God made me unique. He formed me in my motherís womb and fashioned me with great love and joy.
God made me wholesome but not beautiful, because He knows beauty will make me vain. Instead, He gives me a sensitive heart that leans on Him so that He can work inside my heart to reflect His beauty for the world to draw Him in.
God made me a little shy to teach me humility and depend on Him for confidence, instead of trusting in my ability alone.
God made me lonesome at times so I would turn to Him in my aloneness.
God made me smile and laugh at times but not all the time to remind me that weeping may last through the night, but joy comes in the morning.
God didnít make me rich, but always there to provide my needs. He knows that if Iím wealthy, I will be proud and boast about it and will forget about Him, my real Master. He gave me just enough to share with those in need.
God gave me talents and gifts that I can share, yet He gave me just the right measure of faith in myself, so I wonít boast of my abilities, instead boast of what God has done in my life
God gave me my family just the way they are so that it will remind me that in this world, no matter how imperfect we maybe, we need relationship and each other. He reminded me that I am not a perfect parent so I will depend on my Perfect Heavenly Father.
Many times Iíve stumbled and fallen, first, because I had not taken His hand. So many lessons Iíve learned the hard way, just because I failed to listen to His voice. Yet, so many times God watched me go my way alone, only to watch me return to His arms again, and He never get tired welcoming me back making me whole again.
God sees me beautiful inside and out because He created me in His image. How I reflect His beauty is up to me.
ďI praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.Ē Psalm 139:14
