I’ve always been a very insecure person. I grew up poor and kids aren’t very tolerant of that. I was worthless because of my dollar store shoes, and I had no one to tell me any different. These things went on through childhood, and then into early adulthood as I was involved in a 2-year long abusive relationship.
Now, my depression is worse than it’s ever been and I’m overweight to boot. I have a lot of reasons to be insecure. To feel worthless
Maybe you’re like me. Maybe you are overweight. Maybe you’ve had one too many failures in your life. Maybe you lose your top at your kids or your husband. Maybe you feel unloved and unlovable sometimes.
When I was a kid, I always wondered, Why is it called “good” Friday?
A day that represents immense suffering, humiliation, and death of our Savior. Why is it called good?
But now I know. It’s about me. It’s about you. It’s good because Jesus died for us, so that we might live. No matter how unworthy we might be.
When you get down on yourself, if you get insecure and start to think that you’re not really worth it to anyone, remember that to Jesus Christ, you are worth suffering and dying for.
There are no words to express the gratitude, the overwhelming feeling of His sacrifice. Let it wash over you today.
