See Yourself Through God’s Eyes
Written By: Braiden Belnap
Summary: I believe there have been times in your life where you didn’t feel like you were good enough. Like you didn’t deserve the things that you had. I know personally that there have been times where I was super low and hated myself. I felt like a complete failure and like I had no purpose in life. That was the biggest lie ever. It wasn’t until I had the opportunity to see myself through God’s eyes that everything changed. In this blog I share an experience I had with an angel and give advice on the things that I learned to do that helped me see myself through God's eyes.
You have been given a life. You have been given a purpose and destiny. You have also been given many talents and natural abilities to help you do things in life and enjoy life. Life is a journey that is like a mountain. Mountains have ups and downs, curves, peaks, valleys, snakes, spiders, butterflies…I could go on but my point is that life is not a linear journey. Us as people can’t see the whole mountain; we can only see what’s in front of us; however God sees the full picture. God knows what we are capable of becoming. Even when life is hard and daunting you have to push through them and try to find the good. We are never given battles that we can’t overcome and learn from. When I was a teenager my parents got divorced and I didn’t know what my identity was. I felt like I was alone in the world and started making decisions that went against my values. I wanted to fit in at whatever cost. I was going down a bad path that would impact my future in a negative way if I continued. I was in a really bad place that put me in danger. You are probably not in that same place that I was but if you’re feeling like you have lost your identity you haven’t. I promise that your identity is still in there and God knows what your purpose is. So the question is how did I get out of the situation that I was in and how can you get out of your situation so you can live the life that God wants you to live?
I had an experience that changed my life and made me make the decision to not do drugs, sell drugs, and stop hanging out with the people that were dragging me down. You could feel like you are stuck in the same routine and have lost your light of enjoying life. It is a matter of staying consistent and not giving up that changed my life. What does that mean? If you want to change your life and live it how God intended you to it starts with making goals. The goals can be big or small, that is for you to decide. Once you have decided what you want to change you will need to stay consistent and not give up on those goals you have created. If I didn’t have a strong will to change my life around I could have been dead or in prison. I would hope that your situation is a little less scary but my point is that you have the opportunity right now to change your life.
Another important thing is to look at yourself through God’s eyes while you are on your journey of life. A lot of people don’t believe in themselves and don’t think they are able to accomplish the things they want to in life. People are often scared of failure and forget how amazing the success would feel. God looks at every individual and sees the big picture. God knows what is in our hearts, he knows what we can do and always believes in us no matter what. So why shouldn’t we look at ourselves in the same light? We should see ourselves from God’s perspective and understand that we are amazing and have a lot to offer the world. Once we can start seeing ourselves through God’s eyes our idea of ourselves will change.
You are amazing and have so many gifts and talents and things that no one else has. Don’t hide your light, let everyone else see it and touch the world in a positive way. You have a successful future ahead of you if you reach for it.
