do you ever feel worthless?

Do you ever feel worthless? Good for nothing? Without purpose? Insignificant? Unlovable? Ordinary?

Did you know that God created you in His image?

He said so in Genesis 1:27:  So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female. Genesis 1:27

It doesn’t matter if you are male or female; you were formed in the image of God. That means something. Your life is not an accident. God made you on purpose. You have worth. You have value. God formed you after Himself. He loves you and has amazing plans for your life. Every single day of your life was planned before you were even born.

The Psalmist wrote:  I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made…Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began. Psalm 139:14a, 139:16

God didn’t create the planets, earth, sun, moon, stars, rocks, rivers, canyons, mountains, trees, birds, or animals like Himself. Instead, He formed you after Himself, in His image. He made you special.

If you ever struggle with feeling worthless, pray something like this and mean it:  God, thank You for creating me in Your image. In that alone, I have great value.
