Do you realize your uniqueness? Despite your mistakes, bad decisions, weaknesses, and unfortunate circumstances God still sees you. God knows the treasure He has specifically placed inside of you. You have characteristic traits and gifts that were not given to the next person. Even if there are similarities but not a single person can do what you do in the way that you do it- that is how unique you are!
This should get you excited because it shows that the world needs you, otherwise God would not have approved you to still be alive. However, the tricky thing is you must also agree and pursue being you. You must be willing to accept and acknowledge this beautiful gift God has given to society through you. Sometimes we may feel we made too many mistakes to be redeemed by God, but nothing is beyond His redemptive power. He is waiting even now for you to return fully to Him, He knows your beginning from your end even the in-between does not frighten God.
You have the grace to be you.
What does being you look like? Well, that is a question only you and God can answer. Sometimes we stumble into who we truly are but a lot of times it takes an intentional journey of discovering what works best for you, what settles in your spirit, what irritates you most, what interests you, what do you enjoy? Being able to answer these questions for yourself can help you understand your strengths and weaknesses. It will uncover who God truly says you are. When you finally start to agree with what God says about you, you will come alive and impact someone else who may need what God has already given you the grace to do.
Please do not rob this world of the gift that lies inside of you. I know I have resisted my journey because I have mainly focused on my negatives, I felt unworthy although God would call me forward to attempt new things. Sometimes, we may be our own stumbling block- do not allow that to be your narrative.
Today, I encourage you to be who you are, walk your journey, share your testimony of how you have come to be who you are today. Today, I thank God for you, there is none created exactly like you. Today, I celebrate your uniqueness and ask that you take it seriously. I validate you and I just want to remind you that God thinks you are amazing! Why would He think that? Because He made you that amazing. Step into the anointing and grace of who you are.
“I will praise you LORD for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvellous are your works and that my soul knows very well” -Psalm 139: 14.
