Made by The Lord

How do we handle a hand crafted blanket our grandma made ? We use it and appreciate it. We remember the love that went into the blanket. We take care of it and treat it delicately.

How to we feel when someone who loves us, makes us a meal? We admire the meal before we eat it then savor every bite.

When someone makes something for you don’t you treat that gift with special care ?

We are God’s handiwork.

God made the sunrise and we can’t deny it’s glorious transcendent beauty. But then we look at our reflection and think “eww how can anyone love that?” This is because our minds are filled with comparisons and society’s ideal.

You are beautifully and wonderfully made. You are a child of A God who loves you.

We need to treat ourselves like we are created by God. Look in the mirror and repeat this ,

“I praise you (God) because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Psalm 139:14
