The next writing prompt in “God is My Happy Place” is:
“You might be imperfect, but you are perfectly you.”
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:13-14 NIV
God created me to be me & not anyone else. I am His unique creation. We are all created by Him in the way He desired us to be created.
I haven’t always felt that way. God has had to show me in His word that I am loved just the way I am & that He made me the way I am on purpose for a purpose.
I have to stay in His Word & renew my mind with what He thinks about me. I need to keep my thoughts aligned with His thoughts or I fall back into the trap of feeling negatively about myself.
God has a plan that He uniquely created me for. I may not know what that plan is in its entirety. But I know He has a plan. Sometimes I know a little piece of it & sometimes I have no idea. But I trust He knows what He is doing.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
