OKAY. I always say I will write a new blog post every month and then I don’t. It’s a real issue. I’ll work on it. Anyways, I recently have been around a lot of friends who have been doubting their worth. Quite honestly I think it’s a very big issue that has been hovering over a lot of us in this world recently and it’s sad.
It’s fall, which means that for me, my life is a nonstop schedule and there are many nights that I go “Okay what? Do I have a moment to breathe? To focus on me? Am I okay right now?!” You feel? Bottom line is that we all have these times where we feel like we don’t have a grasp on our own life and sometimes I think it can lead to forgetting who we are. Things happen to individuals that leave them doubting themselves and it’s in those moments that I want to reach out and say “No! You are literally amazing!!” The issue is that Satan is so keen to tearing us down. I have had several moments where I don’t believe in myself, I am critical of how I look, and I am left unmotivated to do anything.
Whether it’s a relationship ending, a self-conscious issue, or even a rejection from something, life tends to overwhelm truth and distort it from our view. The secret however is this: GOD defines our purpose and our worth. God formed us each so differently and uniquely and he puts these gifts into us and we run with those. But after a while of running we are so quick to forget who gave us those abilities.
Beautiful ladies and handsome gentleman! We have to realize where our worth comes from! It’s a big struggle and I can forget SO often, but it’s worth it (bahahaha get it? Wow). When I find myself fully in my word and in prayer with my God, I am more loving, awake, and altogether happy. I urge you to re-shift your focus and remember how God defines you.
So how do we do that? Pray more. Love more. Become even more grateful. And when you doubt yourself again, go back to prayer.
Psalm 139: 13-15 says:
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
God was whispering truth to us since the beginning! So I encourage you to try and find just one way today to trace your worth back to Jesus. Go represent love in the best way possible because in the end, it isn’t about us but about our Savior.
(Although that was scatter brained, it was really pressed on my heart. Hopefully that was able to reach someone 🙂 )
