Happy Valentines Day – Love Yourself

February 14, 2008

I try to start each day by spending some time with God.  One of my favorite ways to do that is to read the daily devotional from In Touch Ministries.  I found it interesting that today’s devotional, on Valentines Day, talks about loving yourself, having self-worth, and learning to love the person that God created you to be.  I encourage you all to check out the devotion for yourself, but I will share the bulk of it with you below.  Be encouraged!

“All people are valuable to the Lord. But the believer’s self-worth is rooted in the fact that we have a relationship with God. We are to care for ourselves, based upon the fact that He has provided for our salvation, given us the Holy Spirit, and developed a unique plan for our life.

Love of self is essential to God’s plan for every believer. He desires that we exercise care for our own person, which helps us relate to Him. If we dislike ourselves, we may feel unworthy of God’s love and refuse to approach Him as Father. But love teaches us to see ourselves the way the Lord does—as available vessels, each with unique gifts and talents. Then we can offer greater usefulness to the kingdom. Using us to the fullest extent of our God-given abilities is the Father’s goal, and if we have a righteous love for self, that will be our goal too.

Whoever you are and whatever your circumstances may be, I can tell you something about yourself. God has a special plan for you. But He cannot set you on the path to achieving His goals for your life until you recognize your worth and learn to love the person He created you to be.”
