God Values You Beyond Measure

By Georgia (Jo) Kent

“And God saw everything that He made, and, behold, it was very good.”
Genesis 1:31

God looked, He saw you, and He saw everything He created around you. He saw the reason for your being. He saw a specific need on this earth that you were to meet, He saw the full set of traits and abilities that you would need to have in order to complete your purpose for living. He knew what kind of environment you would need in order to develop your traits and abilities. God looked, and then, He created…He created YOU! And He looked at you and said; “This is good.”

It’s important that you learn to appreciate the way that God made you because other people are going to treat you the way that you treat yourself. If you have low self esteem, you will attract people who don’t treat you well. Several factors cause a loss of self esteem in women, such as abusive experiences, absorbed negative messages from others. Emotional, mental, physical, sexual and verbal abuse, all impact the way you feel about yourself. Many absorb negative cultural messages that erode their self esteem. Negative thinking is at the root of low self-esteem. It feeds your low self esteem and causes you to believe the criticism others make of you. It is vitally necessary to get out of the habit of thinking negatively.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalms 139:13-14

If you are suffering from low self-esteem, you may have difficulty opening up to others and it can cause you to withdraw and seclude yourself from healthy social interactions. The more isolated you become, the more likely your doubts and fears will become magnified. Low self esteem means poor confidence and that also causes negative thoughts which mean that you are likely to give up easily rather than face challenges. It has a direct bearing on your happiness and well-being. Self esteem is crucial and is a cornerstone of a positive attitude towards living. It affects how you think, act and even how you relate to other people. It allows you to live life to the potential that God designed you to be.

“And God saw everything that He made, and, behold, it was very good.”
Genesis 1:31

Satan wants you to focus on all your negetive emotions so that you won’t be able to see the beauty in yourself that God created in you. You can replace low self esteem and negative thoughts about yourself by switching your thoughts to God’s wonderful and perfect image of you!

Sweet Blessings
