Worth

Excuse this moment of therapy.

My worth is not ...

in how much I weigh

in my looks

in how good of a singer I am or am not

in how good of a speaker I am or am not

in how good of a mother I am or am not

in how good of a wife I am or am not

in whether or not my house is clean and decorated nicely

in how many friends I have or don't have

in my job performance

in how well I dress

in my image

in how much money I have

AND MOST OF ALL ...

in other people's opinions of me related to all these areas or how they view me.

My worth is in ...

knowing that God formed me in my mother's womb and everything He made was "good"

knowing that God, my Father, the Almighty Maker of Heaven and Earth calls me His daughter

knowing that I am a child of the King, the Most High

knowing that He has plans and a purpose designed especially for me

knowing that He loves me in spite of my sinful heart and flesh

knowing that He thinks I'm worth dying for.

Therapy session over.

EXCELLENT, excellent, excellent!!! I'm not very eloquent, so it goes w/o saying "I couldn't have said it better myself."

Beautiful... I think I need to read that everyday (at least once) and then read it to all my friends, and all three daughters... I hope you won't mind if I share this when appropriate.

I'm a Believer!
