Day 13: Believe it or not


Do you ever get tired of

YOURSELF?

You know, those parts of you that you just don't like.

Now I am not talking about "body" parts,

but the "you" that shows up that "you" wish wouldn't.

You know~

Did I really say that? Did I really think that? Do I really feel this?

And the answers are~

Yes. Yes. Yes I did. Yes you did.

Ugh.

I just woke up with this unsettling feeling

that won't go away and it is because

I don't like how I feel and I don't know why I feel it.

For some reason everything that I don't like about myself is plaguing me.

There is nothing specific that happened, as I can't pinpoint it,

but the longer I stay focused on "me" the longer I will feel like this.

Phew...I said it and

GOD heard it as you did too

and right now

I know why I am tired of myself~

Because I don't think of me the way

GOD

thinks of me

because I know too much about myself...

But then

GOD

does too

BUT HE Says~

You are a New Creation IN HIM 2 Corinthians 5:17

You are Chosen IN HIM I Peter 2:9

You are Complete IN HIM Colossians 2:9-10

You are Free IN HIM John 8:36

You are Forgiven IN HIM Ephesians 1:17

You are MY Masterpiece Ephesians 2:10

And the list goes on and on and on~

The IN CHRIST list

that makes me and makes you

~everything that we are not

~everything that we can't be on our own

because

GOD never tires of us

or

HE would have never

LOVED us so much to send

HIS SON

to take all of the parts of us

that we don't like~

that just won't go away on their own no matter how hard we try~

so that we can live

as a

New Creation. Chosen. Complete. Free. Forgiven

and so much more,

because

IN HIM

we are

HIS MASTERPIECE

who HE so Loves

that HE never gives up on

as HE won't let us stay as we are

because we were made for so much more~

"We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist.

But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright!

We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as GOD sees us,

knowing HIM directly just as HE knows us!" I Corinthians 13:12

Hmm..

So maybe I just need to get over "myself"

because

GOD has

and just

BELIEVE all Who HE says I Am

whether I BELIEVE it or not

because

HE BELIEVES It

whether

you or I

BELIEVE it or not

because

You are more than just a RESOLUTION IN HIM

Therefore~

"Since, then, you have been raised with CHRIST, set your hearts on things above, where CHRIST is, seated at the right hand of GOD.

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

For you died, and your life is now hidden with CHRIST in GOD." Colossians 3:1-3

Hmm...

So what do you think of yourself now?

Because

YOU SAY (listen below)
