I Am Worthy

“We seek significance,” Leslie and Les Parrott. We all try to establish our value in life. We might find it temporarily when we receive praise from a parent or on social media. We get that feeling of inner well-being. This is real. We get these feelings when endorphins are being released into our blood. But endorphins come and go, leading us back to that endless quest to establish our value, our worth, through a never-ending cycle of “doing.” If I please the boss, I will be worthy. If I win the prize, I will be valuable. We trick ourselves into believing only if I am “doing” am I worthy. But God says I am worthy for one reason. Why? Because He CHOSE me. He MADE me, and He has a purpose for me! (Paraphrased from Healthy Me Healthy Us, new book by the Parrotts.)

“Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.” Psalm 139:13-16 MSG
