Things have been bad in the self-esteem/self-identity department lately, especially given all the extra weight I'm still lugging around and given the impending end of my income generating days.
You know what though? I have a million and one reasons to feel bad about myself, but I am losing sight of the important thing in life- I'm a daughter of God, saved through the blood of Christ, and I am loved. I need to stop looking at myself through the dirty, cloudy glasses that I have been wearing, and need to focus on what God sees and who I am in Him.
Psalm 139:14 (New International Version)
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
