Three reasons you should like yourself

in steemchurch •  last year

1. God likes you.

Of course, He does. He made you and He did a good job. Sometimes He gets so excited over you He starts to sing!

... He will take delight in you with gladness. ... He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
Zep 3:17 NLT

2. There is no one else like you.

Your thumbprint. Your iris. Your DNA. Your voice. Your unique sense of humour. There is no one else like you.

You are not a by-product or the result of a mindless, automated process. Your Creator spent time and energy in creating you.

3. You made you.

You have spent many years (how old are you?) making choices that have shaped who you are today. Some of those choices may be debatable but they are YOUR choices. If anyone should like them, it is you!

And guess what: YOU are not done! Tomorrow you will make more choices. And become more of who you want to be.

What do you like the most about you? Leave me a comment describing that trait.

Or if you do not know, what does your family/spouse/best friend like the most about you? Leave that in a comment. But please spend some time finding the answer to the first question asap.

Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
Mat 22:37-40 NLT

I look forward to your comments. Even if you disagree.

It's quite hard to elaborate about what I like about my self. I usually take that from people I know. However, I'd like to participate in your discussion here with humility 🤗
I coulden't imagine how and where my life would be right now if it is without God. He definitely made this life worthy through Jesus Christ and if there is one thing I most like about my self, that is I love doing stuff that could greatly contribute to His kingdom.
I am kind of positive person that aspire to make a change in every single life who feel down and lost.
Thank you for this @reonlouw! Got you from Kryptonia sir (@wilsonblue5)

It is so true that God loves us all. He gave us freewill to choose our own ways and that made us unique with anyone! Upvoted and commented by rubelynmacion of krypto

I think we want to do the second one, but we should do the first. The latter leads to a downward spiral and it does not matter who started. The end is bad.

I like finding answers. My Kryptonia account is @ianstevenson

Awesome! My brother is like that too.

great article( iulianpatache)

I think it's best to focus on our strengths, accept our weaknesses, forgive all, and try to improve everything. There's no one like you, and there is no one like me! Thanks, a great message. Upvoted and re-steemed courtesy of Jerry32 from kryptonai.

Thank you @sanitizemylife. Improving everything may be a challenge for me...

First of all so much thankful that God created me and given the chance to live this wonderful place with my happy family. Second, in all my ups and downs God is always my protector.

Yes! Be yourself. It is who God made you to be.

We are all created originals. Let's not die as copies!

Thank you @january22secret

I wonder what your secret is?

Am sure God loves us all....so there is no reason to dislike ur self.....@alexmalone on kryptonia

·

Oi, @alexmalone. Most of are able to list many reasons NOT to like ourselves. And struggle to focus on the many reasons to actually like ourselves. As a result, we then struggle to believe that others, including God, are able to like us. This can be the result of many different things and you should count yourself lucky that you do not suffer from this particular human ailment.

great article. kryptonia: bojak_cates

This is a wonderful reminder to us.
It brings back confidence to someone.
Great post.
Thank you for this. @reonlouw

·

Thank you @mirajaja. That is very positive feedback. Appreciated.

This is such a great post sir @reonlouw, thank you for this encouragement!
What I like about myself is that I speak out the truth even when I know I'll be standing alone. I am a very vocal and opinionated person, I am very frank and honest haha

·

I thought you would like it, as we say similar things. :-)

I trust that you will always be vocal, opinionated, frank and honest. And that you will always stand for truth. But I hope you will never have to stand alone, even though you are willing to. I hope that there will always be people around you, standing with you!
