For so many years I didn’t love myself. Why, because I didn’t feel worthy of being loved.
I had made many mistakes in my past which led to low self-worth. I often felt shame, guilt, depressed and a lot of self hate.
Being an adopted child (being put up for adoption) was the root of my pain. It created pain in my heart. Growing up I was exposed to alcohol and anger. This added to the feeling of unworthiness. I always felt like something was wrong with me.
I got really good at not feeling the hurt I felt inside. So I surpressed it all. The anger manefisted and turned into self-hate. Hating and resenting my story.
In 2012 I finally realized I was worthy. I was in need of a Savior- Jesus!
I am Daughter of the King! I am a gem, brave, creative, and I have a lot to offer to this world.Reyna Morris
Living insecure with low self-worth defeats the purpose of why God created me. He created me to live an abundant life. He created me to shine and not hide. He created me on purpose for a purpose! To forgive and to receive forgiveness. He created me to love and be loved. To love myself even in my brokenness.
I know now in Him I am not missing, lacking or broken. I am complete in Him.
And today I love myself more than yesterday. It’s a daily process.
If no one has told you today. You are enough, forgiven and you are so Loved my darling! Yes we’ve made mistakes, and possibly hurt some people along the way but God has forgiven us and Nothing can separate us from the love of God. None of our sin is greater than His love.
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
