Finding Your Worth in Him

All around us the world is telling us to find our worth in  the "things" that it offers, when in reality we should be finding our worth in God. In Isaiah 43 God tells us that we are precious in his sight, and that he will give people in exchange for us and nations in exchange for our life because he loves us. To him we are worth it, even when we lose sight of what he has planned for us, even when we mess up, we are still worth it because he loves us more than we can even imagine. Titus 3:5 tells us that he saved us not because of things we have done but because of his mercy. He gives us grace every single day, no matter what the cost. He  takes our brokenness and turns it into something beautiful. He makes beautiful things out of brokenness. Through the grace that he provides he lets us know that we are worth it, no matter what the world is telling us, in his eyes we are worth it all. So you see, our worth is not in the things of this world but it's in the one who created us in his perfect image, rest in that truth today and everyday.

“He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior”---Titus 3:5

"Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life”--Isaiah 43:4
