There's Nothing Ordinary About You

There's Nothing Ordinary About You
Before you know if you have red hair or brown, 
before you know if you are black or white, 
before you know of what religion you are a part, 
you have to know that you are loved.
-Michael Jackson


There's nothing ordinary about you.

The reason why we feel inadequate and unworthy is because of shame. Shame is the cancer of the soul.

We feel ashamed for what we have done in the past.

We feel ashamed if we don't fit in; if we don't speak the right words, if we don't drive the right car, if we don't wear the right clothes.

We feel unworthy because we are unkind to ourselves. We keep playing the mistakes we have done in the past over and over again like an old movie.

We look down on ourselves.

We become our own judge and executioner which makes us hate ourselves more.

Don't be too hard on yourself.

Get involved in a community or group where people don't judge you and look at your wrong but those who lift you higher.

Bask in God's unconditional love, kindness and mercy.

Be like the sponge. The sponge may be dirty, but it can clean.

Use your scars to be like stars that light up other people's darkness.

Turn your mess into a message.

You are extraordinary because an extraordinary God created you and loves you like you haven't sin at all.

If God can make the sinful women in the Bible like Tamar become Jesus' ancestor, He can use you to make extraordinary things happen.

Treat yourself with kindness the way God treats you and live an extraordinary life.
Because there's nothing ordinary about you.

  1. We are always much more harsh on ourselves than we are on others... it would be good for us to remember we are only human and we make mistakes... Heavenly Father always loves us, he is waiting for us to see that...

  5. This post hit the nail on the head for what really keeps us down if we let it. And God is about what we CAN be, not what we were.
    Thanks for posting Lux!

  10. Thanks for sharing this, Lux! Something I always need to remind myself about! I really enjoyed this line, "Get involved in a community or group where people don't judge you and look at your wrong but those who lift you higher." A very powerful and wonderful gift when you find those people in your life! Blessings!
