Deuteronomy 32:6 "Do you thus repay the LORD, O foolish and senseless people? Is not he your father, who created you, who made you and established you?"
Isn't it strange? Yesterday I was wondering why I always want to be someone other than who I am. I am embarrassed about my qualities and status. But I am just a person like everyone else. I am not as far down the road as some people, but I am farther down it than others. God made me the way I am. He enabled me to exhibit fear, anger, sadness, and joy. Is that something to be ashamed of? Not if I express those feelings in a way that is in line with Him. He has also allowed and enabled me to be where I am right now, in my studies and church, and even where I live. I should regard that as a privilege to enjoy until He leads me somewhere else.
Lord, help me to express my emotions in a way that is consistent with Your character; for You made me in Your image but gave me the free will to stray from that image. Help me to enjoy the place You have made for me right now instead of constantly looking for the place You will make for me in the future. Amen.
