Finding self-worth

It can be hard to be in a job where you feel your tasks are remedial, when you wonder if your contributions are meaningful and feel that you are in a job hierarchy. The fact is our value and identity is always in God. God has created each on of us perfectly, full of poise, grace, assurance of God, good. We can never be diseased, hurt, belittled, insignificant, too important and not important enough. God sees us as secure in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you

Wow. Before you ever came to know this planet, God knew you AND you knew Him. God knows you, loves you, maintains you, sustains you.

the kingdom of God is within you [in your hearts] and among you [surrounding you]

Where does your true worth and value come from? It comes from seeing and knowing who you really are as a child of an infinite God.

Sometimes the most meaningful opportunities in life pay the least or not at all. So, what is a way that we can know our efforts are really valuable?

By following Christ Jesus’ example. Looking for some words that you can say to lift someone up; giving a smile; seeing the best in someone.

Happiness consists in being and in doing good; only what God gives, and what we give ourselves and others through His tenure, confers happiness: conscious worth satisfies the hungry heart, and nothing else can.

You have the gift of seeing the face of God in each person you meet. By radiating the spiritual qualities you inherently have, such as grace, poise, beauty, wisdom, foresight, trustworthiness, patience, honesty you will make a difference.

Not only will expressing God’s qualities glorify God, it will bless you enabling you to feel your oneness with Christ, Truth.

let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.

Wherever you are, in whatever you do, be a force for good by glorifying God.

He provides everything we need

We’ve all been there. I want this or I want that. The relentless wants and woes that come with humans.

How can we resist the pull of materialism to feeling God’s perfect grace moving in us and providing everything we need?

bridge-896027_960_720I’ve had times when I KNOW God is leading and guiding me. I don’t doubt it because I know with every fiber of my being that it is right — that Love is leading me. And it works out great, so much better than I could have planned.

Perfect peace. Assurance. Divine love and care. That’s what God’s leading feels like.

So, how do we feel that? How do we attain a recognition of the divine presence and direction on a more consistent basis?

We can start by understanding God has already created perfection. We aren’t mini creators doing His work for Him.

His work is done, and we have only to avail ourselves of God’s rule in order to receive His blessing…
heart-947440_960_720Avail ourselves of God’s rule — God’s law of harmonious action guiding and governing everyone’s lives. The impartial love of God for ALL!

Only one law, one rule: God’s law of infinite supply, abundance, happiness, love and joy for everyone, everywhere. No one is outside of it.

As we see that God’s infinite love and goodness is there for all humanity (Jesus’ parables remind us that we are all neighbors) we see that it is present for us, too, and we can then claim it and experience it.

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
