“Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth. All that matters is that you know your worth. If they don’t know your worth, realize that it’s okay because they aren’t meant for you anyway.” ~Sonya Parker
I cannot stress this enough. The most important key to understanding your worth is to know that YOU are who defines your value. Everything is based on how you think. So this means that you have to learn how to get in front of your mind. There’s an old saying – “don’t put the cart in front of the horse” which means that you should always begin each situation in the proper order. I say that here to emphasize that I am giving you tools to know your worth for yourself but if you haven’t FIRST changed the way you think about yourself then everything that I’m saying in this series will be ineffective.
If you don’t believe that you are a valuable person, then it will be very easy for your significant other (since we’re talking about relationships here) to say something that can cause you to second guess your value. Ephesians 6:12 says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” This means that our battles are spiritual battles and the enemy loves to attack us, especially in our minds. Therefore, we have to ensure that we are equipping our mind to handle anything negative that may come its way-including comments and statements that may cause you to diminish your worth. Remember, all that matters is how YOU view your worth. Not how bae views your worth.
#KnowYourWorthChallenge: Recitation is a very powerful tool in committing something to memory. That’s one way that I learned scripture was by reciting it over and over. That’s what I want you to do today. I want you to write down at least one affirmative statement about yourself and recite it over and over. Commit it to memory until you can believe it in your mind. I’d love to see what statements you come up with so be sure to share with me below!
