“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
Psalms 139:14 KJV
Psalm 139:14 is one of my favorite scriptures but yet the hardest one to believe. In this society, we are bombarded with images portrayed on social media and standards set by shallow ideologies. When did we ever come to a point that what God says about us is obsolete? Did He say we are worthy? Did He say we are precious in His eyes? Did He say we are made in His image? God validated us before we entered this world so the question still stands: “What’s wrong with You?”
What’s wrong with your style?
What’s wrong with your concepts and ideas?
What’s wrong with the college you chose?
What’s wrong with your likes and dislikes?
What’s wrong with your talents and abilities?
For years, I questioned myself (not for the purpose of self evaluate), but because I feared people. Fear of what they thought, fear of what they said, and fear of how they look at me. I suppressed who I was just to please someone and truthfully I regret it. Now, I want to choose to be me. I am a rare species..(if I can say it like that lol). I think differently about certain issues that conflicts with the norm. I love to give to people and don’t expect nothing from them. I love superheroes and action movies but despise romance movies….(I’m a “get to the point” person not the long drawn out version lol.) I am not much of a phone person but rather have face to face conversations. Yes, I am a Jesus freak because He loves all of me..the good, bad, and ugly. Just because I am a Christian does not mean I am not free to talk on certain topics…do you read the Bible(full of people with problems but God knows how to tie it all together ☺️) Hey I am not your typical girl but what’s wrong with that?
One thing I want you to be clear on is that I’m not excusing bad habits because we do need to cleanse ourselves of bad habits and ungodly ways. I also must learn to love myself and be patient with my growth. God made each individual person unique. Psalm 139:14 to me means that God took time out to strategically craft who I am so it can fit the talents I have, the opportunities He’s going to bless me with, and basically assign me with a purposeful life that coincides with what He made me to be. God cares about our difference! (When you get a chance, check out the YouTube video “Difference” by Dr. Matthew Stevenson. It will change your life.)
Comparison and jealousy always try to work against God’s purpose. They cause us to be unappreciated of the effort God put forth into making us. Honestly it’s an insult to God. Not one time did God create anything without purpose. Everything has a purpose and nothing is accidental. My prayer is that I want to be Me, the person God made. You will get tired of the comparison and the competing because you will only feel satisfied when You do You. Yes there are people out there that can write better than me, smarter than me, and so on. One thing they can’t beat me at is being ShuCora because only ShuCora can do that.
Take time out today to just love you. There’s nothing wrong with you.
Accept who God made you to be and rock it!
