Hey Kings and Queens! :)
It's time for J's Good Morning Affirmation!
Great morning! Smile remember it looks amazing on you.
Congratulations you've made it to see another Monday! This actually means that you still have more work to do.. Aka Gods not finished with you yet.
Today let's talk about "Pride" and how our own voice or the opinions of others keep us from our real identity.
I used to really struggle in this area. Always was concerned about what others saw in me. Not realizing that everything about me was already perfect. (Genesis 1:26) God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness!
Anyway, I'd hide who I really was pretending to be something I wasn't. One day I was out shopping with my daughter.. trying on clothing that didn't fit.. and trying my best to find ways to hide some of my not so flattering parts! Smh, and she said, "Mommy, one day you won't have to paint a picture and cover up who you really are. Gods going to give you someone who's going to love all of you!"
I smiled and said I know Rai Rai. Now help me get these pants off please. We both lol.
Just like I was trying to fit into those pants.. i also used to try to fit in with people who were no good for me. I was living in a lot of Sin then. That sin cause me to hide the God in me too. (Remember when Adam and Eve hid from God and covered themselves?) They we're afraid of their own nakedness! (Genesis 3:8-10)
Omg.. I was so wrapped up in becoming who everyone wanted me to be that It had me lost and deeply blinded to who I actually was. I let the fake ness consume me until one day I realized that the enemy likes us to lose our identity so we don't know who we are. God wanted me to be naked and so that others could see His Glory manifest through me. (Psalms 139 came to mind.) I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I'm here for a reason!
Not believing that was an insult to God. Humility had to set in! Humility is when we except who Gods called us to be. Big or small. Thin or thick. Long hair or short hair. Educated Boss or not. Different is what I was. Here me clear.. Pride is when we think we are not good enough after God made us perfect. When we're wrapped up in it.. it hinders us!
I had to let go and let God have His way in my life. I definitely didn't want to hinder myself because of my own pride anymore. I encourage you to be bold and stand firm on who you are too!
Do you see yourself the way God see's you? Are you hiding who you really are for others? Are you ashamed of how God made you? Ask God to expose those areas to you so that you can be set free and just stand on His word and believe everything He has said about you. The truth will set you free.
I love you! Keep believing in yourself and be all that you can be. Have a great day.
