What Am I Worth?

In our society we often measure our worth by what we earn or own, by what we've accomplished, or by what others think of us. Recently as I've struggled with the task of examining my thoughts and emotions for truth a greater truth has slowly dawned on me. Instead of measuring my worth by what I see in the mirror or how I feel about myself or even how others perceive me, I've come to realise that there's another way of calculating worth.

I've discovered that in front of my name there's a great big zero. So great that there's no getting away from it.

But in front of that zero is not a dollar sign but a cross. Because of what Christ did for me on the cross, my sins have been taken away and are remembered no more. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed my sins.

When He looks at me He doesn't see what I see - or even what you see. Instead He sees someone that has been redeemed. His outstretched hands proclaim, "This is how much I love you. This is how much you're worth. I did it for you."

Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting on my hair post :O)

You can ask my friends and family...I am never 100% on what I'm going to do with my hair. But the older I get the shorter it goes. Though I think this is short enough. I would love to see a picture of the new layers your stylist put in your hair to frame your face! I'll bet it is lovely. But I know what you are talking about when you are done at the salon and you are looking in the mirror thinking....I did ask for this...gulp...

Have a very blessed and wonderful Spring DAY!!!
