Some friends recently went to a conference and came back with some great insight regarding self worth. I absolutely am the worst at accepting compliments. I don't like to have pictures taken. Obviously I have very poor self esteem. There are many factors that contribute to that. Some issues have been life long issues. Other are more recently. None are worthy of lacking self confidence. My confidence should come from within. Part of my lack of confidence lies within the fact that I don't give enough time to my King. I would be much better equipped to accept compliments if I believed that I was the Princess that my Father believes I am. He knows my worth. He created me - He didn't make a mistake when He created me. He made me just the way He wanted me to be.
Recently I fought the urge to Not fully accept a compliment. It felt totally awkward to say thank you without the "but" attached to it. I still feel like I need to go back and say thank you but I am Not worthy!
Our worth is found in Christ. So when I or you say "I am not worthy" we are belittling what Christ made. Psalm 139:14 (New International Version)says "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
You are beautiful - you are lovely. You are loved! You, who are a child of God, were made in His image. He chose you before you were born. We are His Princesses.
