Recognize and Ignite Your Spark Of Greatness

Everywhere we look, we see in others the things we lack...
A skinny Mom. 
Someone who is well dressed and has the perfect hair and makeup. 
Maybe someone with a lot more computer savvy. 
What about the blogger that expresses herself so well. 

Basing our self-worth on others accomplishments can be a constant source of self-degradation. We can’t base our self-worth on others accomplishments…

Our self-worth is based on: 
Our ability to be a little better today than we were yesterday. 
The quality of our heart, mind, and soul. 

‘Ultimately we are only in competition with ourselves. We must reach deep down into our souls and call forth our God given intelligence and capabilities.’ Elder James E Faust 

Satan attacks our minds and identity. If he can convince us that we are of little or no worth, or that we’re not as good as so-and-so, then he has won a big battle.

 Who are we really? 

We are the literal offspring of a Heavenly Being, also known as the King of Kings…God is the Father of our spirits!
           *Acts 17:29 For as much then as we are the offspring of God. (KJV) 
           *Hosea 1:10 Ye are the sons (and daughters) of the living God. (KJV) 

We are literal Kings and Queens in the making. 
           *Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. (KJV) 

Here are some questions I'd like you to contemplate:

What would happen to you and your relationships with others if you really KNEW you were born to be a Queen? 
 • Would you treat your spouse differently knowing that he was born to become a King? 
 • How about your children (especially our teens and our children that give us extra challenges). What would happen if we saw at them the way our Father in Heaven sees them…Heirs to His throne. 

          *Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified together. (KJV) 
          * Galatian’s 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son (daughter); and if a son (daughter), then an heir of God through Christ. (KJV) 

Heavenly Father knows our hearts and if we follow the promptings of the Spirit, we can gain a true picture of our potential…we will understand our true identity. I understand that we all have bad days, days (especially PMS and Menopausal days) where we don’t feel good about ourselves.  If we recognize these are just passing moments and not the REAL ME, then these DAYS will have little effect on our self-esteem.

Encourage yourself more!

Find fault with yourself less! 

                             Look in the mirror every day...
and say “I love you, I love you just the way you are. I really, really do.” Look straight into your eyes and say this until you begin to believe it and then say it again! 

 Now is a good time to share some things that you have done RIGHT! List them in the comment section. This will solidify in your own mind that you are doing a great job!

 You are awesome!

I also was great with my kids this morining, I have really found ways to get speech challenged children to use their words more and I have fun doing it! That was harder than I wish it was!!

  2. Becky Jane,
    I am one of those people who find it painful to come up with things I do right. I was struggling to write something here, but then I remembered 2 things that happened last week. My 26 yr old son told me that I was the kindest person he has ever met. My 23 yr old daughter told me that I am the most forgiving person she knows. Those 2 statements blessed me more than I can tell you because I may not be beautiful, or tech savvy or a great writer, but I've been a good Christ like example to my children. And to me, that's what counts the most!!!

  3. Beautiful song and so inspirational; you're awesome too Becky :) I think what I'm still trying to do right is raising my daughter in a loving family. Even if she's 40 yrs old, she's still going to be my baby daughter and I would still try to make it right. :)
    Thanks for the post, I love it.
    Hope you're having a great week,
    Barbara

  7. Another GREAT post Becky Jane!! I so often wish I could write like so many other bloggers. Like you for instance! I know I will never be able to do that, so I have accepted it and just write the best way I know how.

  10. Thank you for the little push in the right direction. I catch my self often comparing myself to others. I have to try more often to look past my shortcomings and remember even with my faults I am a good mom and grandmother.

  11. Love this! I so needed this today! I am always comparing myself to others, especially bloggers that I admire. I am quite a perfectionist so when I see someone doing anything better than me, I panic and think I am failing at life in general. I need to remind myself every day of exactly what you have said in this post. I know I am a good writer even if there are a million other people who are better at blogging than me. I just have to remember that I am getting better every day and that is what counts. Thank you for this post!! (Definitely tweeting and facebooking it!)
