LOVING OURSELVES THE WAY GOD LOVES US

But who are you, o man, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’” Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?

                                                                                                                                Romans 9:20 - 21





It’s something how young girls today are not satisfied by the way God made them. They want to look like the woman on TV and in the magazines or like their other friends. First of all, God made everybody beautifully and unique. He wants us to appreciate the way He made us. Like I said in the early message could you imagine if everybody was the same? God knew what He was doing when He made us. He wanted us to have our own unique look. We need to thank Him for making us unique and beautiful. Every day you need to look in the mirror and say God thank you for making me who I am. It’s sad when girls don’t like the way God made them. You might not want to think this way but, when you don’t like yourselves you are slapping God in the face by thinking that God made a mistake or that He did a bad job. I know that you don’t mean to do that, so you need to start thanking Him. Don’t be concerned about how other people look. Second, the young girls you see on TV and in the magazine are people that are either covered with makeup or airbrushed. They also starve themselves in an unhealthy manner just to please others themselves. You can’t compare yourselves with these young girls in Hollywood. Be proud of the way God made you. 

In what ways are you proud about yourself?

  1. I have always been pretty comfortable in my skin, but there were always things that I hoped would change, like my "cherubic" face. Luckily, I figured out that that's not going to change and it's what makes me, me. I've accepted the fact that I look young and "cute" and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. I am me, and that is how it is meant to be!

    1. Amen. It's great when we have that younger look. By the time we turn 40, we look like where in our 20's. Everybody always think I'm younger then I look.

  2. For awhile I had to have positive verses written on mirrors and note cards to block out the negativity because of the way I used to feel about myself. It took a lot of time with the Word and prayer and speaking aloud to myself to finally understand my true worth in God's eyes. I finally understood who I am but most importantly WHOSE I am and I am happy to say that (while not perfect always) I have a healthy self-image. It's sad because even in churches most women have low self images. Great post! Thanks for visiting my site! :)
