Hello beautiful friends,
I have come to you today to touch on a topic that affects us all. Being broken and the feeling of not being worthy.
Have you ever felt broken or unworthy of love? If you answered yes, then please keep reading.
I can imagine you right now, you are sitting in class, your room, or heck maybe even on the toilet reading this and you feel like you are not enough, not loved, and not appreciated.
You wake up every day and maybe you fake a smile, maybe you’re in a relationship that you don’t want to be in, maybe you have no idea what you want to do with your life, why bad things keep happening, why you are here, why you are the way you are, or maybe you just don’t know what God’s plan is for you yet.
You feel like you keep trying and trying and see no results.
This is completely normal, my beautiful friends. It is completely normal to feel like you have no idea what is going, what you’re going to do after graduation, or what the future has.
In college especially it can be so hard to feel loved and appreciated. That’s why it’s so important to love others wholeheartedly.
Today I am here to tell you that what you’re feeling right now is OK because the Lord has a plan for YOU.
The Lord wants to see you succeed and so do I! So start praying, smiling, and believing in yourself!
LET'S DO THIS!
5 Bible verses to read and reflect on when you are feeling the way you are right now:
1. Psalm 34:18: “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit."
This verse talks about how YOU are broken and lost, but that is when the Lord is there to pick you back up. This is SO important to realize when you feel far away from God and feel alone. The Lord is near to help YOU and listen to you. He cares for you and only wants you to be happy.
2. Psalm 147:3: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."
This verse talks about how when you are broken, the Lord will bind your winds and make it better. The Lord is always there when we stray away and is always ready to take care of us. Has your heart ever been broken? As time went on did you notice it slowly going back together and feeling whole again? That was the Lord working in your heart.
3. Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make straight your paths."
This verse talks about how to trust in the Lord with your WHOLE self. Isn’t that crazy? Thinking how we can dump all of our worries and sorrows onto the Lord, and He still loves us. Heck, he still pursues us! I know it’s hard to open up and really let God into our hearts and it takes a lot to share our struggles, but He has loved you since before you born and wants you to share what is in your heart with him.
4. Isaiah 43:18: “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old."
All you homies reading this, have you ever made a mistake or done something you regret? If you said no, you are lying. We have all done things that we wish we hadn’t, whether that be not donating that extra $2 to charity, hurting people, or a multitude of reasons. The point of this verse is to emphasise the importance of forgiving yourself for the past and moving on from it. The Lord wants you to admit you have done wrong and then forgive yourself because He has already forgiven you.
5. 1 Peter 4:19: “Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good."
This verse talks about how to fully commit yourself to the Lord. We all mess up and suffer in life, but the Lord wants us to entrust our worries and sorrows to Him, because He will make us feel better. When we suffer, we are getting closer to the Lord and becoming more reliant on Him. It also is saying that when we suffer we see the Lord the most. So the next time you suffer, remember that the Lord is present and there for you.
I hope that this list has helped you see the light and see your worth! You are amazing!:)
Love Your Friend,
