Sometimes when we make mistakes or poor choices we can lose sight of our self worth. We can also let the opinions of others cause us to look down on our own selves and we forget that we too are still somebody. No matter where you are in life right now, please remember that you still have SELF WORTH! Things may seem a little blurry right now and you may feel down but you still have SELF WORTH!
Don’t allow people to put you down just because you are a teen mom. The statics are not who you are. You can rise above it and prove just how much worth you still have. Our decisions are a part of us but they do not define the very essence of who we are. You are going to have to be very selective of the type people that you choose to hang around. Their influence in your life and that of your child will be crucial. They will either encourage you to achieve greater or they will continue to tell you what you can’t do. Be careful who you allow in your inner circle. It’s no longer just you but you have another human being depending on you as well. The choices you make will also lead them. Our children often imitate us on various levels if we play close attention to them.
You must believe in yourself even if no one else will do it. You must encourage yourself even if no one else knows the importance of it. You cannot depend on people to validate your self worth. You must know that on your own first and then others will notice it. How you treat yourself is the standard for everyone else including your child. You are still a jewel in God’s eye sight! You still matter! You are still worth it!
Jeremiah 32:39 (NLT)
And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants.
In a world where self-gratification is sought out more than anything. In a world where riches are desired more than anything. In a world where we have left our first love. In a world of busyness and everything fast paced and instant. We have forgotten to teach our girls how to worship God. Instead they worship music artists and fashion designers and those who they deem great in their little eyes. We take them to church but that is about all that we do. We have forgotten to instruct them on finding their purpose.
We have to refocus our girls back to the true and living God. In their worshiping God they will know their purpose. In their worshiping God they will know their importance. In their worshiping God they will get that feeling of fulfillment that can come from no other place. In their worshiping God they will get clarity on the issues of life. In their worshiping God it will bring great delight to Him. It’s not too late for them to turn around. All hope is not gone. We must not give up on them. They are the ones that will lead the generation of girls behind them. They must know the truth so that they can pass it on. They shall know their purpose!
Father, we declare that every girl shall know their God given purpose. They shall understand the importance of carrying out their purpose. They shall find delight in completing their purpose for you. Father, give them clarity on what you have created them to do. Help us to lead and guide them in the right way. Help us to be godly examples for them. Help us to teach them how to worship in spirit and in truth. Forgive us where we have fallen in this area and help us to make a turn around for the benefit of our girls. We believe and know that there is still time to make a change. All hope is not lost as long as they still have breath in their bodies. Show us all the way Lord. We need your Holy Spirit to help us in all that we do. It is our hearts desire to get back on track for your glory. They shall have one heart and one purpose: to worship you forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants. In Jesus name, amen!

I shall not waste my resources (Colossians 3:23)
I am destined for success (John 14:12, Philippians 1:6)
