as me. Because with everything in our lives, we were HAND CRAFTED! HIS HANDS! He knows the hairs on our heads (Luke 12:7), He loves us with an everlasting love (Jer 31:3), we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14)! And, indeed, we are His masterpiece (Eph 2:10 NLT).

Dear God, help me to see myself, and everyone around me just like you see us! Let Your love pour into us and then out of us, so that we can lead people to You, to Your love! I love You Jesus, help me to believe all the great things You have for me, and the amazing things You have created in me! In Your loving name, I pray!

Eph 2:10 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
