As a Tewahedo Orthodox Girl, always know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God. Always walk with confidence and esteem. Hold your head up high and don’t allow anyone to talk down to you. Always be respectful and honorable. Be kind and humble. Never be judgmental, but always be understanding and compassionate.
Never think you are above someone or look down on to others who are less fortunate than you. Show humility in everything you do. Never be a follower, because you are a born leader. Always remember you are destined for greatness, because you were created by Greatness. God made you with a purpose and a mission, and you are always special in His eyes. Do not allow anyone to make you feel otherwise.
Love yourself the way God loves you. Do not judge yourself by the standards of this world, as this world did not make you. You are made by God, in His perfect image!
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them
Psalm 139:14 – 17 (NKJV)
