B is for Believe

For the A to Z challenge this year, I’m posting about one of my favorite things: Living the life you were born to live. I’ve been so blessed with a family that constantly encourages me and builds me up and I want to pass that along to y’all! I’ll be traveling a lot during the month, so some of the posts are scheduled ahead of time and answering comments might take some time. I’ll try and keep up though. Thanks for stopping by! 

B is for Believe…

A to Z Challenge 

It’s not always easy to believe in yourself. There are so many negative influences that are pounding away at each of us. The world is constantly telling us we can’t do it, we’re not worth it, we’re not good enough, bla, bla, bla. 

Do you know what though? God created you for a special reason. There’s not a single person in the world that’s a mistake. You are here for a purpose and a reason. You were born to do great things. No matter what you’ve done, no matter how un-redeemable you think your life is, God can still do great things through you. 

Psalm 139:13-16: For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

You need to believe in yourself. When I say that, I don’t mean that you need to believe in your strength, your goodness, or your amazing abilities. What I mean is you need to believe in the fact that God can use you to do great things. He can work though you in ways more wonderful than you can even imagine. 

Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

In God’s eyes, we are precious and wonderful. Why don’t we try and start seeing ourselves the way that He see’s us? When we begin to see our worth in God’s eyes, it helps us to in turn help others to see how much they’re worth to God. 

1 John 3:1a: Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God.

So, next time you start to get down on yourself, why not remember this verse: 

Philippians 4:8: Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    If one can get a hold of this idea, that helps with your post from yesterday. It's also important to let others know that we believe in them. Great post and looking forward to “C.”
