Summary: Calling all singles and divorced women! Do you agree that your self-worth impacts your life and outlook on who you are? If you're like me, you need to know that who you are! Whose you are and where you are going? As a newly single and divorced woman, it is vital to know your self-worth in this life. I can relate to you by being a single and divorced woman myself; it is imperative to have a solid self-portrait of who you are in God. Therefore, self-worth is defined as the sense of one's value or worth as a person; self-esteem; self-respect. There is a clear vision to know that who you are in Jesus Christ! God says undoubtedly in his word that you are a unique creation. According to the Bible in King James Bible Psalm 139:14, I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Here are three things to increase self-worth and who you are in Jesus Christ.
Reflection: You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You can find who you are in Christ Jesus thru Prayer, The Bible Scriptures, and Spending Quality Time with God. Ask yourself a question Who am I in Christ, and what does the bible say about my self-worth. Self- Worth is discovered through various ways; however, Prayer is one way to find out who you are in Jesus Christ. Prayer is a separate time to spend time alone with God in Prayer where he reassurance your self-worth.
Image: You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Your physical appearance, your skin, your hair, your personality, and your beauty all came from God. my friend, you are made in the image and likeness of God. According to the bible, Genesis 1:27 So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female. You are the crown of glory in God's eyes. 1 Corinthians 11:15 But doesn't nature also teach that when a woman has long hair, it is her glory? It radiates her beauty and acts as a natural veil. Your entire being matters to God. You are beautiful to God just the way you are!
Who I am: You will discover who you are in Jesus Christ thru spending time in the Word of God and Prayer. The word of God and Prayer assists you in your discovery of who you are. Prayers are where you ask the question of who I am, and the word of God gives answers in due time. Here are a few bible scriptures to help you discover who you are in Jesus Christ.
1.Jeremiah 29:11 -Jeremiah 29:11 ESV -For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
2.I am born again—spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart for God's purpose—through the living and everlasting word of God (1 Peter 1:23).
3.I am God's workmanship, created in Christ to do good works that He has prepared for me to do (Ephesians 2:10).
4. I am a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).
