if you live for the approval of others, you will die by their rejection
– Rick Warren
The little one likes to praise himself. He often tells himself “good boy”, “yay” and he claps for himself. He celebrates his accomplishments even when we, his parents are not available to celebrate.
As we begin a new month, I would like to encourage you to take a moment and reflect on your awesomeness. Think about your unique gifts, the way you impact the world around you, and celebrate yourself. It would bring you to a place of gratitude to God, help you see your potential and get rid of comparison.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalms 139:14
I love that the psalmist said that he will praise God because of what he sees about himself- fearfully and wonderfully made. When we talk negatively about ourselves, we deny ourselves the opportunity to give God praise. Until we see ourselves as wonderful, we will not manifest our wonderful nature.
Have a blessed month my wonderful friends! Stay safe.
