Stop Apologizing and Start Praying
Is your relationship with God only skin deep? The answer to that question depends a great deal on how “comfortable you are in your own skin”.
It seems that we live in a time where people are constantly apologizing for everything under the sun. At times, we may even apologize for being ourselves and spend a lot of our time and resources trying to be like someone else.
God is not interested in a superficial relationship where we recite in our prayers all the things about ourselves that we want God to change. Even worse, God is not pleased when we put together a long list of things we want Him to change about others.
Although we may be members of the family of God, the Bible tells us that all the members do not have the same function. By His grace, God gave everyone unique qualities and spiritual gifts as He saw fit. [Romans 12:4-8, 1 Corinthians 12:4-13:13, and Ephesians 4:4-13]
God intended for us to live without apology by praising Him through the use of our God-given talents and abilities to fulfill His purpose for our lives.
When we are “comfortable in our own skin” and praise God for who we are by His grace, we reveal a deep and trusting relationship with God.

And remember, “the family that prays together stays together”. So stop apologizing as if God made a mistake when He made us. Start praying prayers of thanks with others to have a closer walk with God and to stay connected to one another.
