You are loved.
You are worthy.
You are enough.
Your best is sufficient.
You are God’s beloved.
You are a child of the King.
You are loved.
These words are true. I know they are true. These are the words written about you (and me) in the Bible. You are God’s creation, his good and loving handiwork, created for beautiful things. You are not meant to live in fear or anxiety. You are meant to live as one who is adored more than any of us could imagine.
These words may not be what the world tells us. They may not even be words you consider for yourself. We sometimes speak them for others, but what about the one we see in the mirror each morning? That one is enough and loved and worthy. In a world which always seems to demand more of us, God calls us to rest in him. We are given direction to come and experience his goodness. We are loved beyond measure simply because we are God’s.
I think we can all use this reminder. The voices from around us can seem so much louder than the Voice inside of us. God in us tells us we hold much value.
As we begin this week, may you be reminded that you are loved. Live in it. Sit with it. Allow God’s love to wash over you. Move forward knowing you are worth more than you can even imagine.
26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
