Inspirational Thoughts

By Joyce Meyer

Believe in Your Value

Take a minute and look into your heart. How do you feel about yourself? If your answer does not agree with God’s Word, I encourage you to begin today renewing your mind about yourself.

See yourself as God sees you. Study God’s Word and you will find out that you are precious, created in your mother’s womb by God’s own hand. You are not an accident. Even if your parents told you they never really wanted you, I can assure you that God wanted you. You are valuable, you have worth, you are gifted, you are talented, and you have a purpose on this earth.

Not only must we ask God for things He has promised us but we must receive them (see John 16:24). If you feel unworthy, you probably won’t ask, and even if you do, you won’t receive by faith. Don’t let feelings rule you anymore. Take a step of faith and start improving your quality of life today. Believe that you make good decisions, that you are a valuable person with a great future, and something good is going to happen to you today!

Pray: Lord, I ask You to imprint Your love into the depths of my heart. I believe You have a great future for me and that I can walk in Your purpose for my life. Amen.

Selfishness

Selfishness…what an awful thing it is. I continuously see selfishness rear its ugly head, all around me, all of the time. God made this perfect world for us and we, the humans he made, in his own image, have ruined it with selfishness and greed. We have no positive regard for others. It is all about “SELF”. All of us have some selfish traits at one time or another. Yet all of us are not always selfish! There are times when we crave certain things, even if it is just contentment or something we really want. Yet those things don’t make us greedy or selfish, unless taken to the max!

SELFISHNESS IS:

–never lending a hand

–always wanting something from SOMEONE

–being ungrateful for what YOU HAVE

–NOT thanking GOD for what you have, because of HIM!

–asking a person to do something, and wanting them to stop and do it on your terms, with no regard for what the other person is doing or has to do

–“just because” phone calls, text messages, visits. YET, when something is WANTED or needed OR they realize they have been a complete idiot, here they come, blowing ya up…Shaking my head!

–giving you something, yet, the “gift” has a hidden meaning. (A person gives you something because they want you to do something for them or need to bug you about something for the next month)

What happened to caring & empathy? What happened to being nice to someone just because? Selfishness & greed has taken a toll on society as a whole and in relationships of all kind. What happened to giving without always having a trick up your sleeve?

I always try to let the ones I love know I love them through kind deeds and actions. Showing love and appreciation is not always shown through giving material things. Sometimes others just need you to GIVE or LEND them a shoulder to cry on. Some just need someone to listen to them and offer encouragement. Some just need, at some times, someone to simply “be there”. The power of knowing someone is there with you, whether they say a word or not is simply priceless.

If only people could get over themselves and realize the world is bigger than THEIR WORLD and just be there sometimes for someone else, the world would be a much better place!

I Remember, Part II.

I remember when I realized exactly how much time had passed me by.

So much time & energy had been wasted on the wrong things.

Things & people, undeserving of “a place”, were once a priority. So much time I wasted you see.

It seems I was on a quest, trying to find, all of the things I’d lost, things that were mine.

I forgot the most important of all. I forgot myself, it was my ultimate downfall.

I remember grasping a strong hold on myself. It was about loving life & nurturing self.

I remember when things I once thought were serious became so small. I let it go. I lost the desire for it all.

Those things I did not need, goodbye to them, hello to ME!

Along the way I rediscovered, so much about life, It was as if I’d first uncovered…a priceless treasure, a once in a lifetime find. It all came clear when I realized it was all here in my mind.

Everything I needed already existed inside. No longer did I think I’d lost my mind.

I remember choices.

I remember peace.

I remember walking away, from bits & pieces of me.

I remember finding tranquility in things others thought of as me being silly.

I remember being able to make choices without being guilty, doing things for myself, just to be a little frilly.

I remember when going back on my word hurt. It was obvious that dedication was part of my work.

I remember when I had no conscience. I did not care. I was taken for granted so; I may as well have not been there.

I remember when I started seeking more of His word. I was tired of doing me. It was so absurd.

I had to be still, to listen within. I had to chill out and realize who was and was not a true friend.

I remember hate. I remember a hate so strong it was within me, in my bones.

I remember when I was restored, the tears of joy, oh how they poured.

I remember vowing I would never forget who I am.

Never again would I not be my own priority.

I remember feeling His presence around, such a breath of fresh air, gratefulness, deep down.

I remember…

Everything…

I thank Him for the tears, even as they ruin my make-up, my eye liner smears.

I thank Him for the ability to “feel”. Even in sadness or frustration, I realize I am human. My feelings are real.

I thank Him for the highlights of my life…the things that make pushing on worth the strife.

I thank Him for peace while in the midst of trials, fears, & disappointments. Each setback is a reminder of His wisdom, favor, those precious moments.

I thank Him for clarity. His insight is part of me. So grateful, I am. So thankful for everything I shall always be!
