I am a weirdo. I embrace it. I love it. I admire myself for being my authentic, God-created-different-self and maybe that makes me even weirder. I am secure in my Maker which makes me secure in me. That has always made me weird. And even weirder is that my main spiritual gift is faith in God so I have a fearlessness (I only fear God) I rarely see in others and a sense of security I also rarely see. None of this is to brag but to show how weird I am.

People try to reassure me I am normal but the weirdness of me does not want to be normal. I am good with hoe God made me. I embrace it because I embrace Him. I am good with different. Moreso, I am a stranger and alien because of belonging to Christ and a resident of heaven. Also, I am very cool with weird and different. And I, though a girl, was born a leader. Also weird. Also embraced.

God deserves my thankfulness at how He made me more than He wants me to not want to be how He made me and try to be like other people He made to be different in some way. Conformity is a slap in His face, a shaking the fist at Him. No, I embrace weird. I am happy to be who God wants and made me to be. And I particularly love other peoples’ God-designed weird. Is good. It celebrates God’s creative greatness.😃❤️

Design Purpose of the Human Mind

Our human mind, designed by God different than any other of His creation, had a specific purpose. We had free will to learn and know God. That is the primary purpose of our mind… to know God. We can simultaneously feel close to His loving side and be humbled and worship His holy majestic side.❤

Praise and Worship is the Opposite of Murder

Really been thinking about murder lately. Heard a message today on Moody radio while driving to work and that pressed the issue.

Yes, of the 10 commandments, murder is one of those commandments we can usually breathe easy and feel confident and good that we kept it. But did we?

Jesus said that if you hate someone in your heart, you have already committed the crime. And it goes back to the fact 100% truth that God is in the business of heart, mind and motives. (This is why porn is so bad, by the way, already committed adultery when you engage in it, along with the idolatry and further marriage-breaking evil of it, but I digress.)

So, murder is really being extremely angry out of greed, jealousy, selfishness, pride, whatever. You are at that point saying that you are more important than who you are angry at, devaluing them and thus shaking a fist at God and His loving, purposeful design of another human being.

So I quite frankly had to ask for God’s forgiveness for murdering several people in my lifetime. And I would suggest searching your heart for such thoughts and repent of that line of thinking.

That all being said, the opposite of devaluing other people is praise and worship of God and encouraging other people. Telling God how great of a job He did creating people, His ultimate design; choosing to devote yourself to Him in appreciation; and encouraging other people to live up to their designed, beautiful potential from God are all ways to please God and live out His design. This is the opposite of putting one’s self above all of that in your mind.❤

God’s Fingerprints are All Over You

God lovingly designed you and His fingerprints are all over you. He made you exactly the way He wanted to for His delight. No one knows or loves you the way He does. And God never makes mistakes. He is perfect. So you are the product of His loving design. And He did not simply create you, He even provided a way for us to be eternally secure with God through Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins. What a beautiful thought. Oh how precious you are to Him!! I think you are pretty amazing too. 😄❤
