A skinny Mom.
Maybe someone with a lot more computer savvy.
What about the blogger that expresses herself so well.
Basing our self-worth on others accomplishments can be a constant source of self-degradation. We can’t base our self-worth on others accomplishments…
Our self-worth is based on:
Our ability to be a little better today than we were yesterday.
The quality of our heart, mind, and soul.
‘Ultimately we are only in competition with ourselves. We must reach deep down into our souls and call forth our God given intelligence and capabilities.’ Elder James E Faust
Satan attacks our minds and identity. If he can convince us that we are of little or no worth, or that we’re not as good as so-and-so, then he has won a big battle.
Who are we really?
We are the literal offspring of a Heavenly Being, also known as the King of Kings…God is the Father of our spirits!
*Acts 17:29 For as much then as we are the offspring of God. (KJV)
*Hosea 1:10 Ye are the sons (and daughters) of the living God. (KJV)
We are literal Kings and Queens in the making.
*Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. (KJV)
Here are some questions I'd like you to contemplate:
• What would happen to you and your relationships with others if you really KNEW you were born to be a Queen?
• Would you treat your spouse differently knowing that he was born to become a King?
• How about your children (especially our teens and our children that give us extra challenges). What would happen if we saw at them the way our Father in Heaven sees them…Heirs to His throne.
*Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified together. (KJV)
* Galatian’s 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son (daughter); and if a son (daughter), then an heir of God through Christ. (KJV)
Heavenly Father knows our hearts and if we follow the promptings of the Spirit, we can gain a true picture of our potential…we will understand our true identity. I understand that we all have bad days, days (especially PMS and Menopausal days) where we don’t feel good about ourselves. If we recognize these are just passing moments and not the REAL ME, then these DAYS will have little effect on our self-esteem.
Encourage yourself more!
Find fault with yourself less!
Look in the mirror every day...
and say “I love you, I love you just the way you are. I really, really do.” Look straight into your eyes and say this until you begin to believe it and then say it again!
Now is a good time to share some things that you have done RIGHT! List them in the comment section. This will solidify in your own mind that you are doing a great job!
You are awesome!
