“See what kind of love the father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are… Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.”
– 1 John 3:1-2 (ESV)

Remember when you feel down, unloved, and worthless; not good enough for people’s standards – whether it be peers or family – your Father in heaven is looking down on you with pride and indescribable love. You are perfect the way you are, don’t let people change you because you don’t match society’s contorted and twisted ways and standards. You are you, and no one else; “Just be yourself, everyone else is taken,” (Unknown). When you don’t feel like you can’t please or make your parents proud enough, do remember they love you, dearly, if you need extra comfort, God is there for you; he’s ready to take you and hold you in his arms, hear what you have to say, and to smother your tears with love and joy.

We are all children of God. One day all this pain, the feeling of unwantedness, and hurt will all be gone. For one day we will join God in heaven either when our days are up on earth or when Jesus returns to claim what is his and create a new earth and heaven.

“You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Psalm 139:13-14  (NIV)

Ever get that insanely happy feeling when you create something you feel worthy enough to be hung on your bedroom wall? Or the wall in the living room? I know I have. Well, when God made you, he was more than “insanely happy” he was beyond that. You are created in his image; no one else’s. His image; perfect; without blemish. Doesn’t that just fill you with happiness and love?! God knows you better than you know yourself (creepy, yet cool, right?) and he, as your creator and heavenly Father is with you were ever and whenever, even when you don’t want him.

We are told to praise and worship him. Why? Says right there in the verse: “because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful.” His works are wonderful in all ways. There’s no doubt about that, and if you do doubt, I suggest you talk to a close friend who’s strong in the faith. 🙂

Always have confidence in who you are and your faith, for it’s the strongest thing out there. And remember: Your heavenly Father, loves you, no matter what.

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

Romans 8:37 (NIV)
