We are all significant in God’s eyes. It is the Lord God who has made us and not we ourselves. It’s a fact that sometimes we can forget that it is God who knits the embryo together in the womb and he is the mastermind behind human reproduction.
It may seem like a fairy tale to this generation when they look into the eyes of a newborn baby that it was God who created the first human from dust, and it was and will never be man-made. From the genesis of creation God made every human being – male and female.
There’s a phrase I like – “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Can I slip in here why I believe that suicide, euthanasia, abortion, homosexuality and such like are wrong? If neither we nor our forefathers had no input into the original miracle of life then it’s not within anyone’s authority to decide what sex they want to be or when they will end their lives or the lives of others.
Life is precious so we must choose to live it with great accountability as we never know which second will be our last.
Just to be able to see, to walk, to feed ourselves, to breathe, to hear or to have a sound mind – it’s a gift and not something we deserve because we are good or worthy, or healthy or worked hard for. Every human life is important whether you are old, young, handsome, cute, in prison, newborn, abused, crippled, famous or unknown.
Regardless of how you feel about your current situation – let no one despise you and you should not hate on yourself.
My AHA MOMENTS:
You will have to cross over many rivers to get to the other side of doubt and fear but refuse to feel inadequate.
The relationship you have with yourself is the same relationship you will have with others, and others will have with you. If you set no boundaries, then everyone can step in and out of your life leaving you feeling disrespected and abused.
Your voice echoes into your heart when your heart is void of love – watch your words and don’t commit hastily.
Talk to yourself the way you will talk to someone who wants to give up on life.
Your friends reveal who you are even if you are not watching them. Good friends come in quality NOT in quantity.
Don’t allow your mistakes to define you. They are part of life, learn from them and grow. They make great steppingstones.
When you look in the mirror what you see should motivate you to become a better person.
There are many ways to achieve a goal if you are committed to do the work.
Insecurity happens when you start comparing yourself with others. Believe in your journey and own it.
True confidence is when you know who you are, and you don’t need to prove it.
Finally, don’t make any decision on the advice of those who don’t have to live with the consequences. Every personal choice has personal consequences.
