In His Own Image

Sometimes we look at other people and say, "Wow, I wish I was as pretty as them." or "She's so tall, why can't I be tall?"

We can be so self conscious. Wanting to be that tall, wanting to be "stylish", wanting to be that person.

We don't have to be like all those other people. We are unique. We are beautiful. We are created in God's image.

In the Bible it says, So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created Him; Male and Female He created them. (Genesis 1:27) God wanted us to be exactly the way we are right now.

We are all beautiful, we are all created with precision. Each freckle on our nose, each hair on our head, are made in His own image.

Next time you feel self conscious, know that you are unique and nobody could ever be exactly like you, even if you are a twin. Know that you are made in His image and his alone.
