Yahweh-Jehovah-El Shaddai- Jehovah Jireh-King of Kings and Lord of Lords
He is my everything-He my is all in All! Who could ask for more?
When I was in grade school, my Mom found out that I need glasses. So we went to the optometrist and I was fitted for glasses. Unfortunately, my Mom forgot to tell my teacher that I needed glasses to see the chalk board. And I being the independent child that I was, wouldn’t dare wear glasses to school. So that year at school, I got behind on my school work because I couldn’t see the assignment on the board. My grades dropped and my self confidence eroded. Third grade was pretty rough on this student.
During middle school, things didn’t get better. The teachers were always sending home notes that I couldn’t sit still in my desk and I liked to talk and sing a lot while others were doing their work.(back then we didn’t have a name for it-attention deficit disorder) My teachers would always ask, why I wasn’t as smart as my Sisters. Again my self confidence eroded even more. I felt like a loser. My parents always had me on restriction because of my grades. High School was the same. My grades hovered at the bottom of the register. Even my grandmother told me that I was going to be a ditch digger if I didn’t study harder.
Then Senior year came and I was hoping to graduate. My class schedule was not too hard that year. Senior Math, English, Composition, World History and Psychology. I was hoping for a “C” just to get out of school. Then it happened…I met my Composition Teacher, Belle Morehead. She was young and full of life when she taught. Nothing like I had ever seen in my years of school. She challenged and inspired me to work hard and do more. One day she told me that my essay was excellent. And one day I would make a great writer. I just needed to practice. I couldn’t believe that she was talking about me. I felt like the character of the Grinch. That day my heart swelled 10 times bigger. My confidence exploded and I became someone. She spoke life over me. She told me that I was good enough. And even though all the others had told me that I wouldn’t make it in life. She told that I could. Sometimes that is all it takes to give a person the encouragement that they need.
No matter what you have done or where you have been-You are Enough! God has fearfully and wonderfully made you just the way you are. Made in his image, with his beauty and his splendor. What more could you ask for? Your life is ordained and designed to worship him. His footsteps are easy to follow and his voice is calling you today. You are worthy! You are enough!
Yes! You are a somebody in His Kingdom. Don’t ever let someone say that you aren’t. Today chose Life-chose Christ and watch how your life can soar!
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
