I am guilty!
…of feeling inadequate.
…of wanting to be someone other than who I am.
…of trying to fit in and be like others.
…of not being ME…of not being who God created me to be.
Is there anyone out there who feels this same way? I really don’t believe I am alone in this.
Some time ago…Jesus began a good work in me. And as Paul stated, I am sure Jesus will finish what He started. I just have to learn to get out-of-the-way and allow Him to do it.
I am not inadequate – because I know God loves me and calls me His child. I am His daughter because I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior.
I don’t need to be anyone other than who God created me to be. And you know what – that person is AWESOME because of who He is in my life!
I have to quit trying to fit in, to be ‘somebody’. By God’s mercy, I am a living sacrifice – holy and acceptable to Him. I am not supposed to conform to this world but be transformed into what God desires of me.
I just need to be ME! I am to love the Lord with all my heart, my mind and my soul. I need to grow my relationship with Jesus each and every moment of each and every day. It IS no longer I who lives…but Christ who lives in me! ☺
Don’t allow yourself to get caught up in guilt. Easy to do, hard habit to break but a worthless emotion. God is just waiting on each of us to allow Him to grow us as He desires. He is desiring us to seek Him with our whole hearts and nothing less. Jesus loves us! My Bible tells me so!
