THE BOOK Introduction by- Timea Gaines, GOGChurch Youth Leader

YOU ARE ABOUT TO EMBARK ON A JOURNEY TO FIND THE “YOU” YOU’VE ALWAYS DREAMED OF MEETING…THE UNIQUE IMPERFECTLY PERFECT PERSON THAT GOD HAS CREATED YOU TO BE. A LOT OF US HAVE GONE SEEKING SOMETHING “MORE” OR RATHER SOMETHING “GREATER “. WHAT WE FAIL TO REALIZE IS GOD ALREADY PLACED “GREATER “ INSIDE OF US THE MOMENT HE SENT HIS SON JESUS TO DIE ON THE CROSS FOR EVERY IMPERFECT THING IN US. THIS JOURNEY IS ABOUT LEARNING TO SEE YOURSELF AS GOD SEES YOU! THIS IS FOR THOSE WHO ARE TIRED OF PEOPLE-PLEASING, BACK-TRACKING, AND WEARING A MASK. IT IS TIME TO REMOVE THE MASK THAT YOU’VE PUT ON FOR SO LONG AND FIND YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF . ONCE WE DISCOVER WHO GOD IS TO US, IT BECOMES EASY FOR US TO DISCOVER WHO WE ARE. WE HAVE BEEN FLOODED WITH WORDS FROM PEOPLE TELLING US WHO WE ARE THAT WE FORGOT WHO WE ARE NOT. WE ARE NOT ROBOTS, WE ARE NOT DEPRESSED , WE ARE NOT USELESS, WE ARE NOT MISGUIDED, WE ARE NOT HELPLESS, WE ARE NOT A DISAPPOINTMENT, WE ARE NOT STUPID, WE ARE NOT UGLY, WE ARE NOT BROKEN, WE ARE NOT POOR. WE ARE BEAUTIFUL CREATIONS, WE ARE CHOSEN, WE ARE ROYALTY, WE ARE FULL OF PURPOSE AND POWER, WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD, WE ARE FULL OF LIFE, WE ARE GREATER, WE ARE VALUABLE,WE ARE SPECIAL, WE ARE LOVE, WE ARE AIMING TO BE AN AUTHENTIC REFLECTION OF THE GOD WHO CREATED US. WE ARE BECAUSE GOD IS, AND BECAUSE HE IS YOU CAN BE “AUTHENTICALLY YOU”.
