Inspirations for Christians - Hopeful and Meaningful and Positive!

 I See a Need for this Page because there is a Battle of the Image going on out there
in the End-Times and this is not getting easier for men and women and young people
especially, Christian or not.

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that we are all
made uniquely as individuals by a Wonderful Creator
AND
As His children, we can carry the Nature of Christ.
The world is out to stereo-type people in so many ways
- even some churches and ministries are -
we don't want this, do we?

"We are More than Conquerors through Christ who Loved us"

"Glory Jesus Glory, You do the fighting for me. Praise You, Jesus Praise You,
with You there's always Victory!"


So be yourself as His Child
in relating with Him and others
Be yourself as a Person
He created you to be
Be yourself in your Calling
you don't have to be a leader to be special
Be yourself with your Giftings
this is a path of discovery

YES, FIND YOUR OWN EXPRESSION IN LIFE
AND YOUR PURPOSE IN GOD

Peace To You And May Joy Be Yours

Be Yourself

The world would like to change you;
There are pressures all around.
You must decide just who you are,
Then firmly hold your ground.

You have an image of yourself,
An ideal sense of you;
And to this vision you must always
Struggle to be true.

You know what you are good at,
And you know where talents lie;
But if you're ruled by others,
Your uniqueness could pass by.

Remember, there is much to learn;
But all new things aren't good.
Wisdom lies in what we learned,
And what we have withstood.

So, be yourself and don't allow
The world to take control.
Preserving your identity,
Is life's most precious goal.

Self esteem
 
Why would you want to be someone that you are not?
When you could be better by being yourself.
Why pretend to walk in someone else’s shoes?
When you have something they haven’t got.
Just cheating yourself of the life you have to live
Deprives others of that only which you can give.
You have much more to offer by being just you.
Trying to live the life of another is a mistake.
It is a masquerade, nothing more than fake.”

Be You, For Me

Be free to be who I’ve called you to be.
Don’t try to be someone you think you should be.
As pansies each have a beauty all their own, 
Your life has a magnificence of its own.
You look at your failures and think,
Your life does not matter, or so you think! 
I look beyond your imperfections and see,
You, shining My glory for others to see.
So, bloom just how you have been created by Me. 
Being who I made you to be pleases Me.

“For we are God’s masterpiece.”  Eph. 2:10
