Hey girl, can I interrupt your scrolling for just a sec to tell you something?
God has made you to be YOU!
I know we get so distracted in the comparison trap sometimes, (or am I the only one?🙋🏻 lol) believing we’d be enough if only we just had her talent, her financial resources, her friends, her confidence, her upbringing, her intellect, her ambition, her health and, my gosh, the list goes on doesn’t it?! But God, he made you exactly as you are for a purpose!
The Bible says you are his workmanship, his masterpiece, created for the purpose that he decided long before you were even born. (Ephesians 2:10) God is the most excellent & intentional Workman there is. He makes absolutely no mistakes & leaves nothing to chance. You are exactly who are you are for a PURPOSE, His purpose. God has specific work for you to do and no one can do it like you can. Even if you’re one of many people doing that thing you love, there’s no one who can do it like YOU.
No one has the exact experiences, perspective, memories, ideas, attitudes, beliefs that YOU do. Only you can live your life & do what God has called you to do exactly the way you can do it. Don’t think it all just “happens to be so.” God gave you the exact interests, abilities, passions, emotional temperament to fulfill the purpose that he has for YOU. But girl, here’s what I learned the hard way about being you: you gotta let go of needing to please everyone. Who you are won’t be for everyone & that is so very okay. You will touch, serve, & do life along side those people God meant for you. Others will fill in the gaps & touch the hearts of those meant for them. You run your race & cheer on that girl running hers because there is room for us all & we are all needed.
to be honest, I still need to remind myself of this on the daily so feel free to tag a friend who may need some encouragement! 💗
