Worth it all
Worth: equivalent in value to the sum or item specified
There is a price pinned to everything you touch nowadays. Food, clothes, relationships. It doesn't have to be physical money. It can come in the form of actions or emotions. You pay a price for everything you do.
Because of this constant price tag, we begin to evaluate ourselves. We put a price on who we are and the things we are capable of doing. We buy into so much junk, gossip and lies, that we feel like we have no value left.
You feel like you aren't enough for anyone, even yourself...
If you don't have the newest clothes, you won't fit in with the popular girls..... You can't show up to the dance in that old, run down car...... There's no way you're going to get that job because so and so has a much better resumé that you..... You only have an associates degree, so you're not gonna amount to very much....
Why do we believe these things? Why do we let people get to us?
We want constant affirmation from others. All we want is to fit in.
But did you know that you were born to stand out? God didn't create us to be just like everyone else. All of those doubts and fears have price tags on them. Very high ones. However, it's not worth it. It's not worth paying hundreds of dollars on new clothes just to please someone else. It's not worth the years of anxiety. It's not worth destroying your health.
I am here to tell you that you are enough. You are MORE than enough.
God tells us that we are worth far more than all the rubies and pearls in the world (Proverbs 31:10). Can you imagine that??
Never put a price tag on anything in your life. There's no need for the extra weight because God bears that weight for us. Live life with your heart abandoned. Free from distraction, doubts, and fears.
You are beautiful. You are strong. You are loved.
You are worth it all.
