I know you took a look at yourself in the mirror today. What did you see? A tired, broken body? Eyes masking the torment coursing through your mind? A reflection reminding you of every flaw covering your life? Forget it all! It’s time you start allowing God to step into your life and change your image of yourself.
“He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.” Titus 3:5
You’re actions alone will never be good enough. But that’s okay; God wants you to rely on Him. And trust me, when you stop carrying around the burden of trying (and desperately failing) to do anything without Him, you realize your “good enough” was nowhere near what you wanted anyways. Giving it all, and I mean all, will radically change your life!
The day you stop fighting to prove your worth, you will begin to see your worth in God. He created you, He knows you, and loves you despite all of your flaws. He knows the deepest, darkest things you hide from the world. And still loves you. Let Him in. Stop fighting. Start seeing yourself the way He created you instead of the way the world wants you to see yourself. You are worth so much more!! And you don’t have to do a thing to prove it. Let Him prove it to you and it will begin to shine through as evidence.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Psalm 139: 13-15
