Count to ten before posting...

It started with one sentence. One sentence that I carelessly threw into the air, sending my life into a tailspin. One sentence that drove me to declare, "I must quit blogging forever." Or at least limit my posts to cute stories of the puppies, kittens and small children with dirty faces variety.


One sentence, undetectable to any one else, that made me learn the strength of words and doubt the strength of me.

One sentence that made me cry unto the Lord, "I don't like myself right now. Please show unto me my worth. For without self worth I am USELESS. I can't accomplish anything of value in this life if I don't love me first. Please show me how to love ME."

It was several sentences found in the Old Testament that beckoned me. Sentences that I nearly passed over before being told, "No go back and read the verses underlined in red." The prompting was strong so I obeyed. It was several sentences, His sentences, that stilled my breath and made me weep.

I am His. I have worth.
And I will try to never be careless again.

Be care-free then, cuz your Heavenly Father did it all.
It's finished.

Ugh-I have been there. Thank goodness for the tender mercies that allow you to regain what you have lost.

Isn't nice to be reminded, in whatever way, that we are of worth to our Father in Heaven.
