When I got saved, I struggled with the fact that I didn't have to perform in order for God to love me. I had no idea of the freedom He just gave me. All I knew was that I got saved and that I was going to heaven someday. That's all I thought there was! Little did I know...
The sad thing is that it took me the better part of 29 years to finally figure out that it doesn't matter what I look like, what I wear, how I do my hair or makeup, or even how thin or how fat I am. God loves me for ME. I am HIS design. So of course I'm not going to be like anyone else! I shouldn't compare myself to anyone else. I am ME! I am a one-of-a-kind, no-one-else-like-me, He-broke-the-mold-when-He-made-me, girl. So are you!
Exhibit God with your uniqueness. When you magnify your Maker with your strengths, when your contribution enriches God's reputation, your days grow suddenly sweet. ~Max Lucado (Cure for the Common Life (2005))
