A Friendly Reminder To Myself

My Worth is NOT in...

...What other people think of me.
...How much I weigh.
...How clean my house is.
...How well my kids behave.
...What other people say about me.
...How pretty I am.
...How smart I am.
...How funny I am.
...How many friends I have.
...How cute my clothes are.
...How successful I am.
...What kind of job I have.
...How much money I have.
...The mistakes I have made.
...How tall my laundry pile is.
...The good things I do (or do not do) for others.

Just to name a FEW.

My worth IS in...

...How GOD sees me!

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

Psalm 139:14

"You make everything GLORIOUS, what does that make me?!"

Everything Glorious by David Crowder Band
