Weekly Topic Saturday #05: You Are Wonderfully Made

Welcome to Weekly Topic Saturdays!

Hello all, I pray that your week was filled with joy and love. Welcome back to those who have been with me here at A Golden Dream. For my first-timers, a great big hello there, if you haven't already please check out my previous posts when you get a chance.

Please don't hesitate to join the conversation, there are no right or wrong answers or questions. I'm not proclaiming to know everything, I am simply just discussing and picking topics on things that I personally have gone through and that I know would help someone.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Jeremiah 1:5

The Uniqueness in the World

The Lord designed and perfected us in his perfect image; remember that. HIS perfect image, not yours or anyone else's! You are here for a reason, a purpose, and it wasn’t by chance that you were born. God sees and has a purpose for all living things. You are one of a kind, a limited edition, there’s no one else in the world like you! Be proud that God made you so unique, so different, so special; you should take pride in that, Thank God for that because he is your creator after all.

With being human, it's inevitable to be perfect. We are flawed on purpose, for a purpose, so we must learn to work with what we have been given. So many people wish to change who or what they are because they don’t like what they see. They forget the fact that God made us the exact way he wanted us to be flaws and all.

Individual Uniqueness

God has planned and ordered our steps; he knows our birth date as well as our death date, it's all according to his will. You didn't make it here alone, you had help, honey! The bible tells us that the number of hairs on our head are counted for, so God’s got you covered.

As I grew up, one thing that I didn't like about myself was that I loved too much and in doing so I always got hurt in the process. I cared for people so much, at times I made other people's problems my problems. I would give until I am worn out and my social battery was depleted or low. Within the last 2 years, I've been working diligently on how to help others without jeopardizing my time, energy, and money. People will help kill you faster if you don't set boundaries for yourself. I've learned to embrace the gift of giving to others but learned to do it in a way that's not taxing on myself.

I love this saying and I hold it close to me as a reminder, "My cup runneth over. What's in the cup is for me, and ONLY for me, but what overflows out of it, is for others." This quote is so true, I can't give people what they want if I'm not able to. I had to learn to embrace my uniqueness in having a giving heart and also learn to present boundaries to protect my giving heart.


It was so hard for me to find confidence and love myself when I was younger because I was constantly bullied and singled out for the way I looked. I was picked on for things that were out of my control like my complexion, my size, my learning disability, and so on. It made me feel extremely low about myself and I longed to do anything I could to change myself to be accepted by my peers.

I’ve learned over time, that the moment we become jealous of what another person has, it's like giving God a slap in the face. One thing God loves is variety, and uniqueness, if he wanted all of his creations to be and look the same he would have done so. He is omnipotent. Even identical twins are slightly different from each other. So the moment you become jealous of someone else, stop and think about what you're doing, and how it would make God feel.

"Long before you were conceived by your parents, you were made in the mind of God."

-Rick Warren

Before I Close, Consider these questions:

  1. What makes you unique? A Birthmark? Creativity? Personality?

  2. Do I compare myself to others? If yes, How can I change my narrative of myself to appreciate my uniqueness?

  3. Why do you think God molded you the way that he did?

  4. What are your talents and skills?

  5. Do you find yourself getting lost in your imperfections rather than glorifying your uniqueness?


With Love, I hope everyone embraces what makes them different. To love each of your imperfections and to not compare them with what another person has. We are all created with special unique spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities and so much more. Don't let anyone put you down because of how you look or feel.

Speak a declaration over your life and remind yourself, that “I am a chosen generation and I am called for greatness. God has ordained me to speak what I need. God is working in my life, on my life, and I’m called to do the work of the Lord. Lord, you made me in your perfect image and there’s nobody like me.” Amen.

Declare it and Speak it now!

Responding to Lady Robinson: I definitely compared myself to other people, and what society said was perfect and beautiful but as I got older that had to stop. I had to remind myself im uniquely made in my uniqueness, and God doesn't make mistakes like people do. So that brought me comfort. Thank you for commenting!!!

Responding to Amore: I agree with you wholeheartedly. We can not judge people by their appearance or further more on first impressions. Honestly I have rejected someone based off of looks and when I got the opportunity to get to know them they gave me great insight and wisdom. The bivle says be careful how you treat people because you could be entertaining an angel. Thanks again for commenting!!!

Hi everyone! Just to kinda answer some of your questions. I think I recognized at an early age that none of us are perfect but, that God made us the way he wanted us to be. And I just rolled with it. I would I see other people and say, ummm I wish I had that or looked that way. Yes sometimes I would. But I was very awkward little girl and as an adult. I just learned to embrace it. Its too hard trying to be something you are not. It would be a boring world if everyone was the same. I think one reason God molded me the way that I am is to be able to r…

To Sherronda,

I'd like to think that i am the same way I would much rather get to know the person on the inside rather than base it off of looks. My mother has always said you cannot judge a book by its cover because what is inside might have been the best book you would have ever come across.

Do you think its the same with people?

Personally,I think that if you go based off of just what's on the outside then you loose and miss the opportunity to get to know some amazing people. Looking good isn't going to get us into heaven. God doesn't care what we look like. He cares about our heart and what our…

1. I would say not that I have a good amount of self- esteem. As I'm working on myself and knowing who I am and Who's I am, I have great confidence in myself. When walking with God you have to be confident. There's no walking behind God sad or weak. No! I'm walking behind him with attitude and boldness. So that's how I see it. lol

2. I do think self-esteem plays a major role in decision making. You have to have some form of confidence in yourself to know put yourself in harms way, to have the discernment to say, this don't sit right with me but I'll pray on it. So I do think self-esteem is a…
