You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. ~Psalm 139:13–14~
I’ve spent more time than I care to admit, thinking I wasn’t good enough, pretty enough, thin enough, or smart enough. I put myself down and beat myself up while comparing myself to others, looking at them and saying to myself, “I wish that I was more like them.” I spent money on self help books, reading other peoples words in hopes of finding my way to accepting myself for who I was while also trying to figure out my purpose. I spent so much time disowning how God created me while trying to fit into a mold I was never meant to fit in in the first place.
The truth is, God created me fearfully and wonderfully! Fearfully And Wonderfully!! He gave me my own gifts and talents. He has a very specific purpose for my life here on this planet. I need not be ashamed of who He made me to be. Instead I’m choosing to accept and celebrate the Linda He created! I AM NOT AND WILL NOT BE A SECOND SOMEONE ELSE..WHAT I AM IS THE FIRST AND ONLY ME!
