It seemed there was always someone who did it better.
I just couldn’t land in that spot called “the best”.
I called myself a Jack of all Trades, but a Master of None.
I would laugh and make light of it, but traveling along my thoughts were words that whispered, “You always fall short of being enough.”
Can you relate?
I worked hard – very hard – at all things. As though I were working to earn my worth.
Maybe I somehow believed that if I was
The “est” anything
Then I would be valuable. Then I would have achieved worth. Then I would be good enough.
Somehow, only then would I be amazing.
Friends, that mind-set framed my life choices and limited my dreams for far too long. I was so busy focusing on trying to earn my worth, I was missing opportunities to pursue my true purpose.
I just didn’t get it. I didn’t get that the God of the Universe had created me specifically with a unique plan. I didn’t get that He doesn’t make mistakes and He doesn’t do things as an afterthought.
He made me perfectly unique.
And He labeled me as “amazing” from the start.
My scores, stats, or appearance didn’t earn that label.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. -Psalm 139:14-15 ESV
So friends, this week I want to tell you that you are already amazing! Even if you don’t have it all together! Because … guess what? No one does. And trying to have it all together is exhausting.
You’re still amazing when
Your child has a tantrum in Target
Your laundry piled up and never made it into the closet
You served microwave mac-n-cheese for dinner 3 nights in a row
You’re not a size 2
Your hair has been stuck in a ponytail for the last month
You didn’t get the job you applied for
Your work wasn’t chosen
You’re Already Amazing
These last few weeks I’ve had the honor of being on Holley Gerth’s launch team for her new interactive Life Growth Guide which releases March 1st! Together with her bestselling book You’re Already Amazing, This study is a powerful tool to guide readers through a process of deeply embracing the fact that they are most definitely already amazing!
Maybe you’ve already read the book? If so, you know it was something that made you stop and think.
Stop and think about truth.
The truth of who you are.
The truth that you are already amazing.
I wish I could place this book and study into the hands of each of you! And I wish I could reach back in time and place one in the hands of a “me” who didn’t know my worth. I can’t. But I can get it in the hands of one of you! Don’t miss the Rafflecopter below to win your set of both the Book and Study Guide!
This guide is more than just a study. It’s a process. It’s like sitting down with a life coach and working your way through your past, your thought processes, and your belief system. Then reframing them while identifying strengths, passions, and weaknesses. Finally, creating a Life Statement and developing a plan of action. You simply cannot walk away from this study without life transformation. You will have a solid grasp of your worth and your purpose.
Holley provides the book, study guide, and videos either on DVD or here on her blog. Below is the book trailer. Doesn’t Holley just have this way about her that makes you want to sit across from her and open your heart? #alreadyamazing
