30 Days of Praise and Thanksgiving: Day 3

Day 3: Intentionally Made

I am thankful that I am intentionally made in my Poppa’s image. I was meditating on this earlier today and began to think about how children look up to their parents and long to be like them. Genesis 1:27 tells us we were made in our Father’s image. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”~ Genesis 1:27 I can’t even tell you how many times I have prayed to the Lord about this heart of mine. Poppa, it’s too soft, it breaks so easily. Why Poppa, why? He told me it was because He had given me HIS heart. What greater gift than that. I often reflect on John 11:35, “Jesus wept.” Jesus knew before he got there Lazarus had passed. He already knew once He was there that He would be raised up, yet still He wept. He was very moved and He wept, just as I His daughter weeps so much in so many situations. Yes, my Poppa has given me His heart. What do you see when you look in the mirror? If you are not happy with the image looking back at you, look at it again through God’s eyes. My dear child, you were created in HIS image and there is a beauty there that no one else can even compare to. Oh and the gifts and traits that He wants to pass on to you… those should make you want to shout hallelujah! I don’t know about y’all, but I have my Poppa’s heart!!!! That’s worth every tear I’ve ever cried and every little prick I’ve felt to it. He gave it to me for a reason and I’m humbled to be His daughter. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“Jesus wept.” ~ John 11:35

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. ~ Ephesians 2:10
