Following is a re-post of the most read post of this blog so far.
I am seriously humbled that it has touched so many.
I have added one more verse at the end.
Please feel free to share your thoughts as well.
Just so you know.
You ARE worth it.
You, my friend are bought with a price.
God loved you before there was you.
Does not matter one iota what others may say.
Oh and by the way ~ that icky stuff you say about yourself?
It is vitally important that we only say what God says about us.
Everyone has to begin somewhere,
So I’ve placed a couple of good starters near the end of this post.
Please join me again soon.
It will be a safe place for your heart.
Psalm 139:13-16 (NIV) For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Isaiah 55:8 (NIV) “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.
Jeremiah 31:3 (NIV) The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
Matthew 13:45-46 (NASB)
A Costly Pearl
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, and upon
finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble,
whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable
—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—
think about such things.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me,
or seen in me—put it into practice.
And the God of peace will be with you.
