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.

Luke 17:21 AMPC

Thought of the day

I love to pray with these healing words from this beautiful hymn by Peter B. Allen . . .

You are God’s purpose,
His great design.
Beautiful, blameless,
His child divine.
Holding your thought to the good and the true,
Spirit will form you anew.
Rise up and walk!
God made you free, born of His liberty.
Carefree and strong,
you are His song,
perfect for all to see.

Peter B Allen, Rise Up, Christian Science Hymn 453:1

Such power comes to our consciousness when we claim, accept and live these ideas!

We are immeasurable goodness expressed!

Humans love to measure things.

dawn-190055_960_720We measure our bodies. We measure our income. We measure our life expectancy.

Are there things that we can’t measure? Yes, and the most meaningful is infinite Spirit.

Spirit is the source of your identity. The real you. And you can not be measured!

You are infinite just like your Father-Mother Creator. You are incorporeal just like your Father-Mother God. You are at one with Her Being, and you reflect everything that She is!

How’s that for a measurement? It’s infinite!

Sometimes we get fooled into thinking that the things we do make us valuable. But our identity is already created in the image and likeness of God, and that’s priceless! So, next time you get trapped into thinking how many Facebook likes you get determines your value; or how much money you make; or how many years you’ve been on this planet — none of these give you real value. We all have the same value and it’s immeasurable!

We can never lose the ability…

We can never lose the ability to glorify God.

We all feel the desire to be valuable and useful — to feel that our life is needed and making a positive difference.

Is it really possible to feel that in any job? In every place we live? How do we sustain a sense of purpose all the time?

He [God] has mercy upon us, and guides every event of our careers. He is near to them who adore Him.

image

Every moment, with every thought, is the opportunity to know and glorify God.

God is infinite! God is not more present in one place than another. We are as one with God right here, right now, as we ever can be.

Are you looking for a change in circumstances? Look to God for a change in thought!

A new outlook, a new understanding of God, can refresh, motivate and sustain a higher sense of purpose.

The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

You are the living witness to God. God’s Spirit is living in you, moving in you. You have the right to be fearless and care-free.

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.

Cultivate a sense of awe — an awe-inspiring awareness — of how God is loving and caring for you today.

Employment/jobs

You are loved…you are worthy!

It may be tempting to think that your worth and value are tied up in your job.

What if you don’t have a job? Or what if your performance is lower than you’d like because of a particular set of circumstances?

You can still feel loved and valued regardless of your job and even if you are out of work.

You work/business do not determine your success.

You determine the success of your work/business.

You have worth and value because you are deeply loved and that’s how God made you.

You are a child of God, not made up of DNA or a by-product of your parents.

Your worth and success are already built-in — they are inherent in what you are.

You are the manifestation of God’s abundance, God’s wealth, God’s prosperity.

God is overflowing with joy and harmony, and you are the manifestation of that!

So don’t let the world —that evil mind— tell you that you are unworthy or unloved for even a second.

Shut the door on that thought! You don’t have to believe it!

You are holy, pure, loved, beautiful and free right now.

Love and feel loved!

“Children are God’s most precious gift”.

As a mother, I agree wholeheartedly.

As a spiritual healer, I know we are ALL God’s precious gifts. God doesn’t seen us in terms of age — as used up or past our expiration date.

We are EACH God’s most precious gift everyday!

He/She created us for a unique purpose — a unique combination of Her qualities (grace, wisdom, purity, joy, etc).

“Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12:31)

Seeing the value of and loving others reflects that same value and love back to you.  It is actually the love dwelling in your heart for others that enables you to feel loved!

So the more you love, the more loved you will feel.

The same rule applies for our children — because we feel love pouring out to them, we feel loved in return  for the opportunity to get to be with them and because of the love dwelling in our hearts.

It’s the law of the reciprocity of love!

Reblog: Garden of Gratitude

It’s so easy to get caught up in focusing on the negative, or all the things “wrong” around us. This blog post illustrates how valuable it is to get caught up in the good around us, instead.

 

Garden of Gratitude

by Patrick Collins

…He told me that on his morning trip next door four days after he began ‘deadheading”, as he gazed at the pots he noticed how brilliant and colorful the geraniums were. He suddenly realized that he had spent the first part of the week focusing on the dead flowers, looking intently for the “dead and gone” and what he could “bury”.   He realized that he had overlooked the beauty of the entire garden, and each individual plant by looking for death instead of life. He became incredibly GRATEFUL for life and being. Read more
