If we could all attain this hat a wonderful world it would be.
1 Peter 3:3
It is not fancy hair, gold jewellery, or fine
clothes that should make you beautiful.
” No, your beauty should come from
within you – the beauty of a gentle and
quiet spirit. This beauty will never disappear
and is worth MUCH MORE to GOD.
Nothing can buy inner beauty.It is there naturally.
Think of the time and money we have to expend to achieve outer beauty.
There could never be another You
There has never been, and will never be, another you.
That means that the bravest thing that you can do
is to be who you already are.
Because it’s safer to be like someone else. It’s easier to hide.
It’s simpler to say, “I”m not good enough”, and walk away.
But we need you friend.
We need your gifts.
We need your thoughts.
We need your smile.
When you are who you were created to be,
you become a mirror of the Heart of the One who created you.
The enemy of your soul will try to tell you to change who you are
because he would love to interfere with that reflection.
Say NO, my friend.
NO to comparing.
No to competing.
NO to copying.
Instead…. open your heart, spread out your wings,
lift up your head and live in divine confidence. You have much to offer.
You are a one- of- a -kind original.
No one can ever be better than you at being you.
Say YES ,my friend.
YES to boldness.
YES to beauty.
YES, to being who you were created to be.
Say “YES” with all of your heart for all of your life.
Speak it with everything you do and all that you become.
Because…. one of the very best ways to change the world
is by refusing to change who you were created to be.
