Self Worth

“Isaiah 61:10, “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.”
 
One’s self-worth is the combination of perceptions of self, others, and God. The desire to feel a true sense of value, acceptance, and love is given by God and is to be satisfied by him. Struggles with self-worth can occur when too much emphasis is placed on performance and other’s opinions. It is also further complicated by a history of trauma, abuse, family experiences or situation, excessive comparison to others, and emotional struggles. Our self-worth should be based on two sources: 1) being created in God’s image and 2) our position in Christ.
