Psalm 17:8 - Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.
If you don’t like who you are here’s something that may help: Try to paint a picture in your mind of the person you would like to be. Do you feel weak? Perhaps you can paint some strength onto your canvas. Do you feel like a failure? Perhaps you can paint some reminders of when you’ve succeeded. Do you feel anxious all of the time? Perhaps you can paint some peace onto your canvas. Go gently. Don’t expect change overnight. Take one step and then the next. When you put your foot in the right direction day after day, you will eventually figure out, with God’s help, the picture of how he sees you. Pick up his paintbrush and see light begin to dawn on the canvas in your mind and begin to do so out in the world. It can change the way you see yourself thus helping you become the person you’d like to be.
