Jordan was left at a drug rehab after being kicked out of college. He felt worthless. His parents didn’t know what to do and did the best they could for him. All of our parents tried to do the best they could for us. Yet, this world is wounded and wounded people will wound their children. We’ve all been hurt by those who left when they should have lingered, who hit when they should have held, who yelled when they should have yielded, who lied when they should have led, who have cheated when they should have been committed, who have tolerated when they should have treasured…. That wounding leaves us all feeling WORTHLESS. Worthless means less than the value of being human in my heart and mind.
Here’s the thing … the glorious truth…. We are not defined by anyone or their actions. They are all feeling worthless and doing worthless actions revealing who they are. It reveals who we are when we do the same…. The voices and lies do not define us unless we let them.
The entire world may not know this word…… floccinaucinihilipilification but I knew it most of my life it was the skin I worse for close to 45 years … with unconditional love that label has changed to “accepted in the beloved” ….. Eph 1:6 …… a challenge to your thinking cap sure. Yeah I had to google right there myself when I discovered it as well.
Here’s the thing .. and I am going to skip formality of grammar and just lay it out … .. it’s a huge huge word …it is usually used just for the curiosity of knowing a very long word… but truthfully ..this word is the mountain that most can’t climb… I would look at that mountain daily and I can tell you …. … feeling worthless is one of the biggest faith wreckers in life…. We can’t do much for good and for God feeling worthless. We have no fountain to love others from…… BUT HEY….. hey! Wait…… God has said we are priceless ….. he loves us unconditionally….. even SIN doesn’t interrupt his love Romans 5:8 so… as his children …..
Feeling worthless (like nothing) causes us to do nothing….. and doing nothing will cost you everything….
Regret said this to Restoration….. “Because you don’t know the future, have faith in GOD who loves you like crazy and has already seen you in your future…….. Trust the love of GOD beyond reason even when you don’t “feel” like it. Know that you are so valuable he gave the most precious part of his glory he could give …. his life…. and became confined to a resurrected body for all eternity…. walk in that …. bathe in that …. be saturated with the power of the LOVE of GOD and let it beam from you to a world plunged in darkness that can’t find its way beyond feeling worthless even on its best day ….. Let GOD’s love flow from his amazing unending supply to and thru you to others as we all learn …. I John 4:18 truly “there is no fear in love”
If you want to know this love… contact me I’ll definitely share it with you.
