I have a really bad habit of looking down at the floor whenever I'm walking past other people. I'm not sure when it started exactly, but I do know that it's been happening for many years now. Yesterday, as I was walking into work, I realized I was doing it again. Head hung, eyes focused on each forward step I took, hoping that I would just blend in with all of the surroundings and no one would notice me. All of a sudden, like a rushing wind, God spoke and it was as clear as day.
"HOLD YOUR HEAD UP! I CREATED YOU!"
Woah. God called me out right then and there. He called me out of my little hiding place, the place where self-consciousness reigned over me. In 7 little words, He literally broke the chain that I had allowed myself to be enslaved by. Instantly, I lifted my head up. I felt a rush with each step I took after the revelation had come. The words kept replaying over and over again in my mind. Hold your head up! Because I created you. I formed you. There is no part of you that you need be ashamed of. There is no part of you that lacks. There is no part of you that is too much to accept. I created you, so hold your head up.
I just feel like someone else may have needed to hear this today.
Hold your head up! The same God who created the universe took the time to create you.
