Eden Coile: In His Image

I am unique. Very unique. EXTREMELY UNIQUE. Nobody in the world is like me.

Sometimes I feel very misunderstood, like nobody understands how I think or feel. I am not typical. I don’t struggle with the things most people struggle with, I battle things that it seems nobody else fights.

When I get discouraged, and I think not a soul on earth is sympathetic towards me, I get alone and let sorrowful thoughts drown out logical thinking. I drown in depressing emotions that eat me alive. Occasionally, I will cry alone, isolating myself from everyone outside my area.

But, this is wrong.

I should not do this.

Rather, I should remember that God made me, and He doesn’t make mistakes. He made me special and unique. I am His most precious creation, made in His Image. He has loved me with an everlasting love, and bought me with his precious, redeeming blood. He loved me so much that He would rather die than live without me.

My God is bigger than my problems, mistakes, and insecurities. He is my strength, my song, and my life.

When my world is turned upside-down, when the sun refuses to shed its light, when all earthly friends betray me, forsake me, and deny even knowing me, God will be true to me. He has promised never to leave me. As Phil Wickham said in his song Anthem: “Faithful to the end, God, You are always good. Where do I begin? There’s so many reasons to love you… Your promise never breaks, your beauty never fades. What else can I say? There’s so many reasons to love you…”

Dear reader, this work was made to encourage me, but if you are reading this, and you, like me, struggle with feeling like nobody understands you, remember this: God made you special too, He loves you more than you can imagine. You are so precious to Him. Never doubt your value, you have infinite worth. God gave His only begotten Son to reconcile you unto Himself. Believe Him, for all He says is true.
