We all have our own insecurities in life as we look upon world’s idea of perfection. We have looked down ourselves many times. We have been ridiculed and bullied at some points of our lives. We tried to escape reality as we dreamed to be somebody else. But let us try to capture our real selves in the lens of faith. Take a selfie with me today!
Selfie has paved a wide scale of viewers in our time. By Google’s definition, it is a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and shared via social media. People were hooked to a photo of themselves. But do we really capture our real photographic features?
Let me take you through a short and life changing way of taking a selfie…
Selfies when office tasks are accomplished!
Appreciate yourself when you take a selfie.
Many of us do not see the beauty that God has created in and through us. We all have individual beauty. It is a unique glam. It is not just a trend but a brand of our selves. We need to see God’s image in us as presented in the Bible even if people around us cannot accept or recognize our essence in the grand scheme of art and life. We have to break through fear and doubts.
Genesis 1:26 (NIV)
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness…”
If God said it, then it settles everything. Let us pursue Him and His image as we let go of every label people has glued on our face.

Capture your best angles.
Of course, we all have unpleasant curves and sides. But why should we magnify and enlarge those areas? Why not discover our best fit? We all have potentials. God has gifted us in such a way that we are equipped with all that. God has deposited treasures in our earthen vessels. So as we find our best angle, let us be at peace that we have potentials in our lifetime. Discover them and get yourself a nice self shot believing for a purposeful life!
2 Corinthians 4:7 (NIV)
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Turn your glitch to glamour.
Know this today that what we thought as a flaw is actually our unique beauty. People as we are, we tend to seek what belongs to others and how they look and project themselves. We are always seeking what is lacking from us that most of the time, we overlooked what we already have all the while. Our life’s journey should not be defined by the absence of some things. But we should live life in discovering what is already in us. Discover what we have and start from there towards the fulfillment of our life’s destiny.
Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Make no mistake about this! We are wonderfully created by God. His wonders in us are embodied in our individuality and unique abilities. These consist our identity that no man can duplicate!
Start today with redefined selfies…
Now, we can all start a new set of selfies. But this time, it will be meaningful and refined!
Prepare your smartphones like #OPPOF1s with its great features on its camera having 13 MP primary camera (operates with phase detection autofocus and LED flash) and 8MP front camera in 1/4″ sensor size that would add value to your selfie.
Focus the lenses. Tap the button and tada!!!
