And Because

by | Jun 10, 1998 | Jesus, Self-Worth, Worthy

Lord, I feel so downcast and so unworthy,

Lord, I have been through so much in this life of mine The trials, circumstances, and the family matters, And with this life in general . . .Why do I feel so unworthy?

Lord, I think about how unworthy I am in this world, and I feel like I’m always on the outside looking in, I see others joyfully going about their lives and wonder why I see others have so much joy and wish I could feel the joy too. Is there something wrong with me, am I not doing right in you?

Lord, love so, But why is my inner most being so downcast? Why do the trials and circumstances of this life overwhelm me? Why do I feel so unworthy?

Lord, you know, I truly love you so, You know my heart. Please show me why I feel so unworthy.

The Lord replied:

My Precious Child, I have seen your trials and Circumstances. I have been there for every one. At the times you felt you could not handle anymore. I was the one who was holding your hand.

When those family matters arose in your life, I was there to soothe your heart. I am here and always will be for you, My Child. When life handed you a raw deal, I was there to calm you and walk you through. When you felt like you were on the outside looking in, You had me by your side looking in too, saying I am with you. When you felt so unworthy, it was then that I embraced you, My Child. Engulfed you with My love and with My Holy Spirit.

You Are Worthy, because I AM, And because I DID, And because I LOVED, And because I DIED, And because I ROSE, And because I LIVE, And because I SAY SO and THAT SETTLES IT!
