Be Yourself ~ January 19

Be Yourself

It’s your only real choice

For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he sees all his steps. Job 34:21

One of the hardest things to do is to accept who and what we are. In today’s world, it seems everyone wants to be like someone they’re not. It’s okay to want to improve our lot in life, and in some cases improving our appearance isn’t a bad idea. (You probably think I’m gonna mention my ears again, huh?)

The fact is, no matter how hard we try to be like someone else, we will always be who God created us to be. As time goes by, I am becoming more and more content with who and what I am.

We all want to be liked, and we want others to have a good opinion of us, but we often allow our perceived opinions of us to guide our actions, and we do what we think will make us look good in the eyes of those we think are watching us. I’ve come to the conclusion nobody’s watching.

But, God is. And when you get right down to it, His opinion is the only opinion that truly matters. And in case you don’t already know, He knows exactly who we are and what we are, and He loves us no matter what.

Be yourself! It’s your only real choice, and it’s a good one!
