What Does That Make Me?

While I was on our mission trip, we would have worship every morning and night. There would be music and prayer. One song we sang was Everything Glorious, by David Crowder. This song has been stuck in my head ever since mission trip! Haha which, I'm not complaining. It's a good song! :)

There is one part in the song where he is singing to God and says "You make everything glorious and I am yours. What does that make me?"

It really got me thinking. In the creation story God made the earth and the trees and everything and He said it was good but when He made man and woman He said it was very good. A lot of times it is easy to get caught up in what we think are flaws and what other people tell us are flaws. Good doesn't make mistakes! He made you exactly how He wanted you to be.

My youth minister described it as Good walking around a room with file cabinets labeled hair color, height, eye color, skin tone, personality, etc. and God would go to each drawer and piece by piece design us in His image and when He is done he will smile and say "my child, you are very good."

I know that when you are being made fun of it is a lot harder to remember that. Believe me, I know. As Bob and Larry would say "God made you special and He loves you very much!" (VeggieTales) Whenever someone says something that is hurtful or points out something they consider to be a flaw, remember that God made you exactly how He wanted you to be. Think of good things. Things that make you feel good about yourself. For me, I love my eyes, I think they're really pretty. So when someone says they don't like the way I look, I remember that God blessed me with pretty eyes. Sounds silly, but it helps to me go on. Remember to thank God for everything, even your flaws.

Good bless you :) thank you for reading
