Just as We Are
If you feel that because your breasts are small, you aren’t enough of a woman to this world,
Or because you lose your temper as often as you lose your keys, that you’ll be exactly like your dad,
Or because you are boring, no woman will want you,
Or because you can’t deliver at work, that you’re failing at life,
Remember that you are who you are, and your role is only to do the best with what you have been given. For God has in mind to use your weaknesses and failures, perhaps even more than your strengths, as his means to bring His new plans to earth. His mission is not to prove to the world how great you are, but how great he is by showing he can do powerful things through the most broken among us.
Have peace, my friend. You and I aren’t alone. Turn your trembling heart upward with me, for he looks down and is laying beautiful plans out in front of us like a kind, royal carpet into his kingdom.
