“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
“My darling daughter, I want you to love who I have created you to be. Accept the experiences I have allowed you to go through and where I brought you out from. Do not compare your experiences and life to anyone else. Without these experiences you would have no testimony of My will and love for you. You would not be able to do what I have called you to do. I know that some of your days were hard, but I was with you in every moment. I did not allow you to be crushed by the enemy. And I never will. Trust that you are who you are for a reason. My reason. Created with a purpose that is definite, true, and unique to you. Beware of those who doubt you. Those people do not have My vision or knowledge for your life. Do not let them make you feel worthless or wrong. Their opinion and determination for your life has nothing to do with the calling I have placed on you because I created you, not them. They have no idea what your calling is. But you know, because I have told you. Therefore, go forward knowing that you are purposefully and wonderfully made just as you are. Realize that any limitations you may have are just opportunities for you to allow me to fill you up. Let no man deter you. Let no man tell you that because you don’t have this or that, that you are not good enough. What they won’t tell you is that they are also lacking some things. Instead smile and nod at them knowing in your heart that they are lacking my vision, the very vision I have given you. With my love and grace, accept yourself. Love yourself. All of yourself. Even the parts you would rather forget. Allow me to heal them. And when you are full of My love, give that love to others. I fill you up with My love so you can pour it out into the world and be a blessing to My people.”
Prayer: Father, I thank You for redemption. I thank You for knowing me by name and loving my light and also my brokenness. Help me stand tall in who You have created me to be as I walk purposefully on this Earth as a daughter of the King. Thank You for calling me to You and for the vision You have given me. In Jesus name, Amen.
