Layers: The "Self" Issues
Today I thought I'd share with you a chapter from my latest (Bible study) release: Layers. So many of us struggle with poor self-image in such an appearance-focused, self-absorbed world. I hope this will give you some things to think about, and to be reminded that you are a God-crafted, one-of-a-kind, especially loved, human being. :)
Jesus loves me this I know…
Find a mirror and spend a couple minutes intently looking at yourself. Seriously! Get up and find that mirror and really examine the image in the glass.
I don’t sit with kings or pen inspiring songs.
My name may never be known or face be recognized,
But God says, “You are chosen!”
I was formed by the Master.
His loving hand knit me together and created who I am.
God tells me, “You are special.”
He has walked with me in times of trouble as well in times of peace.
He holds my hand and keeps me stilled.
God says to me, “You are my beloved.”
