Be YOU!

I was just reading this lovely blog post written by Holley Gerth and I think it is perfect for this month's theme of self worth. You can read the whole post here... When It's Hard to Be You. There are a few quotes I want to note from her post.

 "Yes, sometimes it’s hard to be you. But it’s always harder to try to be someone else." 


Have you ever tried to be someone else? I know I sure have had my moments when I wanted to portray myself as somebody different from who I really am. Often it was to impress new friends or mask insecurities. But the truth is, no one can change their innate personality, eventually it seeps through the cracks. But you know what, I think that is a good thing. Because...

 "You’re made in the image of God and your purpose is to mirror a part of who he is in a way only you can. When you try to be like someone else, you end up reflecting them instead of God."
...God made us to mirror a part of who he is. No two of us are the exactly the same. How crazy is that! Out of all of the billions and trillions times infinity of humans that God made, he NEVER made two exactly the same. Are you starting to see the bigger picture? The truth is that YOU are made to be EXACTLY who you are because ONLY YOU can mirror God the way that you do. 

"So whoever you are, be you today."
"Because Someone Who Loves You made you that way."
Be encouraged friends, YOU HAVE WORTH. 
YOU were made for a purpose.
