He changed me! He's still working on me but He's allowing me to look at myself, not as a product of my surroundings or circumstances, but as His precious creation. Like a piece of clay in the Potter's hands, I'm being molded into a masterpiece. I am so thankful that He didn't give up on me and throw this ole lump of clay in the fire so many years ago when I was being difficult and resistant to His patient shaping!
I have recently chosen to turn away from my habits of laziness and bad food choices and have adopted a healthy lifestyle for myself because I AM WORTH IT! I deserve good health and I need to be healthy in order to be able to pursue the opportunities that God has for me to serve Him.
I have also recently decided to pursue my first degree, a Bachelor's in Psychology because I AM WORTH IT! I deserve to have a good education and a good career and I need this education in order to be better able to help others.
I have known for quite some time that God wanted to use my life to help people but I wasn't ready. Not feeling worthy to be used by Him, I couldn't see how I could make a difference. I am ready now and I AM WORTH IT! I am ready to see others blessed by what God has done and continues to do through me. I truly don't deserve His mercy but He has made me WORTH IT!
