What Does God Think About Me?

A moment of confession here:  Wednesdays are supposed to be my blogging days.  Yet, today is Thursday, and still, no blog.

That's because I was feeling utterly uninspired yesterday.  The feeling carried on into today, until I was browsing pinterest (because what else do you do when you're uninspired?) and saw this:

He calls me beautiful one.  This made me think of what else God thinks of me, so I went on a treasure hunt through the Bible. And When I was done, I felt way more inspired. 

Let me first just say this:  If you have been a Christ follower for any amount of time, chances are that you have read some parts of the bible more than just once or twice.  Sometimes, when we do this, we sadly fall into the pattern of forgetting how incredible the Bible actually is.  Do not do this!  These are the very words of God, written to us as His dearly loved children.  These words are living and active.  There is incredible value, unending encouragement, and yes, even inspiration in them. 

I will so often tear myself down or become discouraged over something as small as having a bad day.  I will dwell on a mistake I made much longer than I will dwell on what God says about me.  I have decided that for me, that has to change.  God has said amazingly beautiful things about me.  He doesn't think of me as an unorganized, worrying, confused girl who can't seem to get anything done.  No, instead, He calls me beautiful.  It's time I start remembering that. 

Today, I hope that you immerse yourself in the fullness of what God says about you.  I hope that it builds your confidence and reminds you of your value.  Allow yourself to realize the immenseness of God's love for you.  

This is what the creator of the ENITRE universe says about us:

You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
Psalm 139:14

You are the salt and light of the world. 
"You are the salt of the earth . . . You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden."
Matthew 5:13-14

You are complete in Christ. 
"And you have been given fullness in Christ."
Colossians 2:10

God holds your hand and helps you.
"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, 
do not fear; I will help you."
Isaiah 41:3

You are loved with an everlasting love. 
"I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness."
Jeremiah 31:3

God takes great delight in you and sings over you.
"The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. 
He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with his love, 
He will rejoice over you with singing."
Zephaniah 3:17

You are anointed and have been given a purpose. 
"The Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives . . ."
Isaiah 61:1

You are forgiven and redeemed. 
"In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sin,
 in accordance with the riches of God's grace."
Ephesians 1:7

You are created in the image of God. 
"So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, 
male and female He created them."
Genesis 1:27

You are beautiful.
"The king is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for He is your Lord."
Psalm 45:11

You are more than a conquerer.
"No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us."
Romans 8:37

You are chosen, holy, and dearly loved. 
"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved . . ."
Colossians 3:12

You are chosen, holy, and blameless.
"For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world 
to be holy and blameless in His sight."
Ephesians 1:4

You are God's handy work.
"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
Ephesians 2:10
You are worth fighting for.
"The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still."
Exodus 14:14

You are set free. 
"Because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death."
Romans 8:2
"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free."
Galatians 5:1

{This one may be my favorite} You are a new creation. 
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; 
the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17


  1. This is great! These words are so encouraging. One of my goals is to grow deeper in my faith and to spend more time reading the Bible. These are great starting points! And would be nice little reminders by my bathroom mirror :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  2. Thank you for sharing this. I am so glad God led me to this! I will stand on God's promises, and believe in all He can and will do for me because He LOVES me!!! :)

  3. I just realized after reading Galatians 5:1, that is where this song came from... it is called For Freedom by Jimmy Needham

  4. Wow, I didn't even know some of these verses existed! Thank you for posting them. Many of them are the exact sentimentality I wanted and needed to receive from God lately. How do you find these? I would love to have your method, so I can find them on my own. :-)


say whatcha need to say.
