“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27
Think about that. We are created in God’s own image. We were not created to be like anyone else, only in the image of the very God that created the universe! Do you ever pretend to be someone you’re not? Be confident in who you are, don’t try to be anyone else, because God created you in His image! He created you just the way you are!
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
We were made in the image of the Almighty God, and if we live in His light we have no reason to worry about anything. Instead of worrying, we have the opportunity to let go of our worries and give them up to God through prayer. This does not mean that life will be perfect, or that life won’t have struggles, but because of the love and life we have through Jesus Christ, we can let go of those struggles and give them to God.
