What are you worth?
I saw this meme on Facebook the other day and I guess the question up above has been circling through my mind, making the rounds, collecting all the things that make me doubt my own worth.
Sometimes I struggle with knowing my own worth because I have done some very unworthy things in my life. I’m not going to go into detail for several reasons, but just know that your mistakes, though they may be different, are no worse than mine.
The only thing I really want to make clear to you today is this:
You cannot live your life now based on the mistakes of the past. Do not count the things that cannot be changed as the sum of your worth. It’s just not true. Your past does not define your future. What you do now, and now . . . and now. Every next second, every next breath, every next thought and what you do with it matter.
The past will never be changed; it will always be what once was. Don’t live in the regret of those moments. They remain in your mind, not to taunt you but to give you a clear path to avoid.
Ultimately, my worth is found not in myself or what I do, it is in the savior of my life, Jesus Christ, who has changed me and made me new. Trust me when I say that his worth is so much greater than my own, and I’m grateful that he shares it with me in his infinite love and mercy.
I don’t have to live in the regrets of the past, but I can make a change for the future and you can, too!
