Ugh, my first thought when I looked in the mirror lately. My weight loss is on track, but my face is broken out and when I look in the mirror I just see blah. My child, know your worth whispers my Father. Stop seeking it from others and know I formed you and cherish you. You are beautiful and I created you in my image. Last night at an event the speaker and author Sharon Patrick commented on my smile. This morning I was called beautiful. Once again Poppa, you have my attention and I’m listening!
Yesterday I bought myself some pretty yellow flowers and said sometimes you just have to spoil yourself! I didn’t even realize it at the time, but I’m worth it. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in helping others that I lose myself. I definitely become so focused on “fixing” people that I tend to neglect myself and it’s not even my job to fix them. I can’t “fix” them, only God can do that. So here I sit this morning, reflecting on my worth.
God reminded me of Psalm 139:14, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” I am wonderfully made, you are wonderfully made! God took great care in making us, we are beautiful in His eyes. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” I usually stop there, but today the Lord took me to verses 12-13, “12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Are you calling upon me when you feel unworthy and ugly so that I can repair those thoughts and show you your worth? Are you calling on me daughter? The answer was no, I was just struggling inwardly.
My vision gets swayed by wrong thinking. My perception of myself causes me to waiver and feel inadequate. God doesn’t want that, know your worth daughter! Seek me, stay close to me. It’s so awesome how He knows what we struggle with before even telling Him and how He meets us at the point of that need. It may not be what you see in the mirror, you might be struggling with something else. Whatever it is, God already knows. He loves you and He wants you to know your worth. My worth is found in Him and the destiny He called me for. I am precious in his site and so are you! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
