Enjoying Who God Created You to Be
by Joyce Meyer
Start believing today that you are a rare, one-of-a-kind, valuable and precious woman. To help you learn how to be successful at being yourself, I want to give you some easy-to-follow suggestions:
Speak good things about yourself. Declare what God’s Word says about you. For example, say to yourself, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ. I am made acceptable in the Beloved. God formed me with His own hand, He loves me, and God doesn’t make mistakes.”
Avoid comparing yourself with other women. God must love variety, or all of us wouldn’t look so different. He has created each of us differently right down to our fingertips. We can look to certain people as good examples to follow, but even then, good traits if duplicated will manifest differently through our individual personalities.
Focus on your potential instead of your limitations. Refuse to concentrate on your weaknesses except in an effort to turn them into strengths. Keep your flaws in perspective. People with a high level of confidence have just as many weaknesses as those without confidence, but they focus on their strengths instead of their weaknesses.
Learn to cope with criticism. If you dare to be different, you’ll have to expect some criticism. Going along with the crowd when you know in your heart that God is leading you in a different direction is one of the reasons women don’t succeed at being themselves. You won’t be comfortable in your own skin if you go against your own convictions.
You are a woman who is perfected and complete in Him. When you start to believe that, you will no longer feel that you are lacking anything or that there is anything wrong with you.
Remember this: God will never anoint you to be anyone other than yourself. Let now be your time to go forward and be set free from the torments of comparing yourself with others and trying to be someone you’re not. God is proud of who He made you to be!

1. Sometimes, God leads you to do difficult things, not because He wants to make your life difficult, but because He has breakthrough for you. He wants you show you that His grace is enough even if you don’t think you are.
2. It’s never too late for anything— to go back to God, to start reading books, to start studying, to start exercising— and you can start now.
3. There is so much rationality in not worrying.
4. God created you with many passions and talents and it glorifies and honors Him when you pursue them.
5. The hard times are just a part of your journey; they’re not your destination. There is always reason to have hope.
6. The words you say have power— in your life, and most especially, in other people’s lives.
7. Every moment you spend with people is an opportunity to be a light and encouragement."

"God protected you from that relationship so stop being mad & bitter that things didn’t work out. While your concerned about how you feel, God is much more concerned about your purpose & quite frankly, that person wasn’t included in it."
Day 1 (Friday, April 5th 2013): “Just because I’m mad doesn’t mean I stop caring!” I want people to understand this about me… I actually get mad because I do care! This is a way to start off with Day 1!
Day 2(Saturday, April 6th, 2013): It is finally Barbecue weather again!!!!!!
Day 3(Sunday, April 7th, 2013): I’ve missed a few episodes of The Voice so we spent some time watching recorded episodes. Also, Job 37:22 was used in Sunday nights sermon! Still resounding. God is awesome and majestic! We saw it all day!

"So you tried to do your own thing, apart from God, and it didn’t work. Now what? Come on back. You aren’t damaged goods, you aren’t a different person, you’e not lesser. What you might just be is a little wiser because you tried not God’s plan, it didn’t work, and now you are ready for something new."
I will be once again beginning my photo journal. It will be marking something new in my life… I’m not ready to share yet… but every day will be a step in the journey… I’m ready! #challenging #NewMe!
