Skin.

Skin is both strong and soft. Your skin is strong enough to protect you from so much harm. Like, a virus can’t burrow into your body through your skin. But skin is also fragile and easily burnt or broken.

Maybe, because of the media storms raging around COVID-19, racial tension, and gender-based violence, you don’t feel safe in the skin you’re in? Know this today: God made your skin, and you can trust His promise over you:

He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle. He will bring justice to all who have been wronged.‘ (Isaiah 42:3 – https://bit.ly/3hYWt1u)

Grasshoppers and Giants.

Tom Thumb is only as big as his father’s thumb but he’s packed with courage. He has interesting adventures. He’s eaten by a cow, trapped in a pudding and encounters giants but he bravely survives.

When the Israelites were about to enter the Promised Land, most of them forgot God’s promises and absolute power. “We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them” (Numbers 13:33 – https://bit.ly/2ZWCFV1).

Fear of others can make us feel very small and pathetic. But when God looks at you he sees you as a mighty warrior, able to kill giants and enter the promised land.
Take courage, Mighty Warrior!

You’re Extraordinary.

The original Little Mermaid is a very grim fairytale (not the Walt Disney version). She longs to be human but her transformation causes excruciating physical pain. She must marry the prince or die. He rejects her and she dies. End of story.

God created and wired you in a very specific, unique way. You may currently feel like a fish out of water but take heart. You are extraordinary. Grow and thrive in who God designed you to be.

“For we are God’s workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10 – https://bit.ly/2veEhZV).

Mirror Mirror!

Snow White’s evil stepmom had a magical mirror that fed her obsession about being the most beautiful woman. Imagine a magical mirror that showed the Inside You – your secret thoughts, hidden sins and all the shameful, ugly things you’ve done. Yoh – that would be one mucho ugly reflection!

Fortunately, God doesn’t run away screaming from us (even though he knows EVERYTHING). “God put the wrong on him (Jesus) who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God” (2 Corinthians 5:21 – https://bit.ly/2zfs2x6). Therefore, when God looks at us he doesn’t remember our sins anymore (Isaiah 43:25 – https://bit.ly/3f9Xoel).

We’re totally forgiven.
Thank you Lord!
