How Much Are You Worth?

le store

If you’re not being treated with the love & respect you deserve, check Your “Price Tag”. Perhaps you have marked YOURSELF down. It is YOU who tells people YOUR worth by what you ACCEPT. Get off the “Clearance Rack” and get behind the glass case where they keep the Valuables. Bottom line – VALUE YOURSELF MORE.

  1. Ok, this is one area where I need a lot of work. My friends have been telling me lately I don’t value myself very much since I tend to put other people’s priorities before my own—constantly. It’s one of the reasons I can’t finish an album—or even a song. At least that’s what I’ve been told.

    It really isn’t that I don’t value me at all, it’s that in comparison I don’t think others will. So I live out my value through their eyes instead of the Boss’. This is one area, Susan, I could use a lot of prayer. I hate conceit, arrogance and any hint of “better-than-you” syndrome, so I guess I over compensate by sacrificing my own value to avoid those things. I am working towards an equilibrium on the subject, but a lifetime of being told I’m not worth that much is hard to buck.

    But I’m working on convincing myself of this… 🙂

  2. Do I sound like a spiritual wuss?

    • Nope. I’ve been prayerfully weighing what I have to say about this. I’m on my way to work but I will post today!

  3. So, what you are telling me is that you are talented, smart, a visionary BUT that to say that out loud is conceited or arrogant? I’m saying it’s the truth and until you believe it and walk in it, then no one believes it and walks in it.

    All that to say that I struggle with the same thing. I have 1/2 of a book written. It’s raw and needs work but it’s good AND that’s the first time I’ve uttered it out loud AND notice it’s not really out loud per se, it’s spoken in the medium I work best in, words on paper. Only everyone and everything comes before it’s completion. It’s all in my head, including the ending and yet to finish and submit seems.. I don’t know.. over-the-top.

    So I write this to you and myself and to all the others who may come across this and read this. We need to value ourselves, know that if we don’t move on our dreams they die as buried talent. I don’t want to be a wicked servant and yet whatever it is, that recording in my head says, “Plueessse, you are not all that, and there are things much more important on your plate.”

    So until we believe in ourselves ENOUGH it stays undercover.

  4. I believe that God makes us “all that and a bag of chips” but doesn’t want us to worry about it. The only thing I’m failing at is being confident in how He sees me. There’s a famous quote that goes, “We should value ourselves by the price Christ paid for us.” No conceit or arrogance just fact.

    I know what you’re saying, Susan, it’s hard when those who hate risk because they live in constant fear of the unknown and unknowable tell us we can’t just because it’s not been tried before.

    I believe in my weakness (I’m 51 this year and out dated by some standards) His strength will be made perfect and I’m standing for the mission God gave me me years ago.

    Thanks for your encouragement.

  5. Good Morning Ps Young, I’m glad I ended on this webpage after a google search.
    I’m happy to read the words of wisdom of a woman pastor.
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas from Milan 🙂
