What's Your Life Verse

I originally posted this on my personal Facebook profile in June 16, 2017...

The day I turned 39 was the day I decided to finally start a #Bujo or a #BulletJournal. I'm still not sure whether it would finally work for me or not but, at this point, it sure is a good place to pour out my creative juices.

So anyway, in an effort to personalize my bujo, I thought of writing my life verse to remind me daily of who I am. Do you have a life verse? It's a Bible verse that speaks directly to you and touches you to the core. Mine is based on Psalms 139:14 and I tweaked it a bit to make it speak to me. It now says, "YOU ARE FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE."

Being raised in a typical Pinoy community that thinks labeling is funny, I grew up being #insecure of myself. I was convinced that, to the world, I was not good enough. I was not pretty enough. I was not fair-skinned enough. I was not smart enough. I was not rich enough. And I carried these lies until I became an adult.

Did you know that, even when I was already in The Feast family for 5 years now, I only came to realize my life verse weeks ago, on my 39th birthday? I was just pondering on how the past years were for me and this verse stood out while I was doing my Daily Devotion. IT WAS GOD WHO SPOKE TO ME. It was a virtual hug from the Lord telling me, "Hey, I MADE YOU. YOU ARE SPECIAL! YOU ARE LOVED!" And it was enough to make me realize that I am not who I thought I was all these years.

So, yeah...

Who says I'm not pretty enough?
Who says I'm not slim enough?
Who says I'm not smart enough?
Who says I'm not perfect enough?
My calligraphy sucks? LOL! I don't care anymore.

Yes, I'm flawed. But I know, I'M SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MESS! Because it's how my Father in heaven made me - fearfully and wonderfully.
