Here we are again at Five Minute Friday. Free-writing for five minutes on one word. I struggled with this week’s word. Not sure why, but once it “came” to me, the rest flowed. We gather at Kate Motaung’s place to share and encourage. I invite you to stop over and see for yourself all that’s going on there.
Why not try this exercise yourself?? Write without concern of grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. for five minutes. Even if you don’t have a blog, try it on a scratch piece of paper or in the comments section below. It’s great fun!
This week’s word:
Those who you do life with already know just how special you are.
I mean, really, oftentimes others see the good in ourselves more than we do. We tend to see our flaws, our failures, our weaknesses. Am I right?
But God… He sees who He created us to be. And what He creates is nothing short of extraordinary.
Today I desire for you to see how very extraordinary you are.
God created you as a work of art. On the blank canvas of your life He created a beautiful masterpiece, full of amazing colors, designs, textures, and weaves. He took His time on you, not rushing through a single splendid detail. He blessed you with gifts and talents that only you possess. He made you one of a kind. No one is like you. No one. And He left a God-shaped spot in your heart just for Him to occupy.
You are a gem, a jewel, a treasure. Amazingly talented. Strikingly beautiful. Incredibly handsome. Astonishingly kind. Created perfect in every way.
Some search for a priceless treasure all of their lives, but friend, you are already it.
You are the find of all finds.
Yes, you most certainly are.
And just in case you don’t want to take my word for it, take God’s. Below is who God says you are. (Taken from a previous post.)
You are chosen, holy and dearly loved. (Colossians 3:12)

You are favored and honored. (Psalm 84:11)
You are blessed. (Deuteronomy 16:15)

See… you are more than you think you are. Choose one of the above, and remind yourself all day who you are. You are pretty incredible.
You are quite the find!
But God knew that all along.
May He bless you and encourage your heart this day.
