Do you ever feel unworthy? In the self-development world, there is more of that than you might think. I believe that is why many speakers get into this industry and love self-development in the first place. It has been said, “We teach what we need to learn.”
One word: Amen.
This is one of my personal struggles. I’m not sure where it came from, but many believe it comes from beliefs we create in our youth.
One part of unworthiness is a plus. It helps keep me humble. On the downside, I believe I subconsciously repel some good things that the kid in me feels are unworthy. I push things away; do you?
Here is what a friend posed to me. She reminded me that I am a child of God.
1 Timothy 5:18
“The laborer deserves his wages.”
My friend said something like this: “It does not say that the laborer deserves his wages except Darren.” LOL. That is funny. Ouch!
If you are a believer, consider that maybe you are worthy and deserving because you are a child of God.
Does that make sense? I’m still working on internalizing this idea.
Thank you, God, for Truth, Love, and Laughter,

P.S. Thank you, especially, for grace.

I think the devil is a big, fat liar (the Bible calls him the Father of Lies) and we believe the lies. Maybe we do something stupid and someone says something mean to us. Maybe we look around and compare our area of weakness to someone else’s area of strength. Whatever the situation, the devil takes advantage of it–whispers in our ear, “You’re inadequate. You’re less than,” and we believe it. I think the solution is praying and asking God what’s true of us. Reading His Word is very effective in pinpointing the truth. One of my favorite truths: “You are fearfully and wonderfully made.” For me that goes a long way in combating a number of lies.
