Junk

I’m so worthless!
I’m fat!
My clothes aren’t in style!
I’m so ugly!
My teeth aren’t white!
I have big feet!
I’m junk!!


I have been thinking about New Year’s resolutions the past week and how people use this as a time to really put themselves down.  Instead of building themselves up, it’s the total opposite!  Well, I have news for you – GOD DON’T MAKE NO JUNK!!!!
I don’t have many friends! 

Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV)

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
    before you were born I set you apart;
    I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

What difference does it make if you have hundreds of friends when God has been your friend since you were in the womb?  He will be there for you ALWAYS!

I have stringy hair!  I’m balding! My hair is to curly/straight!

Luke 12:7 (NIV)

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

God does not care what your hair is like – they are numbered.  Can any of your friends say they know you that well?  You are worth so much to God!
I’m junk!

John 3:16 (NIV)

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

GOD DON’T MAKE NO JUNK.  Each and every person is special to Him.  He sent His only son to live with us on earth.  Jesus – God’s son – lived a perfect life – never doing wrong.  The people hated Jesus because He told them they were doing wrong and He taught about God and having an eternal life with God.  That eternal life is still here for us.  All we have to do is have FAITH.  FAITH that Jesus IS God’s one and only son!  FAITH that Jesus came to earth to live a perfect life.  FAITH that Jesus died on a cross for your sins.  FAITH that Jesus rose from the grave three days later.  Some ask how you can believe in something you can’t see.  I believe I breath air and I can’t see it and I completely believe in God because of my FAITH!

If you believe that Jesus died to save you please say this prayer and join a local church:

Lord Jesus I know I am a sinner.
I believe you died for me on the cross so that I might be saved. Right now I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. I open my heart to You.

Come into my heart Lord Jesus.
I take this very moment in my life to receive you as my Lord and Savior.

Thank you, Jesus, for forgiving all my sins, and giving me eternal life.

Let my life be dedicated to you Jesus, and help me to be the kind of person you want me to be.

Help me to decrease in myself and increase in you Jesus.

Amen!
