In His Likeness

Genesis 1:26-27
26 ¶And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

We were created by our Father in Heaven in His image.  What a great thought to have!  We are children of a loving Heavenly Father who loves us with a perfect love.  He shows this love in a number of ways and each one is a blessing.  When you pray to Heavenly Father, think of a loving Father, in whose image you are created, who is helping you to govern yourself.

We all have divine potential.  Knowing where we came from can help us to see where we're going and what we can become.  God has a plan for everyone and that plan is for us to be happy.  This is done by keeping His commandments and drawing closer to Him.  I am a child of God!
