There is this growing need inside my soul and my heart to know even deeper the love God has for me. To find my true calling in life. To know my worth. To know that who I am is beautiful and loved.
Constantly, I am fighting a battle back and forth about who the world says I am and who God says I am (I am sure that I am not the only one). In the end, it is God who determines my worth.
There is an abundant need for YOU in this world, I cannot express this enough. I am constantly playing this through my mind, day in and day out because it is so easy, SO EASY, to believe the lies that this world is feeding us. Keeping your head clear and knowing the truth is way easier said than done because it requires a lot of effort and it becomes tiring at times. That is when you ask for help from Jesus, asking that he will continue to give you strength to remain true to the identity he has called on you and asking that he will continue to prepare you for the battle against the enemy.
There is an abundant need for YOUR contribution to the kingdom…
YOUR thoughts and words and artistic expressions…
YOUR exact brand of beautiful || Lysa TerKeurst
When you feel as if the world is judging you, remember that it is only God who can judge you. When you feel unworthy and unmeasurable to what/who you are “looking up to” or who you follow on social media, remember that it is only God who defines your worth.
I know, easier said than done. Every time someone other than God tries to tell you that you are unworthy, unfit for use, unmeasurable, unloved…hit right back with the words, “God says that I am.” When you continue to reiterate truth into your life, your outlook, perspective, and mindset begin to change and you will finally see what God sees in you and all of the noise and chatter of the world will grow strangely dim.
