So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God saw all that he had made, ad it was very good.
Taken from the book of Genesis Chapter One verses 27 and 31
Perhaps the greatest challenge in development is coming to the understanding that the person most worthy of your efforts in ministry is in fact you. Develop the art of seeing yourself as you were intended originally to be viewed; as very good. Your creator having called you forth has since taken a long look at you, warts and all, and yet views you as being very good. To view yourself as anything less is not modesty, it is a denial of who you are and a direct affront to God himself.
Begin now the process of recovering your truest and noblest self. Abandon all of the negative thoughts and untrue statements that have been made of you and see yourself as unblemished, pure and worthy of blessing. See yourself as worthy of the best that your creator has in store for you as you begin to live each day fully expecting doors of opportunity and joy to open before you.
These doors will begin to open for you as you begin to personalize the eternal truths of your universe. You have been made in the image of the best the universe has to offer, independent of how you came into this world and independent of what has happened to you up to this point in your life. As such you have the power to redefine your world by this reality as you walk on the path that you have been created to walk. This journey is one that is constantly filled with blessings that only your creator can give.
Walk now as though your grandest of dreams is your current reality and trust in God to bring this reality to bear as you walk through the doors that he opens for you.
