This is a hard one for me to admit to the world, but here it goes. I don’t feel like I’m often worthy of much of anything – friendship…respect… importance…love. Because of these feelings I tend to either not go for things I can get, or I sabotage myself so I don’t get it. It’s an ugly cycle that I find myself wrestling with a lot, and I know I should think more highly of myself, but I don’t always get there.
The truth is I don’t feel worthy of much, but I really am worthy! “What’s the price of two or three pet canaries? Some loose change, right? But God never overlooks a single one. And he pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail—even numbering the hairs on your head! So don’t be intimidated by all this bully talk. You’re worth more than a million canaries” (Luke 12:7, MSG).
I stumbled across this song “Worthy” by Bettye Lavette a while back, and it crushed me because it speaks the truth: “But finally, finally a voice came through, oh, and said that I was worthy…worthy! What a thing to claim! Worthy, worthy! Ashes into flames…worthy!”
God is crazy about me and thinks I’m worth more than anything in this world. I’ll keep reminding myself of this everyday until I truly realize it and truly believe it in the deepest parts of my soul. I am worthy!
much love. sheth.
