I have watched you change your spots to match the colors of your surroundings. To be like another person, to be what you think they approve. I have seen how you have grown and the lack of approval you have experienced. Those you looked to, hadn’t been approved either. They had none to give. There have been those who have approved you briefly, but their purposes were not genuine. So many have needed you to need them.  I did not intend for life to be this way. But I have provided truth for you.  You have My approval. I have set My love over your heart as a seal. Sanctify Me as Lord in your heart. I want you to turn from others and into Me.  Allow Me to be the One who approves you.  It is My desire that you be conformed to My likeness, to live and walk as I did.  You carry My very Presence within you! I work in you and will direct you to understand that you are complete in Me.

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Colossians 2:9-10 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;  and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
