So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27
Let’s do this in honor of Invisible Illness Awareness Week. Soak this in today, as will I. You were made in His image. Every part of you (except for the sin) is intentional. You have no mistakes as part of your makeup! Yes, YOU, with all of your flaws, your struggle with your illness, your frustration with your disability, your battle with your pain… you are Christ to the world. You are important beyond what you can comprehend. God has plans for you, and they are great. You are not damaged, diminished, or irrelevant.
I challenge you to revel in your present condition today, instead of resenting it. I will be trying to do the same. This may be extraordinarily difficult, depending on what we are facing today, but God is willing and able to give us the grace and mercy to achieve it. Let’s see what He has in store for us when we approach our difficulties in this way. Oh, and please come back to leave a comment, or send me an email. I’d love to know how this challenge went for you and what God had to show you today.
Father, please move in us today as we do our best to reach for You with a new perspective. The fact that You made us in Your image is humbling, and we don’t want to let you down in that gift, no matter our circumstances. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
