Day #29 Priceless
Feeling valuable and precious is so tough for some of us.
In the past, I tried to give the impression of being a valuable person, by spending a great deal of time and money getting my hair styled and keeping it that way, working out at a trendy fitness center and choosing the oh-so-right clothes.
I couldn’t afford to drive the hottest car or live in a status symbol home; however they were always a part of my goals to achieving a major sense of worth.
Alas, no matter what I purchased or how many goals were set and affirmations said, deep down inside, I still didn’t feel satisfied or valuable enough.
And that, my friend, is the heart of the matter. I equated my worth and “feeling good enough” with symbols of money and power.
For too many years I thought the path to feeling good enough and being really worth something was earning a million dollars or writing a couple of bestselling books.
During my transformation journey I discovered that the most powerful being in existence, the CEO of the Universe, didn’t equate my value with material things.
1 Samuel 16:7 KJV says, “But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as a man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”
If the King of Kings doesn’t look at outward appearances or material things, then why should I?
Isn’t the heart far more precious than jewels?
How I treat myself and in turn treat other people is far more precious than having expensive things and living a luxurious life. Of course those things would be nice; however, I no longer equate my value with what I have.
When I decided to work every day for the CEO of the Universe and learn more about how He operates, I finally found my worth.
And it is priceless.
Today’s affirmation is, “I am priceless and precious. I release the need or desire to believe my value is tied to material things.”
Transformation, one word, one day at a time.
Change your outlook.
Change your behavior.
When asked, “How are you?” answer with today’s word.
