Heart to Heart: ♡ Labels ♡

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. -Ephesians 2:10

Do you have designer labels in your closet?  Do you have to wear Juicy Couture or Louis Vuitton to fit in and be accepted by the crowd?  Do you put more emphasis on the designer labels in your closet than the designer labels you have on your life? Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with having nice things or designer brands. It's when we start defining ourselves by these labels that we lose sight of who we are and our value.  

God created you.  He "broke the mold with you" as people like to say.  There has not, is not, and never will be anyone just like you.  God gave you fingerprints like no one else has.  He gave you DNA like no one else has.  He created a unique smile just for you and He has a specifically designed purpose entirely for you.  Doesn't that make you feel special?

Those designer clothes make you "think" you feel and look special, but don't forget about the labels God put on you.....extraordinary, loved, paid for, worthy and unique. Designer labels are costly, but "THE Designer's labels" are priceless.

Do you care more about the labels in your closet or the labels on your life?
Make a list of all the things God says about you (His designer labels) and hang it near your closet for you to frequently see.
Dear God, so many times I just want to fit in and belong.  I want to be popular.  Help me to realize that designer clothes and labels are superficial, and really don't mean anything compared to the design you created me with and the labels you put on me.  Clothe me with your labels. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
