Why is it so hard for women to feel worthy? Why do we try to get our self worth from others instead of our Daddy?
The Virtuous Woman by Vicki Courtney: Chapter 2 "What Are You Worth?"
page 36 How about you? Is your worth based on who you are in Christ, or are you
spinning a hundred different plates of good deeds to feel like you are worth
something? A virtuous woman will get this in the right order. Ephesians 2:10
puts it into perspective: "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus
to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
So, why IS it so hard for women (or men) to see who they are in Christ? Why do so many people fill their lives with activities and try to brag about how busy they are? This seems to be a real problem where we live. So many times I've ran into someone and asked how they've been and so many times the answer comes back, "Busy!" I just want to tell them, that's NOT a badge of honor!
In this stage of my life, I am intentionally trying not to fall into this trap. (Maybe to a falt.) I don't WANT to be "busy". I want to do good works that God prepared in advance for me to do but I DON'T want to be that person who is spinning plates, or doing tons of activities, just to feel worthy.
Who I am in Christ/ What I have in Christ:
Ephesians 1:3 I've been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus
John 1:12 I've got the right to become a child of God
1 Corinthians 12:27 I am part of the body of Christ
Colossians 1:13 I've been rescued from the domain of darkness
Romans 8:1 I am free from condemnation
