Body and soul, I am marvelously made.
– Psalm 139:14 (MSG) –

The yearning and longing to keep moving, striving, seeking…keep becoming more is always there, isn’t it?

It is constant like the ebb and flow of the ocean. We all have our particular interests and pulls in that respect–whether it is in our job or personal life–health, fashion, business, finance, spiritual growth, self-help knowledge, education, child-rearing, or whatever.

There is no lack of help for us in this country–from stellar fitness coaches and beautiful, quality products to clothes and jewelry to excellent courses and certifications. Let’s not forget striving for promotions and more money and more status. Much of it is just a click, free trial, boss’s decision, subscription, time commitment, or dollar amount away. The fact is that behind every service and product, there are really great and gifted people who are working hard and/or are very passionate about what they are striving for–about what they can offer to the world. They each have had their own calling to offer their particular thing to the world to essentially make it a better place.

Everyone is trying and most people are trying pretty darn hard.

This is a wonderful dynamic we have going here–that we can connect with each other in some way–trying to help each other on our journeys–with the tools and motivation and talents that we have found deep in ourselves to be a part of our life–and what a blessing it is to have so many venues to share these talents.

I have many friends who are fitness and health coaches, nurses, teachers, beauty consultants, fashionistas, fair-trade advocates, and more. They are all amazing at what they do and some really love what they do and offer fantastic products and services. They are each true and wonderful gifts to the world.

Can we all take a new perspective on this dynamic of buying, selling, and service providing–take the wide angle view by stepping back to see the big picture?  We–YOU and ME–were created perfectly and completely upon our conception into this world, despite anything we fall short of in the eyes of this world. Despite anything we buy, sell, have, don’t have, need, or want–not just physical things, but other things like health, romance, family… You were, are, and always will be complete and whole in the eyes of your creator whether you have these things OR NOT.

There is nothing in this earthly world that will make us more complete, more whole, more perfect.

You are exactly the way you were meant to be. Right now. Today. In this moment.

You are doing what you are doing today because it is a step in YOUR journey.

Every hair on your head. Every imperfection in your body and bones. Every wonderful part about you and your life is intentional–though you may only see it in hindsight at times.

So, let’s step to the edge of our ship we are sailing and throw off any sliver of thought seeping into us that we are somehow not good enough, not worthy, not equal. Let’s toss those thoughts confidently into the ocean and let them be washed away.

Let’s enjoy the good services, institutions, businesses, and products that the world offers to us and be thankful they are there–because they are all, most likely, rooted in a foundation of good intentions. We offer each other our skills and talents through these tangible services and motivations and products. God works wonders through people connecting with people and sharing their gifts and passions. But let’s try not make an idol of the thing–the business, the product, the service, or the result of them.

Because, when we realize that even without those things or services, we are whole–have always been whole and perfect in the image of a mighty creator, it effortlessly takes away the pressure. The gifts we offer each other in way of our services, businesses, products, though CAN aid our life’s journey in very beneficial and positive ways. Sometimes, they are life-changing–and that is the utter beauty of us each being different and created uniquely.

So, do you see how this comes full circle? We are all created uniquely and perfectly to make the dynamic of the world flow together.

Your talents and character traits fill the gaps in others’ lives, while theirs fill the gaps in your life!

You can breathe, smile, and relax. You are already whole and complete, so connect with people in the way your soul calls you to connect. When you realize this, it sets you FREE from the comparison trap. You may forget sometimes, but try to remember and maybe DOWNLOAD THIS FREE COLORING “PROMPT” PRINTABLE as a reminder:

Come on, you know you have it in you! Put it on paper. 

Connect. Love. Share. Be confident you are whole ALREADY and just come forth into the world as you are.

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made.

– Psalm 139:14 (MSG) –

Come as you are because you are marvelous.

Selah-Sig
