YOU ARE THE REAL PERSON OF YOURSELF. ©Unknown
Today in the society, many people are losing hope and faith in life as much as they lose confidence and self-esteem in themselves. People are already killing themselves, burying themselves, and forgetting themselves yet they are still alive and walking. This is all because many are living in a state of hopelessness and despair. They have forgotten that they are not photocopies of themselves rather they are originals of the purpose of God creating them. I want to address such people through this Sunday column and remind them that they should arise and shine for your day has come since the future is brighter for you. In case you harbor negative thoughts and feelings about yourself; thinking that you are useless, you are not important, you are a reject of life. I want to impress on you, plant a seed of hope in you and announce to you the good news about yourself. It doesn’t matter what others think about you. What matters is what you think about yourself; you are beautiful. You are loved. You are needed. You are precious. You are alive for a reason. You are stronger than what you think.
You are capable to go through your current situation. I am glad you are alive and that makes you part of the flowers that beautiful this garden called life. Therefore, stop beating yourself since you are not yet done and God is not finished with you yet. You are still God’s work in progress. God is still shaping you, crafting you, modeling you and grafting you so that you can become his masterpiece. Smile to yourself because you are amazingly beautiful and unique and nobody is like you whatsoever. Your life is like a camera, so focus only on what is important and capture only snapshots of Good times. Never allow negative thoughts or feelings drain you or your energy but focus on the fact that you are created in the image of God so you are original of yourself and duplicate of God. Drive on ahead taking care of the bumps on your way, pass over potholes on your route and meander the corners of your life with utmost care, determination and you will reach your destination with contented pride that “surely, you have overcome life triumphantly”
