Where does your worth come from?

You can’t make people love you; you just can’t. Trust me, I’ve tried. I’m one of those people who wears their heart on their sleeve, and have expected people to give back the same love I give. But when it doesn’t happen (that same expression of love), I’ve been hurt and question my worth. I know I’m not alone in thinking this way.

Here’s the thing though, if we continue to think this way, and try to find our worth in other people, we will always be let down. You can’t find your worth in people, things, or accomplishments. You’ll be let down every single time.

You’re worth needs to come from Jesus, the one who thinks you’re to die for, literally. As I sit here reflecting on this Holy Week, I’m reminded of the reckless love of Jesus. He made me in His image (Genesis 1:27), and says I’m fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139). He knew I’d turn away from Him, but He made a way for me to be with Him because He knows I’m worth it.

On this week two thousand plus years ago, Jesus went through incredible pain, humiliation, and even death on a cross. Three days later, just as He promised, He rose from the grave, defeating death and sin. He did this because He is so crazy in love with us and desires a relationship with us.

Next time (because I’m not perfect) I question my worth, I’ll be looking directly at the cross where Jesus said it all. I hope you will too.

Having a disability is exhausting

This is something that I have been thinking about for a while, and have only discussed with my two closest friends. Today I read an article posted by The Mighty (see below) that justified my thoughts.
