A Woman's Worth
We are living in a day in time where many morals are diminishing. One of the most important morals is a person's self worth. Everyday I hear and see stories of women that are unaware of their value. This hurts me because I used to be one of them. I didn't know who I was or how much I was worth. Truth is, everyone on this Earth has been bought with a price. The kind of price that no one could ever repay. God sent his son, Jesus, to die on a rugged cross and pay the price for all our sins so that we may live eternally with him. The bible says, "For God *SO* loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever would believe would not perish but would have everlasting life."(John 3:16.) That, my friend, is the definition of love. God gave His best because He so loved this world. But what might be the problem today? I know that I was unaware of the love that God had for me. If you, who is reading this blog were the only person on this Earth, God still would've sent his son Jesus to die for you. That's how much he loves you.
There are many women today who are trying to fill a void in their hearts that can only be filled by God. I can recall broken relationships, heart aches and pain because of my choice to chase after people to fill this void in my life. It was like pouring water into a broken glass, impossible to become full. What I am saying is that there's a place for God in our hearts and there's a place for people in our hearts, and if they aren't prioritized correctly, much damage and disappointment will occur. See, I went through all of the unnecessary road bumps along the way to realize that no man can love me the way God can. Truth is, God knew how much I was worth, and I can imagine Him looking greatly disappointed in the decisions that I had made. I bet all God could think of was how much He loved me and wanted me to know and receive His love.
Finally, I was done with what the world had to offer me. I put an end to chasing after the artificial love from guys who didn't know how to love and respect me. I wanted God to be the center of my life. I knew that with Him I would be more than alright. I went running to my Heavenly Father to set me free from all of the bondage that I had picked up throughout my life. But does it have to be this way with you? I want you to know that you are a beautiful woman who is worth the wait. The bible refers to women as wisdom. God created women to be wise and to have virtue. Proverbs 3:15 reads, "She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her."
We are women who cannot be compared because we are so valuable.
Below is a Declaration that I say aloud to remind myself of who I am:
"God loves me and I receive His love.
I am beautiful and I love the skin that I'm in.
I love everything about me.
God has created me with a plan and a purpose.
I am as bold as a lion.
I walk with confidence, I speak with confidence, I am confident.
I know who I am and whose I am.
I am happy for today and I look forward to tomorrow.
I know that God has good thoughts of me.
He has a plan for me to succeed and not fail.
I let go of any hurt, anger and bad feelings against anyone.
I'm free to be me! "
I'm not sure where you are in your walk of life. Maybe you're at a place of confusion, and uncertain about accepting Jesus as your Lord and savior. I encourage you to take a step and place your trust in Him. I would like to invite you to make a decision that I have made that has changed my life completely for the better. ❤
Please, say this aloud with me:
"Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for loving me. Thank you for sending your son Jesus to die for me. I believe in my heart and I confess with my mouth that God raised Jesus from the dead for me. Thank you for wiping away my sins to be closer to you. I trust you with my life and every plan in it. Jesus come into my heart and have your way in my life.
I am saved in Jesus name."
I want you to know that all of Heaven is rejoicing on the behalf of your decision to follow Christ. ❤️
