I have been taught that I will never rise above what I "think" of myself (my self image). I often envision myself doing something of eternal value (most meaningful). If I want to change my life and how I see myself, I have to change my thinking (my focus). I know that I can do anything God calls me to do (He says He always gives me the power to do what He commands in His Word). I know how God sees me and I should see myself the same. I have to get my thinking off of negative junk and lies and onto the Lord and His promises and truth. "As he thinks in his heart, so is he" (Proverbs 23.7). God created me and He loves what He's created. I am beautiful in His eyes! (Psalm 45:11 and Song of Solomon 4:7). God has worked supernaturally in my life in so many areas and I am humbly grateful. Today (Christmas Eve Eve) I am reflecting on God's love for me. Thank the Lord that I can be confident in Him since I was created in HIS image.
