How to Become Super-You!

Well, we can cross Valentine's Day off the holiday list.

I hope that you felt some love :) If you didn't get a chance to read yesterday's post (and thus get the ultimate Valentine) do that right now! We'll wait....

Ok, you're back!

So let's talk about building up that self confidence of yours.
Did you know the Bible says in Luke 14:11, "If you're content to be simply yourself, you will become more than yourself." (The Message)

What that says is you've got to get your eyes off of everything around you and focus on being you, but not just that, focus on the "you" God wants you to be.

Isn't it so tiring trying to figure out what other people want, and being that person for them? Yes, yes it is. So stop! Stop caring what they'll think (which you'll never be able to fully know or control) and start loving the skin your in (like someone's commercial says).

I've been thinking a lot of about age lately. I think it's such a trap of the devil and so sad when people (mainly women) get panicky and afraid of growing older. You know what? You can't stop it, and everyone's going to do it. So what can you do? You can wear your age well. Your age doesn't make you, YOU make you and if you'll draw the heart of "you" (say the "o") from GOD then Oh Mama! The world better watch out!

Oh and another added bonus to being content with who you are? You become more than yourself. I have to be honest, I'm not entirely sure what that means, but it does sound like a super power so I'm more than willing to find out! (I am going to study up on that and let you know what I find out.)

From this moment on, let's focus on being content with who God made us to be. Give that care of what people think and why they think it and what they're going to do with it once they do, and who they'll tell and what they'll think when...give all of that over to God and start loving the skin He's put you in!
