What is My Worth?

Posted by | June 23, 2014 | Identity, Loneliness | No Comments

Do you ever feel “unworthy?” Many times in ministry we get so beat up that we don’t feel worthy of our calling and feel all alone. I want to encourage you today that no matter what others have said to you or about you, you are worthy.

I read a quote from Rev. Run that I absolutely loved: “$100 is worth $100 no matter how dirty and crumbled it may be. Similarly, you don’t lose your worth because you’ve been through something!”

Let’s stop believing the enemy’s lies and believe God’s truth. “You are fearfully and wonderfully made.”

Remember Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Of course you are not alone because God has promised He would never leave you. But sometimes we need a person to confide in or to walk with us through a trial.

We are here for you so please don’t hesitate to call or email. We don’t have all the answers, but we certainly understand the struggles of ministry after 36 years of serving full-time in ministry. We have experienced a lot of stuff that made us feel unworthy and all alone but God brought us through those circumstances stronger and we grew through them, we didn’t just go through them.
