Joseph is such a sweetheart, and is on the autism spectrum. Sometimes we have to work through little things, and I often clap for Joseph through every little accomplishment. We worked through something that morning, and I clapped and celebrated every time he did it. Eventually he was doing it on his own, but he would look and me, clap and say, “Yay!”
Joseph has learned to celebrate his little accomplishments. Joseph has learned to celebrate himself.
Some of us can only see ourselves through a negative light. We look at everything we have ever done wrong. We look at how much we weigh. We look at how much farther we should be down the road. We look at the accomplishments of others. After all that looking, all too often we can see no good in ourselves.
Stop and think for a moment. What can you celebrate about you? I know some are having a hard time coming up with something, and that ought not be! Are you kind to others? Are you an encourager? Are you a good parent? Are you a prayer warrior? Have you grown in your relationship with God?
Today, I challenge you to celebrate YOU. Celebrate what God has done in YOU and through YOU. As a matter of fact, I challenge you to comment on this blog by writing something good about you.
Let the party begin! Celebrate YOU!
“I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvelous are Your works! And that my soul knows very well.” – Psalm 139:14
