I recently posted this meme and the response was overwhelming. Several people wrote and thanked me for the reminder. This year, let’s learn to love ourselves by taking our eyes off our flaws and putting them on the flawless nature of God! If we consider God perfect, then we must remember that He created us in His perfect image. Here are three habits of mind to embrace for a victorious year.
We are fearfully and wonderfully made!
Psalms 139:13 says that God made all the delicate, inner parts of our bodies and knit us together in our mother’s womb. We are to Thank Him for making us so wonderfully complex!!!!
Stop comparing ourselves to others and start acknowledging our strengths.
There is no such thing as Wonder-Woman! She only exists in the imagination of comic book writers so lets put away our unrealistic expectations and start embracing the powerful women Gods created us to be. If I asked you to name 3 women that have impacted your life or our world, whom would you name?
I’m taking a guess here but I’d just bet your list would be ordinary women that embraced their God-given potential, tuned a deaf ear to their critics, and made a difference.
Affirm how great our creator has made us and tune out the voices of negativity
After reading this post, sit down and make a list of at least 20 things that make you special! DON’T be modest. Post it on your refrigerator and read it every day! Every day thank God for each and every item on the list. We live in a negative world so give yourself permission to tune out the voices of negativity – including your own! Start saying nice things to yourself!
Remember, God didn’t make any junk!
