Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

In this world, we are bombarded by the things that Satan wants us to believe; we need to look a certain way, act a certain way, dress a certain way, eat certain foods.  Sometimes we are even told how to live our lives. But, here it comes the big but, this is the way the world thinks and acts but does the world really know what their purpose is?  The answer is no, because they are always searching for something, and don't realize that what they are searching for is truth.  They are searching for God and the joy He brings into our lives, but instead, they keep buying things, living the way they are told to live, and just keep on searching.   How many of us as Christians feel lost and empty sometimes.  We as women can be overwhelmed by all the media and forget that as it says in Psalms 139:14 that we are wonderfully made by God.  We should not worry about how the world perceives our lives, the way we dress, which should be modest.  We must learn to love ourselves the way God loves us, to accept who we are, and not try to change our ways to the ways of the world.  Remember Romans 12:1-2?  We are not to conform to the world, but to live apart from all the sin.  The most important point I want to make is that we need to be content with ourselves, who we are, and what we look like.  God made us the way we are for a reason.  God never makes a mistake, so He did not make a mistake when He created you or me.  Many of us deal with the inferiority complex.  We feel we are not good enough, or pretty, or look good.  This is Satan talking, it's definitely not from God.  So please remember that we are all fearfully and wonderfully made. There is no need to compare ourselves to others, but to be comfortable with who we are.

 Psalm 119:4
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
