  1. What a coincidence that lately I’ve thought about how I dishonor God by criticizing myself and focusing only my short comings. I am trying to deepen my relationship with God. I am making a conscious decision to read my Bible, and pray. And graciously remember I am a child of God, and God doesn’t make mistakes. Thank you for sharing this today.

  2. Becky – your journal entry is one I need to keep and read frequently. I struggle to see myself this way even though I know it’s true. Thanks for sharing this!

    • Lynne, I’m so glad this was timely and encouraging for you. Keep asking God to give you His eyes to see who you really are. He is faithful to do it!

  3. Becky, I love what you wrote in your journal, especially the part about being a royal warrior. It is a message many of us need to take to heart. I want to put this where I can re-read it daily! Thank you!

  4. This article perfectly describes me, and is helping to shift my thinking into how God sees me.
    Thank You for addressing this , it opens up a whole new path of thinking. I know I am a work in progress.

  5. ….just printed out what you wrote in your journal and sending it to my daughter, my granddaughters and any sister God asks me to send it to!
    Thank you Becky

  6. I had to be told by our last Salvation Army Officer I was Daughter of the king. I wouldn’t have many friends. The friends I have I hardly ever see. The two sisters saved live 86 miles away from me. They are so good to me. They one sister on behalf of both of them keep in touch with me. Asking how I am. They know I suffer morning seizures now and then not that often without anything warring. So as they can pray for me. They use to live not far from me when Parents alive. My other Friend she busy. I see not that often. But I love the way they care for me. Like Jesus does and for us all like the kids song I think is so true for all of us. That I was taught at Sunday School when a child. It is “Jesus Loves all the Children Of The World Red And Yellow Black And White” how true that is. Love today’s reading Becky. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little Enniskillen Co.Fermanagh xx

  7. Becky,

    Such needed words. Society tries to tell us how we should look & act. God sees us as a beloved daughter. I’ve heard that since we were made in image of God when you criticize yourself in any way you are calling Jesus the same thing. He calls us beautiful. We may not always feel pretty, but take a look deep in your heart & see what Jesus sees. Thank you for a great thought provoking post!

    Blessings 🙂

  8. I agree with what you have said , but I think god also entrusts us with taking care of the precious life, body, he has given us.
