Welcome to day number 1 and thanks for joining me on this 21-day journey of discovering who we are in Christ.
If you do not have an image problem or struggle with issues concerning your self-esteem or confidence, then you are one of the most fortunate people on planet earth. But the fact remains that every one of us struggles with some kind of complex.

I am unique and special, one of a kind
I am talented
I am gifted
I am creative
I am loved. Someone thinks highly of you, someone is crazy about you
I am strong
I am a winner
I am Smart and intelligent

So tell yourself today that you are a Masterpiece… because that is exactly who you are.
Father, I am so thankful that you created me in your image and your likeness. Thank you that you purposed my entire life to be conformed to the very image of Christ your Son. So today let everything that does not resemble you fall by the way, and stamp in me the exact representation of your being. In Jesus Name – Amen!
