“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and twice as beautiful as you ever imagined.” – Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh
Now is that true? Let’s check it out.
- Brave– Trust the Lord! Be brave and strong and trust the Lord. (Psalm 27:14a, AMP)
- Strong- Christ gives me the strength to face anything. (Philippians 4:13, CEV)
- Smart– Respect and obey the Lord! This is the beginning of knowledge. (Proverbs 1:7, CEV)
- Beautiful- The Scriptures say it is a beautiful sight to see even the feet of someone coming to preach the good news. (Romans 10:15b, CEV)
- Beautiful– Be beautiful in your heart by being gentle and quiet. This kind of beauty will last, and God considers it very special. (1Peter 3:4, CEV)
So I guess Christopher Robin knew what he was talking about. Now all we have to do is live like we believe it too.
Prayer – Thank you God that you made us to be more than we think we are, to do more than we think we can, for you and for the kingdom. In Christ, Amen.
