IT IS 'OKAY' TO BE YOU

joyce meyer said the above phrase as i watched her sermon on line somedays back : "it is okay to be you- eat the cookie, buy the shoe." i.e clebrate yourself, your uniquness.
but how many of us are 'REALLY' okay with who we are, with where we are, with what we got.... how many of us believe without wavering that YOU{me} is the only way to be, is the way God intended...
how many of us think the next 'chic' or 'stud' has it better than we do... that if only God made me more like X or if i had the style,looks and talents as Y... my life will be 'perfect."
confession: sometimes i do think all this... and truth be told sometimes we all do; some of us more than others but never the less we all guilty!!!
we need to shake of that 'less than' mentality; FYI: the ideal for any person to be is himself or herself...
we need to be confident in who we are in our Lord and say or preferably shout "it is okay to be me!!"
david said in psalm 139 vs 13-14:
you made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mothers womb.
thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
your workmanship is marvellous-and how well i know it.
David said "thank you for making ME...." he too knew that it IS okay to be himself.
God crafted you on purpose, the way you think, talk, walk, laugh, LOOK... everything about you was thought out CAREFULLY and LOVINGLY by GOD!
tomorrow is valentines day; and while you and I appreciate those who make life special for us... while we celebrate others; let us celebrate ourselves too!
it is okay to be CHICHI!!
it is okay to be YOU!!
'WHY?."
because either way we are, he LOVES us and will use us. we have been formed to fit into his specific plan for our individual lives!!
happy vals day.
his peace.chichi

I totally loved this piece...

Sometimes we just forget how UNIQUELY God has created each one of us.

One quote that'll never leave my head is this: "if you try to copy someone else, all u'll ever be is a cheap imitation at best."
