This year has been one incredible year for me. I have managed to get engaged, graduate with my bachelor’s at a university, become an auntie, I am in the process of getting married, we are settling into our first home, and I was accepted into my Masters program at the university! After all these successes I cannot help but think- am I worthy of all these blessings? It is so strange how some years in our life can be filled with blessings, and others can be filled of heartbreak.
Our blessings and our heartbreaks are not based on whether God deemed us worthy to have an awesome year or not. Our God loves to bless us, but He also has to challenge us to grow in our relationship with Him, this can lead to us going through some situations that cause sadness, but bring knowledge.
So let me just say this first. YES, you are worthy of being blessed because God loves to bless us. This does not mean that you deserve every hardship you come across; we all go through rough times. Some rough times we bring on by our own actions, others happen for reasons of growth in our faith in God, but these hardships do not decrease your worth.
When you are blessed rejoice, and when you go through hardship- continue to rejoice, just like Job in the Bible. Your worth should not decrease because you have had a bad day, bad week, bad month, or a bad year. There are plenty of people who see you as very worthy of their love, attention, and joy. God sees you worthy enough that He let His son die for you, even though none of us deserved it. How incredible!
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.”
Remember today, no matter your past, present, or future. There is a God you can lean on. You deserve blessings, you deserve love, and you deserve to grow in your relationship with God. You deserve all these things because you are worthy.
Until Next Time,
