I wrote this on my instagram as I was reading through Genesis, and wanted to share it here. I hope it blesses and encourages you as we embark on a new year, May we never forget whose we are.
You were created in God’s image not the world’s.
And you know what? God saw all that He had made and it was good.
Did you catch that? Good.
You are good! Your image and self worth is good, because it resides in the One who is Good.
You can stop feeling like a failure. You can stop beating yourself up.
You may have things from 2018 rolling in to 2019.
The new year may already be starting off tough. You may not have goals and resolutions set.
You may be seeing everyone else standing so confident and bold, making you feel less than.
But my friend you’re good! You can let go of all that stuff you’re holding on to.
All the things you’re criticizing yourself for.
Your worth isn’t found in stuff, in looks, in money, in keeping up with the Joneses.
God created you to be a reflection of Him, and He knows that you need Him EVERY moment.
Lean on Him and stand proudly in whose you are.
Stop looking for validation from the world, and look to the One who created the world.
When you look in the mirror I hope you see the good, because God does and that’s all that matters.
Now fix your crown sis, you’re a daughter of a King!
