It’s a phrase that makes my heart grow. The people who have spoken that phrase into my life have taught me so much about value, and about God.
Self-worth is something that I’ve always struggled with.
I’ve believed lies about myself instead of believing truth.
The people who have spoken truth into my life have been invaluable to me in trying to relearn how to view myself and how to view my Heavenly Father.
Several weeks ago, the day before my grandmother’s funeral, a friend brought a basket of fruit over. I didn’t notice for a fewdays, but tucked in with the fruit was a small piece of paper with the simple words “You Are Special” written on it.
I dont feel special. But those words made me feel loved.
It can often be hard to remember the truth when we are struggling. To see ourselves the way Jesus sees us.
I love to hold my friends words close when those times of doubt come.
To pin those words up on your walls, or post them on your phone screen… really, anywhere where your eyes can be drawn to those words when you need them most.
There are three quotes that have been burned into my heart.
Three special messages that I have held close as I try to instil truth to combat the lies in my soul.
"You're not dumb." -Trina "You're not a failure." -Cor "You are Mine." -God
These words of truth remind me of so much more then what they say.
They remind me of my value in the eyes of God.
They remind me that I am loved.
They remind me of the truth that friends have spoken into my life.
And they remind me, that I am special.
Friend, YOU are special.
Never doubt that.
You are special to God, and you are special to God’s people.
You are special to me.
