“Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation!” Psalm 139:13,14 (MSG)
So often in life we try to be what everyone else wants us to be, or who we think they want or need us to be, so that we can win whatever it is we think we need to win from them. We reach for love, belonging, approval, acceptance from outside sources instead of finding the true joy in simply being who God has made us to be—someone pre-approved, loved and accepted in every possible way!
Uniquely and marvelously made as a gift for the world, you have purpose, value, and worth given by God and existing deep within your own heart to be shared with others, not hidden away. Never to be compromised to gain something from another person that you already so richly possess!
Beloved child of the Most High God, be you! Be free! It is the most secure, solid and glorious place to be. Strip off the masks, the striving and the stress—find the freedom and the rest that comes when you accept the wonder of who you are—just exactly as He created you to be!
Look beauty, it’s true! All of His works are breathtaking, and that beloved one, includes you!
Dearest Father, with a humble heart we thank you that we are fearfully and wonderfully made and marvellous are the works of Your hand. There are times Poppa that we just can’t see it—we see only what others have told us all of our lives and the judgments we have made against ourselves, rather than who You say we are.
Let Your voice, the voice of love, be the loudest voice in our lives and let us find our truest selves, in who we are in, and to, You. Let us find the peace that comes from being exactly who You made us to be, and in that peace Lord, let us live and stay completely and gloriously free!
For Who You are Lord, and all You have done, we give You thanks and praise.
