You Are Indeed Worthy!

Have you ever found yourself accepting less than you know is the best for your life?  Have you noticed this trait being repeated in those around you?  Why is it that this occurs?  Do you know why?  I believe that it happens because we believe ourselves unworthy of richness in our lives.  We do not see ourselves as the Creator sees us, a treasure beyond words.  If we could but get a glimpse of what our Creator sees, our lives would be so much greater, so much more fulfilled.  This is not to say that we are incredible in an arrogant manner.  Those who are truly great are usually humble for they know the Source of their talents and abilities.  A suggestion to ourselves perhaps?  Set aside a few moments and take a good hard look at you.  Try and see yourself as Gods’ creation and see how He would see you.  Bear in mind that you are created in His image.  I would say that this statement should tell you something of yourself, yes?  Now, if you were able to do this, then do one more thing please.  Celebrate yourself for a bit!  Not in a proud or boastful fashion. But rather in a way that celebrates what lies within you. Try it!  Do it now!

  1. I think for me…..I do not believe that I am worthy of richness! I feel that if I was to feel that way that I would be selfish! I think that is why I have always put others first and myself last! I am sure that that is not correct……but that is how I feel! It is difficult for me to as you say, Celebrate my self. God still has a lot of work to do with me!!!! I have at least gotten to the point where I don’t think badly of myself anymore.. when you have people tell you lies all your life, it takes a while to stop believing the lies especially when there is no one to tell you any different. That being said, I do not feel sorry for myself, but I still feel selfish if I think of myself first! Feelings are neither right or wrong they just are, I suppose in time, I will look at things differently, but for now I still feel that way. Thank you again for another soul searching blog!!! 🙂

    • A thought for you here, Deborah. God has no difficulty in putting you first on His list and has no trouble in thinking of you first, yes? So given that, can you see perhaps that is not so bad to consider your own feelings on a given thing and make that a priority? Doing so is not a act of selfishness. Rather it is an indication of self-worth and a reflection of the knowledge that God has created within you a wonderful person. Besides, the more one values themself, the more they are of value to others. This is true, you know. Something to consider…….
