- What is my age:
Should I clue him in that the straight long hair he loves so much is nothing but a wig.
Often we put our self-worth in the type of clothes that we wear, the type of car that we drive, our accomplishments, our financial status, our relationship status, our talents, our appearance, etc. If you do this you will end up feeling broken and depressed. Allow it to come from the perfect merit of Christ. Christ is the answer to all self-worth issues that may arise in your life. You are more to God than you can ever imagine! God created man in His own image. As a result of the fall we are all broken.
Through the first Adam the image of God was tarnished. Through the second Adam Jesus Christ believers have been redeemed. The gospel reveals your value. You are to die for! Christ bore our sins on the cross. Though we struggle at times due to the effects of the fall.
Through Christ we are being renewed daily. We were once a people plagued by that broken image, but through Christ we are being transformed to the perfect image of our Creator. For those struggling with self-esteem we must pray for the Lord to continue to conform us into His image. This takes our focus off of self and puts it on the Lord. We were made for God not the world. The world says we need this, we need this, we need this. We were made for Him, we were made in His image, and we were made for His will.
We have a purpose. We are fearfully and wonderfully made! The world teaches that we need to work on ourselves and that is the problem. How can the problem be the solution? We have now received this reconciliation through Him. Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one manand death through sin, in this way death spread to all men, because all sinned. Psalm I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made ; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Romans Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mindthat by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
The world will never comprehend. Even you will never comprehend the great love that God has for you!
That is why we must look Finding self worth in god Him. You are not in the world for nothing. Your life is not meaningless. Before creation God created you for Himself. He wants you to experience His love, He wants to spend time with you, He wants to tell you the special things of His heart. He never intended for you to look for confidence in yourself.
Before the world was created God looked forward to you. He anticipated to have time with you and to reveal Himself to you. He waited in anticipation! Christians are the bride of Christ. Christ is the bridegroom. Now imagine the love of Christ!
Our love grows dull, but the love of Christ never wavers. Before creation the Lord had many plans for you. He wanted to share His love with you so you would love Him more, He wanted to remove your doubts, your feelings of worthlessness, your feelings of hopelessness, and more. We have to get alone with God! We struggle with so many things, but the one thing we need we neglect! We choose things that never wanted us, that want to alter us, and that never satisfy us over a God who died to be with us! We choose them over a God that says you are wonderfully made.
Ephesians For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will —to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. Romans But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit —fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. The cross speaks louder than your words, your doubts, your accomplishments, and your possessions.
Will i suffer more if i follow jesus?
The Creator of the Universe died for you on the cross! Jesus shed His blood. God has not forsaken you. He hears you!
You feel forsaken, but on the cross Jesus felt forsaken. He has been in your position and He knows how to comfort you. You are not your past mistakes, you are not your past sins. You have been redeemed by the blood. Keep on pressing on. God is working through your struggles. He knows!
God knew you and I were going to be messy. Christ has become our righteousness. He did what you and I could never do. You were bought with the precious blood of Christ. Not only has God chosen you, not only has God saved you, but God is working in your struggles to make you more like Christ. You were bought with the blood of Christ.
Now press on. Keep on fighting! Go to the Lord, confess your sins, and press on! God is not done working yet! If you could have saved yourself by your performance, then you would have never needed a Savior! Jesus is our only claim.
He thought about you when He died on the cross! He saw you living in sin and He said I want him. He was forsaken so you could be forgiven.
Even if you tried to run away from Him you would never be able to get away from Him! His love would catch you, cover you, and bring you back! His love is going to keep you to the end. He sees every tear, He knows your name, He knows the of hairs on your head, He knows your faults, He knows every detail about you. Hold on to Christ.
Therefore honor God with your bodies. Romans He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all— how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
Can i follow my new heart?
Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one.
