What’s your worth?


Lately it’s been a struggle to get past the idea that I am not good enough. I know the truth but there are some weeks when you feel it deep in your soul. The weight of your sin, the disappointment in circumstances, the feeling of just not being good enough. Today I was reading, but my heart has been so broken I just had to stop in the middle and beg God to speak to me. The next chapter I came across these verses.
And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. (1 John 3:19, 20 KJV)
Only God knew how much I needed that reminder. My worth is found in him. Not my works, not what people think about me, or how they treat me. Not how good I am or how good or bad 😉 I look. It’s only in him. It’s not in my mommy skills, or my children, not in a clean house. Man it feels good to say that!!!
It’s not in any of my failure’s (though i have many) or accomplishments(not so many of those).
No matter what my heart tells me, I need to listen to the One who knows the truth.
I really needed that love note from my Father in heaven today.

  1. Oh to remember the true one we serve. Circumstances and people would not have such an effect on us. Thanks for the reminder…

  2. Gretchen, that was beautiful!! And so true! I have often needed that same reminder! Ephesians chapter 1 always reminds me how much about Him it is, I circled all the His and He’s, it’s pretty evident it’s all about Him! Love ya
