  1. Well written. I, too, battle these things. I have infinite worth in Jesus Christ, and yet I still look at myself as a worthless vessel. It’s just another tool of satan to hold us back. With Jesus’ help, I want to plug my ears to the lies and believe the truth I find in Jesus Christ.

  2. You’ve spoken words today my friend that have truly blessed my soul. Thank you for sharing your heart so freely, thank you for being so transparent, and thank you for following the prompting to write those words!
    xoxo, Mel

  3. It’s so hard sometimes to remember to look at ourselves how God sees us with all the ‘noise’ the world throws at us. Thank you for sharing these thoughts. Such a needed reminder for my spirit today.

  4. I am constantly amazed how God uses the internet to reach me right where I am. I am so thankful that I have been led here and to Andrea’s blog! I have been going through the same sort of thing. I have also had some major epiphanies myself.
    I hope that my journey can help someone as you all are helping me!!!

  5. This has been a tremendously huge shift in my own life. For far too long, I let others define me. I let what other people said I was good for (or not) determine who I was. That was also, though, accompanied by a view of God that was wrong. (Along with a complete inability to grasp the concept of grace.)
    And while I’m far from where I used to be, there are still times…..still certain areas…..where it hasn’t seemed to ‘take’ yet. 😉
    This is an awesome reminder. Thanks for the great post!
    Love!

  6. Andrea, thank you for your words. They so greatly touched my heart! What a wonderful reminder…that we are accepted, loved, forgiven, and holy daughters of the King. Hallulujah!

  7. This is so beautiful my friend. And my heart needed to hear it so much.
    We are vessels some are cracked and ordinary…some are unique but all serve a purpose. To be filled….loved. accepted. forgiven. holy.

  8. The Daniel study truly changed my life. Perhaps the most profound lesson that He taught me during that time was how I use things of this world to fill voids in my heart that only He can fill.
    I loved what He taught you through His word. You are precious!

  9. Thank you so much for opening your heart and sharing the revelations that the Lord ministered to you during this study. It is sometimes hard to fully embrace the truth of those words – We are holy because He is holy. It is unfathomable to the human mind and yet it is exactly that which humbles and causes me to daily give thanks for His holiness and His love.

  10. I could have written the first paragraph myself! I don’t regularly read (in)courage, but divine intervention must have inspired me to read this today. Thank you.

  11. I started that study a few years ago, did half, and put it down for some reason. Hearing what a few of you shared here has made me get it out and dust it off again. Looking forward to digging in! I’ll let you know how it goes!

  12. I can so relate with that sense of feeling ordinary, not-special, unwanted, and not-valued. I have looked to others, for so long, to define and validate me. Just very recently have I allowed myself to let the truth that God sees me as precious and worthy sink in. It`s such a simple fact that is so difficult to surrender too. Today, I choose to let it be true for me that I am the daughter of the King of Kings.I commit to shedding the things of this world that so easily entangle and to turn my heart to my Father; trusting that he will anoint, consecrate, set me apart as holy. Like Him.

  13. I am just grinning from ear to ear over all of you ladies!! That we can begin to grasp our true worth in our Father’s eyes is an answer to prayer. Thank you so much for sharing where you are all at in your own journeys – I am praying for you!

  14. THANK YOU, ITS JUST WHAT I NEEDED TO READ AND TO HEAR.MY DAUGHTER ALWAYS SENDS ME THESE JUST WHEN IT IS VERY MUCH NEEDED.I ALSO DUSTED OFF MY BIBLE ONCE AGAIN AND AM TRYING TO NOT LISTEN TO LIES FROM SATAN.
    GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU AGAIN,FOR LIFTING MY HEART AND SPIRIT.
