As I’m sitting on my couch, sippin’ on wine, ignoring responsibilities, and catching up on The Bachelorette…I decided to get out my computer and write a post that has been on my heart for a while now.
I have struggled in my past about not feeling worthy of love and over the past year I have realized that I wasn’t the only person struggling with this feeling and it’s honestly so heartbreaking. Society has made it so easy for us to think that our worth is based on what people think of us and how we perform, but I am here to tell you that society is wrong and that is a lie.
“The problem with society is that they do not see the worth and value in each and every life.”
If you get anything out of this…let it be this. You are not worthy of love because you have beautiful skin, healthy hair, toned abs, tan skin, best dressed, and body size. You are worthy of love because God says YOU are.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). God took His time to create you the way He wanted you and let me tell you, God does not make any imperfections. You are beautiful the way you are and do not let anyone tell you otherwise. You are more valuable than any jewel (Proverbs 3:15). You are loved far more than you could ever imagine.
This is commonly a struggle that comes and goes…so it’s important to remind yourself of your worth daily. Write verses or positive quotes on a sticky note, type them on your notes in your phone, set an encouraging password on your laptop, set an alarm to go off to remind you, do whatever you need to do to help you remember that you are so worthy of love and that society does not get to judge that!
You need to know how worthy you are. You need to do things that make you happy. Take time to find out who you are. Learn to love yourself a little more every second of every day.
To end this, I pray that you see yourself as someone who is worth great love.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
