I come here and see so many struggle, and I pray daily for all of you. One of the biggest things I see here, as I have seen in myself, is our struggle with self-worth. I pray the scriptures below will touch someone, and give them the power to see themselves as God see's them.

GOD'S VIEW OF OUR WORTH
John 3;16 For God so loved the world he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 8:28-29 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, and have been called according to his purpose. For those God forknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.

KNOWING GOD IS WHAT MAKES LIE MEANINGFUL:
Ephenisans 1:17-19 I keep asking that the God our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Sprit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of heart may be englightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of this glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength.

Jeremiah 9:23-24 This is what the Lord says: "Let not the sie man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight," declares the lord.

WE ARE NOT TO FALL INTO A TRAP OF RELYING ON SELF.
2Corinthians 1:8-9 We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.

Hi SS...so very tru, adn even though I know all of these beautiful verses that refer us back to an identity in JC, I still struggle so much with self-worth and my true identity in JC. I allow my job to define me, my performance, my productivity, and I am even dumb enough to compare myself to others...I even teach such subjects to other adults!!!, and help them see that their identity is not based on these mentioned here in my post.

Sure would be great to study this further for anyone interested? This is a subject that I know in my head, but my actions prove otherwise. To others I appear to be one that has it altogether, level headed, but on the inside at times I am screaming, because I am not familiar with letting someone love me unconditionally as God does. It is also difficult for me to realize that it is all about Him and for Him, as I know it is, but as a child it was never about me, but always about someone else, and even today, my sister does not understand how I could have anything else to do, or why I would be busy or have a life!!

Off my soapbox now, but your thread got me to thinking.....

Excellent Subject SS, thank you!!! I believe if we all knew our self-worth in the Lord, we won't have jerks any more on earth, we will have heaven on this globe!

I am glad this was value to someone, I see so much pain, and want to help others see the value in themselves, and that they are valuable to God!
