Do you consider yourself lovable just the way you are? In a world that tries to mold us into one generic brand of one another, it’s become more difficult to live as the confident original version of ourselves that God intended for us to be. Please share your own comments, thoughts and tips below on how we can all stay true to our original design, gifts and callings, being our own brand of Be-You-Tiful! Thanks for sharing!
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14.
A FREE EXCERPT FROM “I MADE IT THROUGH” BY BUKKY AGBOOLA.
“Here I humbly share another of the faith principles the Lord Jesus has taught me. God’s destiny finds us! His divine interruptions transform our lives when we step out in faith, based on His word, completely trusting in and faithfully serving Him wherever He has currently placed and positioned us. He comes suddenly, interrupting our lives with His divine destiny. I once heard someone describe it this way, “God is like nothing, nothing, nothing; BAM!” In 1 Samuel 9, God’s destiny found Saul as he diligently searched for his father’s donkeys. Instead of finding the donkeys he received a kingdom. It found David while he tended to and protected his father’s flock. Destiny interrupted the young Virgin Mary as she went about her everyday duties. The list goes on and on: Moses while he tended sheep in Midian, Joseph in prison… An unending adventure of faith and wonder awaits you!” Happy New Day!
Dear friends Gratitude determines Altitude. Let’s begin to engage, respond and relate to the people around us with appreciation. Not only as an occasional response to the benefits that we receive, but as an ongoing overriding attitude in EVERY situation. This won’t always be easy. Picture this, a morning cartoon once showed a very long line of people at the “Complaints” window, while there was no one at the “Gratitude” window. Thanking God with music, lifting your hands, shouts of joy like we do for our favorite sports teams, or just singing while lying down on your bed, can create a flow from God to us. Gratitude will lift us and the people around us up! I thank God for you my dear friends.
“Let the faithful rejoice that He honors them. Let them sing for joy as they lie on their beds. Psalm 149:5
