Hey everyone, hope you're having a blessed week and making it over the hump. This week's nugget of #WednesdayWisdom is yet another Y.E.S. acronym, a word on self-love. The Y.E.S. Exchange continues.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. - 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)
Last week, we discussed how submitting to God's will means seeing your circumstances through a faith-filtered lens. When you view your situation through God's eyes, the mountain has to move. The same applies to the way you see yourself. We've all had moments where we've felt imperfect, inadequate, less than, because we live in a society where the standard of beauty has been reduced to artificial body parts. People are obsessed with having the perfect physique, measuring their worth according to number of social media likes. The good news is, we don't have to worry about reaching unrealistic standards. God has already set us apart.
In case nobody's told you lately, you are royalty. You're worth so much more than all the likes and comments on all your social media sites combined...and then some. When you're a child of God and you're walking in His will, you can walk confidently knowing that you have a purpose, regardless of what the world says. You are enough for what and who God has called you to. You are incredible, because you were handcrafted by a magnificent God who loves you beyond comprehension. His love for you can never be measured. He can use you whether your selfie got 3 likes or 3,000. You are wonderful because you were made in His image, and regardless of how you feel, smile every time you look in the mirror, because His light in you cannot be hidden. If you're struggling with self-love, thank God for loving you and ask Him to change the way you look at yourself. Make a conscious effort to see yourself through His eyes. When you let His love for you teach you how to love yourself, your whole life will change. #WednesdayWisdom
