Are you like me? Do you find yourself looking in the bathroom mirror while you are getting ready in the morning, giving yourself a “pep talk” before the day officially begins? Sometimes the pep talk is meant to pump up my motivation for that day. Other times the talk just falls flat. It feels empty, and I am left wondering who I am and what is my purpose?
Who am I, really? Who are you? Am I really anything special? The question hangs there, in the early morning air, leaving me wondering.
Then Jesus speaks to me and my heart responds.
He tells me…….
I am loved. — We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us…(nothing) can separate us from the love of God. Romans 8:37-39
I am strong. — I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
I am wonderful. — I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
I am wanted. — God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
I am……..because, HE IS!
