Jeremiah 29:11-13 - “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you, And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”
Nothing you do ever seems to be good enough for others. They pick apart your life ready to let you know just how badly you do things. You slump your shoulders as you try to lift yourself out of the muck and the mire. And just as you start to get out of the deepening muck someone steps on you. You wonder, “Do I deserve to be treated this way? Am I really so low on the totem pole?” But life doesn’t have to be that way. Regardless what other people think of you, remember the most important voice in your head. God says, “I love you. You are perfect and have everything you need today. Close up those ears that hear you’re worthless and believe in my love and that you do have a purpose each day.”
