No matter what “color” God created us to be, whether black, white, browns etc. We are the color of Love. We were created by a God, our Father who adores us. In Love, He created you! We were never created with the color of anger, because it says mean and hateful things. God is The GOD OF LOVE.
We were never created with the color called greed.
We were never created to hurt anyone.
But, because we were born with a “bent to sin” or a ” bent to be good, ” we are the color we choose to be.
We were never created to be “better than others ” and to hold ourselves up on a pedestal.
We were never created to be labeled by other people. Because God created us, He is the only one who should label us:
You are beautiful, You are my Prince / or Princess, You are the Apple of my eye, You can do all things, You are strong, never weak, You are my friend, I adore you, I Love you because I created you, You are an Heir of Salvation, You are the seed of Abraham, etc.
We were never created to be alone:
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But, pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered , two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 NIV
We were created by a God who has great things in store for us. We need to follow Him and be the color of Love!
Give the color of serving. Give to live. Giving gives you a feeling of happiness in your heart and takes away the feelings of ungratefulness. Color your world with Love, not anger, not hate, not greed, not divisiveness, not evil. Color your world with appreciation of others and yourselves.
Be the color you were meant to be and help others to be the colors God created them to be.
If someone is needing lifted up in their Spirit, give them the Color of Encouragement.
What color were you created to be?
If a helper, color yourself a helper.
If needing a friend, just color yourself FRIEND and be friendly.
We all need to be lifted up and no one knows what the other person is going through.
If a grump, find out the root reason for it.
No one should ever be lonely or friendless, but there are so many lonely colors in this world.
Color yourself who God wants you to be!

In this four week mini Bible Study you will examine your faith and what it means to have faith in God. When we believe in God we then learn to walk in faith and trust God. But first we must believe, and it’s up to us, we can either choose to believe in Him or not. But faith will mean nothing until we believe with all our heart that God is who He says He is.
5 STAR AMAZON REVIEW: “I really enjoyed this mini study. I like when things make you think and journal and you can focus on one aspect at a time. It was a great study.”
