Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. (Psalm 100:6)Image credit: By Jeffrey Hamilton (2018), Unsplash.com, CC0/PD[/caption] I still assure my students that it's okay to make mistakes, but what I’ve learned is that knowing my worth and value is more important than trying to create a perception of perfection (or imperfection in my case). We have to be confident in ourselves and be okay with the abilities or lack of abilities God gives us. We also need to we aware that we can’t look to others to measure our success. The only one who can judge us is God. Are we measuring His success? God made us in His image, and if we have a flaw then that’s saying God makes mistakes. So the lesson is not about how perfect or imperfect you are, it's about knowing your worth and knowing God loves you. There are times I still have doubt in my own abilities, but I have recognized that I am a daughter of God and I have worth. We all have worth and God knows that. Do you know that too?
