Here’s a beautiful quote for the day by an unknown and very wise author!
“Your value does not decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.”
Have you ever felt like your value increased or decreased based on what others thought of you?
While we may not readily admit to this, it’s a common ailment that plagues the heart. The reasons for these negative thoughts are too numerous to dive into here, and in light of God’s Truth fade to the background. All I can think about is how much God loves me, and how much He loves YOU. That love began even before He formed you in your mother’s womb, and has never ceased even until today. Psalm 139 describes His love for you and shares how highly valued you are to God. You are intricately and marvelously made, and despite what you or others think about yourself, the truth is—
you are God’s workmanship and the apple of His eye!
Pray the words of Psalm 139 and let them soak into your entire being until you can declare with God’s Word,
“Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made!” Amen.
Psalm 139:13-21 Taken from The Message translation of the Bible
Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.
Your thoughts—how rare, how beautiful!
God, I’ll never comprehend them!
I couldn’t even begin to count them—
any more than I could count the sand of the sea.
Oh, let me rise in the morning and live always with you!
Hope be with you!
