I’m Worth WHAT?!

unnamed

Yes it is!

What an amazing piece of information. To know that my worth is not based on the job that I have, the kind of wife and mother I am, the number of friends I have, or the way that I look from day to day, or any other worldly ideal I attach myself to. My FATHER in heaven determined my worth long before I was even thought of. HE made sure that the life I lived would ultimately lead me back to HIS one true vision of HIS daughter. You are loved, your are covered, your are beautiful and you are worth it.

I was recently told that how I see my self worth directly reflects how I love my husband. I was asked the question, “Can you pretend like you are crazy mad in love with your husband for 8 days?” “Pretend to the point that it is how you truly see him?” I thought about it and it sounded nice and like a fun experiment, but the reality was and is that I questioned it’s validity. Why would I do such a selfless act for someone else and why aren’t men asked to love hard and free for a certain amount of time? It was in those questions I was told that until I understood, accepted, and walked in my glorious worth I would love up to a point. was told I would continue to live the life of a I’ll do that, but I won’t do that for anyone, not even him type of wife.For me it would always be, “Well yes, I can do it, but once something (a word, statement, facial expression) triggered my doubts I would immediately cut the love short. It all made sense and it all hurt. I want to be the wife God calls all women to be.

I mean it makes the statement, “In order to love someone else, you have to love yourself,” a truth for me. In order for me to deem my husband worthy of my complete love, I have to deem myself worthy of GOD’s love. Isn’t that something we all struggle with from time to time. Wondering how a GOD of infinite power could consider us priceless. We can rest assured that HIS words are true.fearfully

So my challenge begins. First to become one with my worthiness and second to love on my husband until he becomes nauseous! I pray GOD’s strength, courage, favor and victory for my journey.
