What Are You Worth?

Self-worth and having love for yourself, not in an egotistical way but in a way you understand you are created in His Image and greatly valued by Him is incredibly crucial on how you navigate through your life. 

If you don’t believe you’re worth anything and don’t love yourself and blame yourself for the majority of conflicts or events in your life, it can affect you emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually, causing you to be swept along the rough seas, struggling, treading water to sustain yourself in some manner. 

But if you believe you’re valued and worth as much as anyone else, your life most likely will take the path of a healthy view of all you experience, an inner strength, and true understanding of love.

Hope

Orthodox Jesus Prayer sunset

One of my favorite movies that I’ve watched so many times over the years, I’ve lost count, is Hope Floats.

In a time when hope is needed more than ever, I wanted to share a few words, quotes, and a song I’ve been listening to this afternoon that moves me to tears, as it’s so beautiful.

First off, know that you were created by a Trinity, Who is Love, Peace, and Hope.

He fashioned you with the breath of His Spirit, the soil of His created planet, and in His own Image.

You are higher than every plant, animal, and nature’s grandest and most beautiful mountains, seas, and deep, rich forests.

You are higher than the angels.

You are the conduit between the immaterial and material.

All because of Him. His Love.

This pandemic will pass.

This economic depression will pass.

We will meet on the other side of it all with the hope of better things to come.

Live in the Light, Love, and Peace of Him.

 

“I was reborn when I was broken,

I wouldn’t believe, I wouldn’t believe, no,

Been through a storm, no use in hoping,

That you would come rescue me,

Somehow your love set me free.

And I, I can let my life pass me by,

Or I can get down and try,

Work it all out this lifetime,

Work it on out this time.

I can let it all pass me by,

Or I can get down and try,

Work it all out this lifetime, lifetime…”

– by singer, Maxwell
