I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well (Psalm 139:14 KJV)
You are unique! You are Special! You are God's creation! If you are saved, that makes it better yet - You are a child of a KING. Once you're seeking after SPIRITUALITY and not tradition and religion, you'll be able to live a FREE and OPEN MINDED life. Don't let anybody make you feel any less than who you are! You hear?
The unique part about life is that I don't look like you, you don't look like your friend and your friend doesn't look like his/her best friend's grandfather. A little tricky, but it's true. God took time out to craft YOU into YOU. That's why we ought to praise and thank him for doing just that.
Take time to look into the mirror, examine and admire yourself from head to toe STALK NAKED and HUG yourself and say . . . WOW. . . I'm Handsome or WOW . . . I'm beautiful. Let me say that again. The next time you exit your bath and enter your bedroom, drop the towel, stand in front of the mirror and admire God's handy work. Love your build men. Love your curves and breasts women. Stop comparing yourself to others. That's a joy stealer! LOVE YOURSELF! YOU LOOK AMAZING!!!
Don't dwell on mistakes you've made in life. Focus on your triumphs and opportunities. God pulled out some of the messed up people in life during Bible times and used them tremendously.
Someone sent me this smartphone message below, (AUTHOR UNKNOWN) and I had to conclude - it's . . . . Ohhh soooooo true.
Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Lot got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old, and Lazarus was dead.
Each of these had an opportunity to live regretting and complaining, but instead they made themselves available to God to use them and bless them tremendously.
You are probably missing out on your blessing because you are too busy complaining about everything which include the problems you face right now. Change your mindset - look up, look ahead. Don't bash Yourself! You are more than a conqueror!
Hope is ahead!
