Today, I want to encourage and remind all of you beautiful women that you are worthy to be loved, to feel beautiful, to have great friends, to be apart of fun opportunities, and you are most importantly made worthy through God’s forgiveness to go to Heaven!
Many of us have days were we get down on ourselves because of possibly something negative we did or just because our self esteem is very low that day. I want to remind you all that we make mistakes! We are only human, so we make bad decisions sometimes that we can learn from so that we do not make those impulses again. Just because we make mistakes doesn’t mean we can’t ask for forgiveness. You can! Through the grace of God you can be forgiven and God forgets that your sin even happened!
Wouldn’t it be lovely if our families and friends could forget our mistakes once we ask for forgiveness? I want to encourage you all to not feel disappointed if someone chooses to not forgive or holds a grudge against you. Take the opportunity to attempt to make things right, but if you have done all you can and this person won’t forgive you it is time for you to forgive yourself! Forgiving yourself is very important so that you feel worthy of God’s love and others love around you! Sometimes we loose relationships because of things we have done, but I want to remind you that we are not perfect! Do not stress yourself out to be perfect; God does not expect perfection from us! It is okay to make mistakes, as long as we learn from them and choose not to do them again!
Ephesians 4:26 “In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.”
Girls can get the reputation of being very judgmental of each other, but it is up to us to break this cycle. All of us girls are worthy and deserving to be treated fairly. We are called to love others just as God loves us, and this includes loving yourself. No matter what others say, God says you have massive worth! God loves you and has an AMAZING plan for your life. Never forget your worth and the worth of others around you. Build each other up, don’t tear each other down! You all are worthy!
Ephesians 4:29 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
Remember this verse as you go through your week: We are called to love, not judge and this includes loving ourselves! Be aware of your worth!
Until Next Time,
