you are worthy


Ephesians 1:5

Having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 

There have been times in my life when I was called worthless, selfish, a drain on the family, lazy, inconsiderate, and many words that are to inappropriate to mention here. I will honestly admit that I am not perfect. I make mistakes, just like everyone else. I don’t deserve to be judged for every little mistake I make. I don’t deserve to be criticized for doing something differently than someone else. I don’t deserve to be spoken to like I’m stupid and unworthy. I have been called pathetic and a bad mother. I know that despite my flaws that I am none of those things.

Remember the old rhyme, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”? That is so not true! Words hurt! I know from experience how words can cut into the very core of your being. After awhile, you start to think that maybe you are that person. You start to question everything you do, every decision you make. Every negative word against you chips away at your heart, your spirit, until you are just a shell of who you were meant to be.

If you identify with anything written in this post, let me assure you, dear friend, that God NEVER wants you to feel unworthy or unloved. It was God’s will that we become His children. As long as you believe that Jesus died for your sins and paid the ultimate sacrifice, then you have been adopted by God. You are part of God’s family and He loves you! The Bible is full of truth about His feelings for us. Check it out and see for yourself that you are fearfully and wonderfully made(Psalm 139:14).

Before you let the negative words of someone else bury themselves in your heart, find the truth in the Bible. The truth of how God feels about you is there and His opinion is the only one that counts. Stay close to the one who loves you, my friend. Abide in Him and He will never depart from you.
