It’s Not You, It’s Me!

From years of not liking myself to trying to be like others to wishing I had better parents, better clothes, a better car, a better house to realizing that the better I wanted only existed because I thought what I had was not enough.  I was not enough!

Now I realize it was!  I was unique and different on purpose!  I didn’t have to be like others, I was created to be just me.  There is no one in the world like me.  I’m sure those who know me are grateful (humor inserted).

I couldn’t be like someone and fit into their world because there is no one like them. God only created one of them. That’s why I failed at being like them. I’m not them, I’m only me. You are created to be only like you. You are wonderfully and beautifully made. You are God’s precious child! You are his masterpiece, his one-of-a-kind!

You made all the delicate inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! You 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. I can’t even count them. They outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up you are still with me.   Psalm 139:13-18 NLT

You were created by your Heavenly Father who wanted you more than anything! You were created on purpose, with a purpose and for His purpose! He has a great and wonderful plan for your life! You Matter; just being uniquely wonderful, beautiful, marvelous YOU! You are one-of-a-kind!

Let every created thing give praise to the Lord, for He issued His command and they came into being. Psalm 148:5 NLT He commanded that you be here! He commanded you here for a great work, a great plan and wonderful life!   Celebrate YOU! BE Only You!
