October 25

Have you ever kept looking at something and knew you had to change it? I walked past this room every day and didn’t like what I saw; it’s not a room I use, it houses the workout equipment that sits idle. For days I shopped, trying to find the perfect picture, and maybe a small table to go under it, but nothing appealed to me. I had a couple of things that might have worked, but their color was all wrong. Then it hit me, and I said to myself, “why don’t you paint them the color you want?” And that’s what I did, and it looks great. This same idea will work when you see something about yourself that you don’t like; you keep searching for ways to fix it to no avail. Even if it’s your appearance that you don’t like, God can fix it! Now, he’s not going to miraculously change your looks, but he can change your attitude about your appearance, and help you to live peacefully with yourself. Just like me finding items in my house to decorate with, you also have it within you to make changes to yourself to become the best you can be in the eyes of God. Remember, the things God looks for in a person, is entirely different from what mankind expects from us; he’s the one who counts! Seek God’s council, and he will help you.

"But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart.”" 1 Samuel 16:7
