"Loved Beyond Measure"

Sometimes I fall in the trap of the "comparison game". I find my focus on all the negative things about myself- my appearance, how do I measure up , how do "they" see me, etc.
The problem is that my focus is all wrong! This message from Holley spoke to me this morning.

"We step on the scales.
Compare ourselves to others.
Try to measure up.We all just want to know,
"What am I worth?"
The Heart of Heaven declares
that the answer is infinite,
beyond our ways,
more than we can know.
Because our worth
doesn't come from what we do,
but Whom we belong to.
And you're His treasure...
loved beyond measure."

Holley Gerth

Our focus needs to be on Him. He made us. We belong to Him. We are here for His good pleasure, for His glory...and not for ours. This makes all the difference.

Thank you! This is so true!! A friend posted on facebook a while back: "What someone else thinks of you is none of your business." We're here for HIS glory & purpose. Awesome!!!
