Proverbs 31:31 (MSG) Give her everything she deserves.
I am guessing you read the above Scripture and bowed your head in shame.
Oh, no, not me. I don’t deserve anything.
But you do, sweet child of God. You so do.
If you have been reading along with Make Yourself Amazing, you will know you are an amazing creature, deserving of praise and accolades.
Yeah, I know, there are lots of haters out there, who want to pull you down and remind you of your failings. But not here. Not God. Not me. I will always tell you you are amazing. Because God says, and because you are.
So as we conclude Make Yourself Amazing month, let me leave you with what I believe about you, and hope you believe about yourself:
When you think back to your school days, can you remember the kid who seemed to be good at everything? The one who was good at every kind of sport, who excelled academically, and was also musical? Even though you wanted to hate him, you could not because he was so nice.
Now that person is you! You are the envy of all your friends because you are gracious, handle stress appropriately, excel at whatever you put your hand to, and you make it all look fun!
Celebrate life! When challenges come; persevere and stay true to your vision. What you see is temporary. Things will get better. On days when you don’t feel quite so amazing, hold tight to the promise and realization that you are. You’re amazing. You deserve the best of everything!
Proverbs 31, and consequently Make Yourself Amazing, crescendos at this point. Receive, accept, and embrace what you deserve: greatness, success, love, friendships, excellence, happiness, and all the magnificent things of life. This is your moment to shine. You are amazing, my friend, and an incredible life is what you deserve.
