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.

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!

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.

“Every Little Helps”

T. S. Arthur’s poem: “Every Little Helps”

WHAT if a drop of rain should plead–
“So small a drop as I
Can ne’er refresh the thirsty mead;
I’ll tarry in the sky?”

What, if the shining beam of noon
Should in its fountain stay;
Because its feeble light alone
Cannot create a day?

Does not each rain-drop help to form
The cool refreshing shower?
And every ray of light, to warm
And beautify the flower?
