It's so easy to find fault with ourselves. We tell ourselves we're too tall, short, fat, thin, old, young, shy, talkative. The list goes on and on. We can become our own worst enemies.
Here's a solution: Find a notebook or a piece of paper and write down three things that you love about youself. If you can't think of anything, ask a friend or family member to help you or ask God to show you the things He loves about you. Because you are His child, He understands and loves you perfectly.
Do this daily for a month. Then read your list whenever you are feeling discouraged or overwhelmed. As you read it, remember that you are beautifully and wonderfully made. God gave you unique gifts and talents so that you can glorify him. Today, rejoice in the Lord and be glad that you are created in His divine image.
