Worth is sticky like double-sided tape. Sometimes stuff flies through the air, insults, discontent, perceived rejection and it sticks. Meanwhile Jesus is on the inside reaching, embracing, abiding where no stickiness is needed. He is just there. There is no end and no beginning to Him, and it is hard to tell where He is and where I am. He is life, my source of breath. He has given me so much light to share with the world, so they will know Him, His power. Remove the tape, He says. Not needed. You don’t need to catch anything from the world. I gave you your worth already, you had your worth before you were born, before your grandmother was born. I planned you, I knitted you. I am guarding you and have made a place for you in my Father’s House. No more tape, absorb only the light. Pray for those who suffer and who are bound by heavy, gorilla glue type of tape. Pray hard, they need to be free.
I am trying something new! The writing above was only five minutes on the topic of the week: Worth. It is one I am dealing with on a personal level. Are you? You may email me for prayers, sweet friends: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to jump into writing, this five minutes is a great way to get started, or get connected with other writers.
