When you look around at society so much of our self worth is based on the culture around us, the work environment, what is in written in the media or visually produced. We struggle with never being smart enough, thin enough, financially secure and the list goes on. Constantly comparing ourselves to the person in the next cubicle or maybe even in the seat beside us in a religious setting. Why do we do that? Unhealthy beliefs are rooted in our deep cellular memories and the fall out of those beliefs causes incredible man made stress and illness.
People in our lives will always disappoint us at some point. We are human, and we make mistakes. We cannot take back words that are spoken but we can ask for forgiveness if we do hurt someone by our own insecurities.
I wish I had heard that statement above when I was young, not shaped and given false assessments of who I was, or what I could become because I didn't understand that Jesus Christ is the one who loves me more than anyone in human form. He accepts me with unconditional love. He suffered and died and rose for ME! He will always tell me the truth about myself, my life, my dreams and my possibilities because He wants me to make Him the most important person in my life. When you give Him that position, the abilitiy to love, accept and care for those in your life , your work, and your environment is so much more enriched.
A spouse or significant other can never fill that role. Many young women think that the answer to all their desires in life is wrapped up in the perfect mate. Won't happen! I have had an amazing life partner for over 30 years and love him completely BUT my relationship with my Lord has been the only relationship that gives me complete peace, purpose and desire to live.
So my hope for you is that you will find your self worth in the One who provides everything you need emotionally, physically and spiritually. The emptiness is no longer filled with human relationships, accumulation of material things or status. You will be transformed as you enter into a relationship with the One who created you......you have so much to gain and a guarantee of a relationship without regrets! Watch your self worth be based on something that will never disappoint you.
