"Self Worth"

If we base our self worth on our ability to meet certain standards we often feel like failures. Then we fear failure, and sometimes we do fail, but God has a solution for the fear of failure. He has placed on us a value that’s secure and totally apart from our performance.

God’s solution is justification; which means a right standing before God through Jesus death on the cross which paid for our sins. This is one of the truths of God’s word that we can use against the false belief that "I must meet certain standards to feel good about myself."

I have at times had to deal with my value. The thing that has help to set me free of performance is to realize that although He could have made anyone, God chose to create me because he especially wanted me(Faye). He knew that at times I would fail and not make the best choices, but He still chose me to be.

When we have trusted in Christ for our salvation we can say, I am deeply loved; I am completely forgiven; I am fully pleasing; I am totally accepted by God; I am complete in Christ.

God has credited to you the righteousness of Christ. You can do nothing to add to or take away from what Christ did for you on the cross. As a result of your justification, you are completely forgiven and fully pleasing to God.

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." (Rom 5:1)

"My Valley"

While walking through this valley

All weary and worn.

While walking through this valley

All tattered and torn.

My heart is so lonely

My burdens are so heavy.

While walking through this valley

I feel so alone.

Are you in a valley

Do you feel alone?

Are you weary

All tattered and torn?

Reach out to Jesus He is always there

Reach out as I did and you will find

Him there.

Then look up as I did seeing Jesus at your side

And by His presence you will surely know

That God is there and loves you so!

"...I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope...". (Hosea:2:15)NIV
