A quick pick me up to feeling great!
We all have those bad days when we don’t feel confident about ourselves, that we’re not good enough, or when life just seems to suck. Sometimes Satan tries to put thoughts in your head and tells you that you’re not pretty and other hurtful things that goes against God. You can use these daily notes to help you when you’re down- all you have to do is open the jar and they’re there for you. 🙂
This little tip will help lift your spirits so you can remember that you are special, and you are God’s perfect child.
Use a pretty jar, you can buy one or maybe decorate one with rhinestones, and keep it on your desk at home. Tear out little strips of paper, and on each one, write at least 15 characteristics you like about yourself. I know you might be thinking, “but I don’t have that many.” YES you do! You just need to step outside yourself for a minute. What does your best friend say about you? Your mom? Here are some ideas to get started: You are loving, you are musical, you are intelligent, you have a beautiful spirit, you are generous, you have an appreciation for others, you are passionate, you are driven, you are creative, you are athletic, you are talented, you are funny, you are a woman of God!
After you create at least 15 of these inner characteristics, you can add things you like about your outward appearance, such as you have beautiful hair, you have nice skin, you have a sparkling smile, whatever you like. But the goal is to appreciate your spirit, and not your appearance. Know what I mean?
Also, you can add quotes you like about life, from funny to passionate quotes about reaching for your goals. Also, I included about 10 scriptures that remind me I’m special in the eyes of God. Here are a few to help you out if you need:
The Lord doesn’t see things the way people see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
I am your creator. You were in my care before you were born. Isiah 44:2
He is a God who is passionate about a relationship with you. Exodus 34:14
For you are a holy people, who belong to the LORD your God. Of all the people on earth, God has chosen you to be his own special treasure. Deuteronomy 7:6
If you spend time wishing you were different, you’ll never get around to doing those special things God wants you to do.
You are so special. 🙂
