Just Be You!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
For as long as I can remember, I have always worried about what others think of me. I always felt like I never fit in anywhere or with anyone. I was the one who wondered to the coroner and was better off alone. It wasn’t until I realized that it is not important what others think of me but that God made me and I am made in His image. But It wasn’t until this week, I started worrying about what others would say about me due to having all my top teeth removed for my health to improve. I was speaking to a good friend who told me, “Don’t worry about what others say, remember you are fearfully and wonderfully made.” When I heard that, I cried because I knew I had friends who loved, family who didn’t care what I looked like and a God who made me, loves me and will never turn his back on me.
We have to always remember that other peoples opinions about us doesn’t matter, there is only one person whose opinion I care about and that is God’s. I can’t stress enough to my three teenage daughters and their friends, Just Be You! Don’t worry about others. God loves you for you! Every time you look in the mirror, remember you are beautiful! You are exactly who God created you to be.
