I’ve been so inspired by water colors and typography, so I decided to design myself a desktop wallpaper last night. 🙂 And it’s always a refreshing reminder to know that the God of the universe has called us His beloved children. I think one of the best feelings in the world is the freedom that stems from rejoicing in your identity — and that comes with knowing Who you belong to.
It shouldn’t matter if the world says you’re too loud or too quiet, too opinionated or not opinionated at all, too outspoken or too shy — or if they question your personality, your dreams or your strengths, the very things you’ve been measuring your worth on. It shouldn’t matter what they say because you belong to a God who genuinely loves you for the person He has designed you to be.
So learn to see yourself through His eyes today. Appreciate yourself for who you are and just rejoice in being YOU. Embrace your silliness, awkwardness, or whatever else you think has been holding you back from being confident, and understand that you have been uniquely designed for a unique purpose. Your life counts — YOU count. Be comfortable in your own skin. Be thankful that you’re YOU — unique, beautiful, strong — and let no one take that away from you.
