Someone once said to me:
I learned in my life, that when I was in certain positions,
I didn't need to prove anything. I was already there.
And this struck me.
And got me thinking.
Where was it that I found myself not quite owning?
Not quite sure.
Feeling the need to prove.
Prove my value.
Prove my worth.
And just as this person reminded me, I remind you:
You have no need to prove.
No need to prove anything.
God already chose you.
God already declared you righteous and holy.
God already declared you beautiful and lovely in His sight.
God has placed you, right where you are.
For this time.
For this season.
For His reasons.
You have what it takes.
You have what it takes to be who you are.
A beloved child of God.
Resting in Him.
You are chosen.
Walk in it.
You are...chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God's instruments to do His work and speak out for Him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference He made for you - from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted. 1 Peter 2:9-10 MSG
I've loved you the way My Father has loved Me. Make yourselves at home in My love. from John 15:9-10 MSG
