There is a negative connotation to the term being ‘full of one’s self’. Like a balloon of arrogance exploded inside of your head.
I’m not talking about that sort of ‘self fullness’
There is also such negative chit -chat that follows the word ‘self’. What I mean by self worth is to believe in the abilities, wisdom and discernment sewn in to your being. To trust in the ability of your maker. He designed the Milk Way amazingly, didn’t He?! So why would He make an OOPSY whilst designing you?!
I’m talking about walking in the knowledge today that you are LOVELY. You are just who you are meant to be and you are where you are meant to be.
There is NOTHING wrong in believing in your God given talents and abilities. You dulling your sparkle or shine is not going to help anyone.
Walk in the knowledge today that you are worthy of giving and getting respect.
We don’t wear price tags fastened to our flesh indicating our worth or value. So do not place an assumed value upon yourself. Who are you to determine the worth of people? Isn’t it you that bought a pair of shoes because they were on sale? Shoes that were still not a good deal, but you deemed it a good price only because it was half price. Half of very expensive is still expensive. Your view on worth can be warped. Do not even try to determine your worth according to what people say, what you have been through or done.
You are worth more than you could ever realize! You were bought at a high price! Redeemed, saved and made pure!
Hold that head high!
Be full of worth.
Be full of the knowledge that you were designed and fashioned with a purpose in mind.
You might not have the blue print in front of you right now- but that does not mean it isn’t going to happen.
You might not have reached your destination yet… But you will get there.
You are worthy and FULL of possibility and purpose!
In this poem, Out Deepest Fear, Marianne Williamson sums it up beautifully.
Our Deepest Fear
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
