How can we focus more on Christ?
Know your Design. This is my favorite topic!
Each one of us is a uniquely designed creation by God himself put on this Earth as a gift. God is our perfect Father. We are His children. He loves us more than any human can love one another.
This is my favorite topic because there were so many years of my life wondering who I was. I knew I was a child of God, but I didn’t take the time to understand what that meant. I listened to what the world said I should be instead of listening to who God created me to be. I thought the things I could accomplish made me who I was or acceptance from others was what made me. I thought maybe there was something wrong if I didn’t think the same, dress the same, or want the same things as others.
I spent my 20’s and 30’s trying to fit the mold that the world tells us to be. I failed to spend time in the Word and hear exactly what my Father, my Creator says about me.
Here’s the thing. You and me were created on purpose for a purpose. Our strengths and weaknesses are part of His design. Those weaknesses we don’t like where given to us so that we would need God. God wants us to love His creation and give Him credit and glory for creating such a beautiful thing.
So how can we focus more on Christ? Stop obsessing about parts of our body that the world calls “flawed.” Stop trying to change the parts of us that are beautiful in God’s eyes. Stop trying to be somebody else. What God created is good! We are good!
Let’s thank Him for giving us life!
