FIGHTING TO KNOW JESUS IS RIDDLED WITH JOY AND DIFFICULTY, AS IS MOTHERHOOD. IF WE EMBRACE THIS, IT WILL BRING US TO A PLACE THAT ONLY GOD CAN BRING REST TO AND SUSTAIN US IN. THIS IS WHERE DEEP JOY IS FOUND.

You. Are. WORTHY.

You. Are. WORTHY.

What gives you worth?

Is it the amount of money you make or the clothes you wear? The car you drive or the status you have in the community? Maybe it's the number on a scale or attractiveness as culture demands? Is it your perfect performance that solidifies your worth?

What happens when you don't perform...

We have this underlying desire for perfection that shapes us. It plagues us with our post baby body image. It ruins us in our failed attempts to be the perfect parent. It bogs us down in guilt when we indulge in that delicious desert. It crushes us when we are denied the sought after position. It reminds us over and over that we cannot achieve what we so long for.

Oftentimes our imperfection and failures suffocate our worth....

Leaving us striving to perform better.... To be ENOUGH.

You are imperfect and wired for struggle, BUT YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE AND BELONGING.

You can crawl out from the rubble of your failed attempts and stand secure on the grounds that Jesus Himself laid. You do not need to perform to be worthy of love and acceptance. Instead, your actions now flow out of the complete approval you already have from Him!

Jesus already declared that you belong to Him and are now worthy of His love as His child!

Now you don't have to hide under the mask of perfection. You can dive into deep, Godly community without the pressure to have it all together. 

Imperfection with your...

Job...

Parenting...

Marriage...

Weight...

Friendships...

Performance... 

Does not have to name you!

Jesus Himself names you Worthy.

I know you're saying I just don't FEEL worthy... 

I know the struggle here all too well. And the goal of the enemy is to hold you captive here.

Captive to your feelings of worthlessness...

Oh how the enemy wins if you allow him to keep you here!

Let us choose today and everyday to involve ourselves in Godly community. Then to invite them to remind us of where our value comes from. To allow our life to be shaped by His Word and not our feelings!

Worth is not something we can earn. 

Nor something we can loose.

It is defined by God alone and He is inviting you to believe Him.

Your struggles are your catapult.

Your struggles are your catapult.
