Most of my life I have struggled with the idea that I am even close to being Amazing, much less beautiful, courageous, brilliant, etc. I have always been able to see others sparkle and shine, and be amazing in who they are and what they do in the world, but seeing myself in their reflection was different. I felt ‘less than’ and ‘not good enough’ than everyone else. After spending a lot of time devouring God’s word, and journaling about who I am in Christ, I suddenly had a revelation that changed my whole perception about being called Amazing.
That’s the cool thing about the Bible, the inspired word of God, the living word. It comes alive to me every time I read it, and since we know God is the same yesterday, today, and always, His word for us is true even today. Did you know that you were born to be Amazing? That’s how God designed you. In Isaiah 9:6 (MSG) we are told of the gift of a child to be born, and given to us, to be called Amazing Counselor, Strong God, Eternal Father, Prince of Wholeness. As daughters of the Most High God, we’re also created in His image and our journey is to become more like Christ in our character. If I believe God’s word to be true, then I am also called to show up in the world, be visible, and help others by being Amazing, Strong, Eternal, and Whole. I was born to be Amazing, and so were you!
