    Surely, you are living in purpose, and the value of who you are is not in what others think of you or me… The value is in the God who created everything for us and provides us with the very breath we breathe. I have learned how can someone see me clearly or the essence of me, when they can’t even see nor serve the creator… don’t ask the blind how I look and expect an answer that can hold true… thank you for sharing

      Hi poeticallyyoirs360,
      This is exactly what God has been speaking to my heart about. He is showing me how I have lived my life working so hard to “appear” perfect, completely co-dependent on others opinions, seeking my value and worth by what I can do to make others happy or by working SO hard to prove my worthiness. Learning to trust Him, Not from a place of trying to control the outcome but really seeking Him, in prayer, quiet time and reading His Word, and receiving His unending, everlasting love.

        Good for you!!! and Glory be to God! we are wonderfully made. We are so significant that he sent his only begotten son to die for us. That’s major, that tells me, I am significant and so is everyone. Good thing that God is faithful and he will finish the good work he began in us… peace. I pray you have a fulfilling and peaceful week
