Know your worth

So, I've been thinking about this post for awhile and finally decided to just sit down and pour out my thoughts. I'm currently listening to Bethel Live and I can't help but just feel so overwhelmed with love. I know that sounds really cheesy. I'm such a worrier and I tend to be really really hard on myself so its hard sometimes accepting just how much God really loves me. Something has been on my heart for quite awhile. I was watching a video of the "world's ugliest girl" speaking and, wow. That's all I can really say. I mean, she is so inspiring. Her positive attitude towards how rudely people talked about her completely shocked me. I think there's something to be said for her positive attitude. As girls, well as people in general, I think we are so quick to put ourselves down. I mean, really think about it. We are more mean to ourselves than anyone else. One word, one reminder, one mistake completely breaks us. I think the problem is that we rely on others to make us happy and we find out worth in what others say about us. The problem is that we rely on others to make us happy and we find out worth in what others say about us. I struggle with this all the time, believe me. I read that 7 out of 10 young girls believe that they simply aren't good enough. Wow. That's really sad to me. I know that God definitely doesn't want us to feel that way. God gives us worth. He shows us that we really are worthy despite what we think. The verse 139:14 says "I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well." I see this verse all the time and I hope that more girls can read this verse and realize what it really means. We are made by God and we find our worth in Him. So, we shouldn't feel insecure, defeated, unworthy, or ashamed. We should feel loved and joyful knowing that we have infinite worth. We don't find our worth in what others think of us. We find our worth in who God says we are. I think God has been slowly revealing this to me. And I know that I've needed to hear it. I've been relying way too much on the opinions of others to find happiness and worth. And I know now that what I really need is to embrace who God says I am. 

So my prayer tonight is just that anyone who may read this realizes one simple thing: You are of infinite worth.

And remember:

  1. Amen. This is a struggle we all go thru, from time to time.
    When I doubt myself, I like to listen to Matthew West's "Strong Enough." I remind myself: if He lead me to it, He will lead me through it; then I pray constantly for His guidance.
    You've got this!
