You have to know your worth, whether others are convinced you have any or not. If I placed my worth in the hands of other people and how they decided to view me, I would be on some shaky ground. Luckily, my worth is not placed in the hands of man, but God himself and if it was not for his grace, I would not be who I am and what I am today.
As individuals, we are valuable and all have purpose in our lives whether a person decides you are valuable or not. We typically seek acceptance from others and sometimes validation, and that can create people bondage. What if they do not like me? I wonder if they will be accepting of me despite if I have flaws or fail. You cannot place your self confidence in any other persons hands but God. By focusing on his will and how he desires your life to be designed, you could never fail. God does not promise that there will not be trials and tribulations but he encourages us to lean into him in these times. Romans 8:28 teaches us that ALL(good and bad) things works together for the GOOD for those (yes even you!) according to HIS purpose. Not a man you desire to like you, not your boss for a promotion, but God. It takes the pressure off of trying to become what someone else would think we would need to be. You have a father, his name is God, he has a son named Jesus and those are the only two you need to seek.
As a wonderful blogger stated in her blog unashamed growth, “Don’t ever argue with someone over your worth. Don’t ever try to work to show someone you are worth love, respect, honor, or good things… God clearly believes in his work. Be confident in who you were created an the benefits that come along with it.”
So put your efforts into getting to know God and his Son, there is nothing but peace and prosperity on this side of eternity. Redirect your focus. I hope this can encourage and benefit some person out there.
