Encouragement to fully accept yourself as you are created to be

You are
as ordinary
as the sun shining
in the depths of my heart

and the moon
after everything else goes dark.

You are as ordinary
as the trees dancing
with each new breeze,
shimmering leaves exist
to enrich the atmosphere.

You are created
in the image of
Pure Love
and Raw Power –
by the same Brilliance
that invented
every other

every canyon,
every wildflower…

I hope you never forget
how ordinary you are,
how at your core –
you are precisely
as marvelous
as every one
of God’s creations.

Genesis 1:27

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”

Often as children of God, we forget the awesome power God has bestowed upon each and every one of us. Created in His image and likeness, our thoughts, words and actions can ripple out and impact those around us in powerful ways.

Like the moon and stars – in your ordinary humanity just by being yourself, you are truly an extraordinary creation of infinite value because you were fashioned by Divine Hands with eternal purposes.

Where are you on your journey of self acceptance? Do you struggle with feeling too “ordinary” – as if that’s a bad thing when you’re created by an extraordinary God! Do you struggle to realize the infinite value of your presence here on earth? Comment below, and I’ll be delighted to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Lord help us realize the impact of who we truly are created to be. Help us come into our power as Your children, who are created in your image and likeness. Help us realize the impact of our thoughts, words, actions and prayers on the world around us. Teach us to align ourselves with your loving will. Give us the grace to shine as brightly as the sun and stars, so we can enrich the world with Your loving presence in us, just by being ourselves. In Jesus name, Amen.
