Swimsuit Confidence: Be Flawless

  

Consider it a great joy, my {SISTERS} brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing. (‭James‬ ‭1‬:‭2-4‬ HCSB)

FOCUS: Swimsuit Confidence is knowing that you’re ENOUGH

All that I have is all that I am. And God says that’s enough. 

So listen y’all, seriously that’s not some cheesy feel good mantra to shake off the negative self talk, that’s the honest-to-God truth. 

When He looks at you He doesn’t see the list of things you keep reminding yourself of; the haves and have nots, the woulda, coulda, shouldas; or the “if & when”. 

NO, He looks at you and sees the amazing wonderfully made perfection put on this earth to do some mind blowing things that will bless every person you come in contact with. When we come to Christ with an open heart, with an open mind and open hands He recognizes that we can’t do anything without Him. 

All that He’s looking for is our humble acceptance of His invitation to live boldly, courageous, out loud; with confidence; the same life He had in mind when He created us. (Jeremiah 29:11-13). 

The old habit of thinking, the disqualifying yourself, the shrinking back because you’ve decided ‘this is all that I have & all that I am’ needs to be shifted to “THIS is ALL that {because} THIS is ALL that I AM“. You were created in HIS IMAGE. All that He is, you are!!!! 

Romans 12:2 reminds us  “Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s will is—what is good and pleasing and mature”(‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ CEB)

 

So now there isn’t any condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭1‬ CEB) And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭28‬ ESV) 

The cross has made you flawless.

You have God’s permission to be unapologetically flawless!!!!

MercyMe 

No matter the hurt or how deep the wound is, no matter the pain, still the truth is the cross has the cross has made you flawless!
