Monday Meditation: You Are A Gift

monday meditationPositive affirmations are so much more than just feel good quotes and positive statements.

You are a gift. I don’t mean that in a corny kind of way. I mean that in a sincere way.

You are a gift. There is no person in the world like you. In our social media hungry world, it is key to remember that we are truly more than the last picture we posted.

You are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). God knows the number of hairs on your head (Matthew 10:30). After all, He put them there, and colored them too! He knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). You can be confident that He knows and loves you inside and out.

But we still try to change our appearance — God’s handiwork. Why is that?

If it’s to impress people, attract attention, or make ourselves feel important, then we are fooling ourselves, thinking that these changes will make us happy.

Our happiness can only be found in the person of Jesus Christ. Anything else we try will fail.

Each of us was uniquely designed by God for His pleasure and purpose. Instead of wasting time trying to be someone else, let’s figure out how to step into the unique destiny He has for us.

You are a gift.
