Well, this blog is just going to be a collage of all things that inspire me and capture my attention as I walk through my everyday life: pictures, music, quotes, art, song lyrics, videos, bible verses, parody of songs, etc.

Enjoying Who God Created You to Be by Joyce Meyer
Start believing today that you are a rare, one-of-a-kind, valuable and precious woman. To help you learn how to be successful at being yourself, I want to give you some easy-to-follow suggestions:
Speak good things about yourself. Declare what God’s Word says about you. For example, say to yourself, “I am the righteousness of God in Christ. I am made acceptable in the Beloved. God formed me with His own hand, He loves me, and God doesn’t make mistakes.”
Avoid comparing yourself with other women. God must love variety, or all of us wouldn’t look so different. He has created each of us differently right down to our fingertips. We can look to certain people as good examples to follow, but even then, good traits if duplicated will manifest differently through our individual personalities.
Focus on your potential instead of your limitations. Refuse to concentrate on your weaknesses except in an effort to turn them into strengths. Keep your flaws in perspective. People with a high level of confidence have just as many weaknesses as those without confidence, but they focus on their strengths instead of their weaknesses.
Learn to cope with criticism. If you dare to be different, you’ll have to expect some criticism. Going along with the crowd when you know in your heart that God is leading you in a different direction is one of the reasons women don’t succeed at being themselves. You won’t be comfortable in your own skin if you go against your own convictions.
You are a woman who is perfected and complete in Him. When you start to believe that, you will no longer feel that you are lacking anything or that there is anything wrong with you.
Remember this: God will never anoint you to be anyone other than yourself. Let now be your time to go forward and be set free from the torments of comparing yourself with others and trying to be someone you’re not. God is proud of who He made you to be!

WILL YOU PLEASE STOP TAKING THIS VERSE OUT OF CONTEXT?!The writer uses the pronoun ”her” to refer to the city of God mentioned in the previous verse (perhaps Jerusalem) not a woman. If you want to find a bible verse/story that uplifts the spirits of women, I would suggest Proverbs 31 or the book of Esther. Thank you.

YOU CAN’T TELL PEOPLE TO CHANGE OR CONTROL THEIR EMOTIONS WHEN THEY’RE UPSET/SAD.

I can choose to trust in God even when I am hurt and upset, but I am not just going to be all positive all the time. Do you expect to tell someone who’s upset “just cheer up” or “be positive now” and receive a “Okay! I’m going to cheer up now!” or any positive remark?

The beginning of this post pisses me off, because it manipulates people into thinking they must be positive all the time and they cannot be upset or sad at all (God gave us a diverse spectrum of emotions and we shouldn’t punish people for being upset).
