Smile, You Are Loved!

YOU"RE WORTH A LOT TO GOD!!! I hope this will help somebody.

Does the thought ever sweep over you that you are not very important? Perhaps you feel that if you were to disappear off the face of the earth, no one would really miss you. Sometines I do, really.

Now, everyone has their bad days, But there are many people, and you may be one of them, who are sincerely convinced of their lack of value. Perhaps you feel that you are not as attractive as your friends. You may have a skin problem, or a weight problem, It could be that you are too shy to make friends easily, or that you feel you just don’t have what it takes to converse well with people. It is easy to focus on what you perceive as your limitations and to get the feeling that you are just no good.

What is the answer to all of this? The fact is, there is probably some truth in your personal assessment of yourself. True, when you are feeling down, you tend to exaggerate the negative and overlook the positive. No doubt, you fare as well as many others do in some respects and perhaps even excel in certain areas.
So what you need is to get a new perspective on value. Instead of evaluating how man looks at you, consider this: How does God look at you? Do you suppose that God loves the handsome, but rejects the plain? Does God love the talented few while having no interest in the ordinary majority? Does God favor the bright and energetic over the average and weak? Of course not!

And that, my friend, is precisely the reason you should not demean yourself. In God’s sight, you are of great worth. Since God chose to create you, in His sight you are of great value. God knows all about you. He created you with your special combination of skills, personality traits, appearance, strengths, and weaknesses. Do you know why? For His purposes and for His glory. God has a job for you to do, just the way you are. As you accept this and endeavor to do the best you can for Him, external factors will cease to concern you.God loves you just the way He made you...... the way you are!

SO GIVE THE WORLD A SMILE!!

The secret of my happiness and sucess is God. Because, I don't look at myself through the eyes of others, but through the eyes of God. And once I receive from His throne of grace first thing in the morning, I am fine.

I actually don't look in the mirror before my early morning devotion, because I prefer to look at the face of God first and see myself in the reflection of the shining white light of His awesome countenance. Then I look at myself in the mirror and thank God for I am made in the beautiful and wonderful image and likeness of God.

God bless.
