I Am Who God Made Me to Be...

But by the Grace of God
and his grace to me was not without effect
1Corinthians 15: 10

This one took me a while to learn
and there are still times that I struggle with it.

Do Not wish your life was different.
Do not look at other people with Envy
wishing you had what they had,
that you lived in a better  house,
or the kind of marriage they have,
what others look like..

ENVY is offensive to God.
You are who he made you to be,
and in his eyes that is Just Right....
Gods awesome Handywork..
You are where you are suppose to be for a reason
either for your benefit , or maybe for someone elses..

Keep looking UP to God
and thanking him for what we are and what he has given us

For when you get down casted and look DOWN
(towards "the chump")  he is quick
to point out all our  frustrations in life,
to help us to be self centered and
start comparing ourselves to other..

God Loves Us just the way we are,,
And thats good enough for me..

I dont need to empress anyone in this life.
But I do want to make God Proud...

What an absolutely wondrous reminder! So often it seems that we do get caught up in the worldly distractions of what we should look like, how to think, what to wear, where to be seen, yada yada yada... Not! I love the last line you wrote. So my thought and hope! Thank you again for another timely reminder. I hope you are having a great day, I love you loads!
