This week has been hard. One of the hardest ones I have had in awhile. I feel like I’m working so hard but for what? I have moments when I do feel loved and appreciated and then… one unkind word or sarcastic speech tears me down to nothing. I know I’m feeling this way because I have not given my heart to the Lord in awhile. Selfishly I think, “they should know better. Shame on them for not loving me as they should.” I am gently reminded that my worth does not come from any woman, or man- no matter how great. I am guilty of comparing myself to every other soul that crosses my path. I really need to stop doing that.
