We need to accept ourselves the way God has made us. This means thanking God for your unchangeables. Some examples are:
• Your height
• Your nationality
• Your birth parents
• Your facial features
• Your mental abilities
• Your gender
• Your birth order
Now if we want to be technical we could change our facial features by having surgery or some other process done. And if we want to, we could change our gender by surgery too. We could do these things if we wanted too, but is it what God wants? He made us the way He did for a reason.
Some things God added when He made us were the ability to change things like our weight and appearance of hygiene. To change our weight we eat less or healthier. Also we can exercise. To change our hygiene we take a shower if we are dirty or smell.
Some of us have a handicap or disease, but that shouldn’t stop us from accepting ourselves. Look at all the people who either had a handicap, disease or both. Take Moses for example. He had a speech impediment. He talked slowly. That didn’t stop God from using him to free the slaves of Israel. Moses didn’t want the job, because he was so insecure. But God said to him in Exodus 4:11; And the LORD said unto him, “who has made man’s mouth? Or who made the dumb, the deaf, the seeing or the blind? Have I not the Lord?” This is saying God has made us the way we are.
If you reject the things you cannot change you will become bitter with God.
We might say a lot of things about us are not fair, but look at all the things that happen to God that weren’t fair. We should thank God for what we have, instead of what we don’t have.
Accept the things you don’t like about yourself and go on. That way you won’t be bitter with God.
It may make it hard to accept the things you can’t about yourself, because there will always be that someone who will make fun of you.
God knows what He is doing and He is not finished yet. Let God finish and trust Him. Thank Him for the things you can’t change.
