choices, what do they tell us?

6 May

Of course I can’t speak for you – I can only tell you what my choices have revealed to me about myself.

As I reflect on the choices I have made throughout my life, I can see how many times I have sold myself short, primarily because I didn’t see myself as God does. My choice of relationships was just one indicator (among many) of someone who didn’t see her own worth.

As I observed trends in my life, I decided my choices needed to shift. I understood that my lack of self worth was the lens I used to make many choices. I spent many years fighting to overcome the whole “I wish I was shorter, I wish I was taller, I wish I had straight hair, I wish mine was curly, etc., etc.,” syndrome that many women experience. I finally settled into my own skin.  I finally learned to love the skin I am in.

One of my favorite scriptures can be found in Psalms 139: 14 (KJV) I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous [are] thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well. I love this scripture because it reminds me of my value, not in comparison to other women or media images, but in relationship to the great care God took to create me … and you.

I am writing to you from my heart this morning. It is important to me that every woman and every young girl understands and acknowledges her “own” worth. We are all “fearfully and wonderfully made.” We all have something awesome to offer this world and valuing ourselves is one giant step towards living purpose filled lives.

As I move forward in life, I am determined to make choices that reflect my confidence in God, and myself.

What do your choices tell you about you?

    Choices, what do they tell us? Great question for an awsome answer. The honorable Bishop Norman L. Wagner now gone home to meet the Lord use to tell us here at Calvary Ministries International Youngstown Ohio, that “Your choices of today will have its consequences on tomorrow.” Knowing this dear saints and friends should let us all know that before making any choice,seek Gods wisdom and guidance and consult with someone you trust who is wise and successful in making good choices themselves. Good Godly choices always bring peace, balance, joy and blessings. Making the right choice will always be better when one does it according to the scriptures. In a multitude of councelors their is safety. Proverbs is the book of wisdom. Study it and it will bring joy and understanding while aiding you in making both good and right choices. Love you all Sis. Candy.

    The choices me make often reflects who we are…what we believe. At least, some see it that way. I know better! Some of the choices I made in life were also as a result of me not seeing myself as GOD sees me. My choices were not reflective of the true me.

      Very insightful – the true me, the person God created me to be. Seeing myself as God sees me is a goal I am working towards every day. It is my deep desire to live my life according to His plans for me.
