We were woven together by the hands of God. He chose us. We are His masterpiece.
In Psalm 139 it says, “You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.” In Ephesians 2:10 it says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”
I think sometimes we think to ourselves that we aren’t worthy, that we aren’t good enough. But guys, the Bible clearly tells us that we weren’t accidental! We are here for a reason. We have a purpose. And what is that purpose? To lift the name of Jesus and love Him wholeheartedly.
I got to partner with this really amazing brand called Mae Woven for this post. Their overall objective is to support women from all walks of life, all areas, and all demographics. I just love that. I think it is so important for women especially to know that they were woven together by the King of Kings.
It’s so easy on social media to get so caught up in appearance and identity. We look at all of these other accounts and become so envious of the “life they must live.” Here’s the truth: our identity isn’t in our Instagram feeds, it isn’t in our relationships, it isn’t in our friendships, it isn’t in our appearance. Our identity is in God.
By definition, identity is the fact of being who or what a thing is. We were hand crafted by God. He calls us His masterpiece. We are of God. Our identity is in God. And that is such an important thing to remember.
Comparison is one of the most challenging things I deal with. I constantly compare myself to others and try to become someone that I’m not. We have to remember that we were created to be ourselves. I don’t know about you, but being myself can be so difficult. Because we fear other’s opinions when only one opinion matters. The opinion of whom our identity is in.
Please remember that you are loved by the Creator of the universe — the same Creator who wove you together in the womb. And you are so beautiful.
Thank you Mae Woven for making this post possible!
