Scripture and a Snapshot

Believe in Yourself

I have been wanting to do this post for a while… I had the pictures…
but just hadnt made the time.
Well this morning, while watching Joel Osteen, he said,
God has chosen each of us to be GREAT, to share and do
things with the world that are in our hearts
and even when we miss the opportunity … God
ALWAYS
brings another opportunity to us…
Especially when he knows and believes in us…
and the promise in our hearts….
Sometimes the world cannot see whats in our hearts…. its hidden by our exterior…
But if I say, “I will not mention his word    or speak anymore in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire,    a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in;    indeed, I cannot.
Jeremiah 20:9
Sometimes the forces in our hearts are telling us GO FOR IT… but then
things happen… or dont happen… and we hole up in our shell
a little longer… We get scared…
We get disappointed…
But the ideas are still there…
the love is still in there ….
somewhere…
We have to remember as Joel Osteen said,
“The forces that are for us are GREATER than the forces against us”
But the Lord said to Samuel,
“Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature,
because I have rejected him.
For the Lord sees not as man sees:
man looks on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looks on the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7
We have to be willing and ready to hold the beauty and greatness God has placed
within our souls… He sees it … He knows it is there…
We have to be willing to let it shine through….
I praise you,
for I am fearfully
 and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
Psalm 139:14
God knows our hearts better than anyone else.
He created us.
He knows what lies ahead.
If we can rise above the forces that are constantly pushing us down
telling us things like
“You are not good enough”
“You are ugly”
“You cannot amount to anything”
“You are making the wrong decisions”
and
start hearing what God is telling us,
YOU ARE WORTH IT 
 
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
 
YOU HAVE GREATNESS INSIDE OF YOU 
EVERY DECISION YOU MAKE whether right or wrong,
LEADS YOU to where I WANT YOU,
and WHERE YOU BELONG
Believe it… and OWN it…
and TRUST IN GOD…
Because one day,
that beauty and greatness will shine on the outside …
You are altogether beautiful,
my love;
there is no flaw in you.
Song of Solomon 4:7
