Your Worth, In Him
“You won’t find it in there,” He sternly nudged.
“You never will. What you are looking for cannot be found in your phone. In social media. In the opinion of others. In this world period."
"Ugh, I know, God. But, it is so incredibly hard sometimes. The "likes" and "loves" give you almost an instant gratification. But, getting lost in scrolling through the seeming perfection of others is soul-crushing. It's almost like an addictive game of tug-o-war."
"It's not there, Child. And it never will be. Your worth cannot be measured in this world. I made it that way. There is no way to put value on a creation that is so absolutely priceless. You are who I created you to be, and never for once do you need to worry about being someone else.
If you really want to find your worth, My daughter, stop looking in places that hold no value. Two of the enemy's very favorite weapons are jealousy and comparison. Such easy ways to pit My children against one another.
What you are looking for only I have the honor of holding. And you will never find it anywhere except My heart and My Word.”
"I know, God, but..."
"No 'but', My Daughter. Have you not read My promises? THAT is where you will find your worth. Your beautiful, hand-sewn, one-of-a-kind, love-laced, worth."
For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14)
My unfailing love for you will not be shaken. (Psalm 54:10)
"My Child, I have loved you with an everlasting love, and NOTHING in this world compares to that." (Jeremiah 31:3)
