You Are Special

[You Are Special]

You Are Special

Difficult to accept?

It is for me too.

The greatest truth I’ve found is that whilst people may criticise me for who I am, how I look, what I do, what I say;  when others give up, God accepts me as I am.

When I’m prickly, angry, resentful & push others away, He draws me closer.

When no-one else can handle my illness, he says, “I care; let me embrace you.”

I am far from perfect but He knows that … and He still accepts me for who I am.

If you’re struggling today you are in good company (including myself). I’ve learnt that when the shit hits the fan & I can count on no-one else, I can always count on God.

It’s rarely an easy or straightforward path, but neither is the climb to the peak of Everest; just so worth it when you’ve done.

Never underestimate the power of love to give solid foundations, bring about change & offer new hope.

YOU are special.

You ARE special.

You are SPECIAL

That’s what The Cross is all about.

Take care until next time …

About waywood

Hi & Welcome to my thoughts. I share subjects that are important to me. As you’ll notice, these subjects can be quite broad & varied. I like variety; I like breadth & I like a challenge. I am passionate about helping others overcome their fears, grow in confidence & succeed. Although many people would label me as an achiever, I have battled low confidence, low self-esteem & a couple of nasty, long periods depression over the years. I can’t say, “I know how you feel” but I can hopefully empathise & offer some of the things that are helping me to turn my life around. Please feel free to comment, share & enjoy. Take care, best wishes & keep well Stuart

    Some mornings you feel you need a little encouragement to start the day, so you look at Facebook and all you see is cheap clichés and plastic platitudes… then you read something like this that is birthed in real life and doesn’t try to sugar-coat the truth. Thanks, Stu. Hope you have a better day today.
