Celebrating who God created you to be is underrated and so under appreciated. Life’s imbalances are off-putting sometimes either thinking too much of ourselves, or too little. We are God’s workmanship, created in the image of Christ, unto good works, (Ephesians 2:10). That means through the fullness of the power of Christ, we are his before thought, not after-thought, and have inherited his immeasurable riches of grace and kindness toward us simple because he loves us.
“I know the plans I have in mind for you, declares the Lord; they are plans for peace, not disaster, to give you a future filled with hope.” — Jeremiah 29:11
To celebrate something, you take the occasion away from the everyday order of business and festivalize the the occasion and the person. When we see ourselves the way that God sees us, the purpose becomes more vivid, and the path clearer.
When you think of a celebration, think of yourself, see your picture, your life, your purpose, and be less performance minded, and more open to understanding that the true nature of your existence rest with who created you, and not your mistakes or life mishaps. See yourself like Christ sees you, the true celebration of his Love, and then conquer anything and everything that dares to impale you.
Celebrate you today, not tomorrow, it’s the enemy of the devalued self-image that has hindered the refreshing of your soul that only comes when you celebrate your life, and see yourself as Christ sees you, and not the frail picture that you see in the mirror of chance.
Because of what Christ has done we have become gifts…God…delights in’ (Ephesians 1:11). Zephaniah writes, ‘He celebrates and sings because of you, and he will refresh your life with his love. The Psalmist said, ‘You…put me together inside my mother’s body, and I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me. Everything you do is marvelous!’ (Psalm 139:13-14)
Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said, ‘What you picture in your mind, your mind will go to work to accomplish. When you change your pictures, you automatically change your performance.
