I will confess and praise You for the wonder of my birth. Psalm 139:14
This week I want you to ponder the wonder of your life. You are important. Uniquely made. A one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Knit together in your mother’s womb by God. Yet, how many of us feel our lives are a mistake? Or that we should be smarter? Or funnier? Or skinnier? In our eyes, we see imperfections, but not in God’s eyes. He sees us as his beloved child, perfect just as we are. I came across a quote this week and it is surely worth sharing.
“Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.” ~ C. JoyBell C.
This week, I want you to practice waking each morning with an attitude of gratitude. Each day I want you to focus on one thing that you are grateful for about your life. Eyes to see. Wisdom. Ability to learn from your mistakes. Lift yourself up! Write positive affirmations about yourself that confirm your self-worth. Write them on an index card and carry them with you as a reminder to love and care for yourself. You are a child of a King. Royalty. Worthy. Blessed beyond blessed. Count them, name them one by one this week. And remember to be thankful to the God who created you.
Grateful to be your friend, Linda
