Be You

Be you because there is no one like you. God made us all unique. As we get older, we start to understand that things from the past (or people) can keep us from moving forward. We either don’t like this or that about ourselves; we worry, fret, stress, get angry all because someone said something about nothing. Sometimes we try to be like someone else, which is not being who we were created to be.

As God is pruning us, (we feel like we’re somewhere in the wilderness doing time) He is molding and shaping as the fruits of the spirit–love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, and faith become part of us. During the wilderness time, we come to understand the fruit known as long suffering while learning to count it all joy when there are trials and tribulations that helps us grow.

When we know the Word of God for ourselves, deepen our personal relationship with Him, God opens our hearts and eyes to see and love like His Son, Jesus. It’s a beautiful thing when we walk through the season of change and we can embrace all the attributes that make us who we are in Christ. When we know who we are, its easier to let things go and let God. God is the only one that can open eyes to see the truth.

So let us “be” the women and men, God created us to be 🙂 Wahoo, we look good for a Monday 🙂

Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.

Romans 8:28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
