The Truth About Yourself

Before, I used to think I was weak. I was not proud of myself. I looked down on myself because of my imperfections. I did not consider myself beautiful, talented, significant, or important. I had a broken family. I was lacking. I envied people. I thought I was not loveable or likable.How do you see yourself? Do you see how wonderful you are? Because that is how God, the perfect and almighty God, made you. In fact, He made you in His very own image. Because of this, you are infinitely valuable. It’s true! You have a beautiful place and a unique position in this world. You are pleasantly unique. You are dear to God, and you are loveable.If you have been drowning in doubts about your worth, these are lies from the devil. Do not believe him! Do not fall for his deception. You can know with certainty that you are precious because Jesus came to save you. He died and rose from the dead to rescue you from sin and death. If you’ve put your trust in Jesus, you are perpetually blessed, and you are a gift to many. Believe the Spirit of God when He says you are a beautiful person.Yes, there are ways we all fail, but you are still loved beyond measure. Believe the truth that you were made in God’s image and likeness. You are a child of God. And through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can learn from, obey, and enjoy spending the day with God—your Father—and you can show His love to others. Embrace the truth that you are accepted and forgiven by God, and therefore you can forgive others. Through Jesus, you can be strong, compassionate, and able to help others. The truth is that Jesus lives in you. Believe it and live it, for that is who you really are. That is the truth about yourself. • Golda Dilema• Do you struggle to love yourself the way Jesus loves you? You can ask Jesus to show you how much you are worth to Him.
