Girlfriends in God

Yep, 2 in one day! This is to powerful not to share! Please go read here, cause friends, it is powerful and SO, SO true!!

Here are just some snippets that really struck me as true:

Many of us feel worthless. Why? We’ve felt ignored, invisible, insignificant, useless, undesired, ugly, unloved, or forgotten. We girls are emotional, broken in many ways. Great portions of our identity and of our personal value are wrapped into combustible packages of emotion…how we feel about this or that. The truth is, our worth has nothing to do with our feelings.

What I do know is this: because of Jesus Christ, I’m a woman of highest worth. Not because of anything else.

Hear this, friend: feelings of worthlessness are from Satan himself. It burns me up that the enemy has such a strong grip on God’s daughters in this area. We need to associate the word worthless with the word lie. That’s exactly what it is, a big, fat lie!

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

You are precious and highly valuable in the eyes of the One who sees. And you never, never, never have to worry about being on anyone's bargain rack again.

Are you held captive by feelings of worthlessness? Spend a few moments in prayer and ask God to reveal truth to your heart about how He sees you.

Praise the Lord, I am not currently!! The times that I feel worthless are when I am struggling with depression. Thankfully, that is not the case currently!

Print or write out this verse: “I will not forget you. Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands” (Isaiah 49:15-16, NASB). Set it to memory and allow it to serve as a reminder that you are precious to God.
