Wonderfully Made

There are days when it seems that negative words and thoughts hit unexpectedly. When this happens, we have a choice to make. Do we allow the words and thoughts to affect and direct our attitude and mood or do we counter the negativity by replacing the words and thoughts with scripture? We can hold on to God’s Words to protect our minds and hearts. In scripture, God says of us:

“My child, I have created every intricate and delicate part of you; you are fearfully and wonderfully made.”
“You were created in MY image.”
“You are my treasured possession.”
“I know your thoughts, your motives.”
“I knew you before you were born; I formed you in your mother’s womb; I have wonderful plans for your life.”
“I have called you and set you apart to be MY child. I call you “MINE”.
“Your true beauty is within your heart.” This week, I have been working to replace negative words and thoughts with God’s truth and when I do, my spirit has been immediately calmed. God continues to teach me that my significance – my value – my motives, purpose and plans, are to be wrapped up in Him. HE is the only one who sees the true me. His thoughts of me are many and He delights in me. So, if the God of the universe sees my true potential and continually draws me to Himself so that I will achieve that potential, is there anyone else that I truly need to try to please?

How about you? Have you searched scriptures to get a greater understanding of your value and significance to your Father in Heaven? It is of immeasurable value to understand how God sees you so that you can see your worth from HIS view of you and not the view of those around you.

He searches my heart and HE prays for me.
“And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.” Romans 8:27

Blessings this day!

Our Mission Statement: Our desire is to instill the love of Christ in the hearts of women by teaching God's Word, encouraging a deeper relationship with Christ and sharing our faith, so that their lives reflect the love of God to a darkened world.

Our Desire: Our deepest desire is for the hearts of women to be stirred by the Holy Spirit, prompting a longing to intimately know Jesus and pursue a deeper level of knowing God. The result of a responsive heart is a woman whose life shines so brightly for God that others will be drawn to Him through her. Faith is not private and personal, but rather, scripture tells us that our faith journey is something we share and learn from one another. Dragonfly Ministries facilitates events whereby women have opportunity for personal growth through both time alone with God, and time spent with other women.
