You Are Loved

"What you do is not who you are. What you experience is not what gives life value. What others think of you does not determine what you're worth or not worth. And who you think you could become will never be what makes you happy.

God created you. And much like an artist who stands back to admire his painting, his artwork has value because he created it, and it comes from him. Others can offer up their opinion, they can dislike the painting or think it doesn’t compare to other artwork. But that doesn’t matter, the artist sees the worth in his work, and loves it because it belongs to him.

It’s for this very same reason you have value in God’s eyes. You matter because you belong to Him. If it doesn't seem fair, that's because it isn't. But trying to be fair and earn your value will leave you emptier than before.

Despite all your failures and successes in life, your value stays the same as it’s always been. God says that you are His, and that you are loved."
