Perhaps at times you may feel that God is not aware of you or that you haven’t felt His love. I believe that if you will reflect for just a moment on the loving service you receive from others, you will see the workings of the Lord moving in the background.
A strong, healthy self-esteem is part of being truly humble. Seek the assured confidence that comes from loving God, others, and yourself.
Our eternal worth is given to us by God. We do not have to let it be determined by others—only by God and ourselves. We can lose sight of our self-worth if we do not keep the commandments and consequently disregard the divinity within us.
The Lord knows us individually and does not grade on a competitive "curve." We should not measure our worth by comparing ourselves to others.
Instead of basing our image on our failures, we ought to see ourselves for the light of Christ we carry, which can bless so many others.
So many issues that revolve around the subject of self fade like the dew in the sun as one cultivates faith in the Savior.
There is an aid, there is a strength, there is a power when we count our blessings as we labor under crosses that sometimes seem unreasonable and unfair but that can be for our good and for our strength. Carry your crosses with strength, with purpose, and while you do, count the blessings of God’s strength.
Greater confidence and self-image comes not through the praise of others, but as we glorify God. With an eye focused on Him, we learn our true purpose.
Learn to love yourself as God loves you, for you have infinite value and potential. May I suggest six essentials to keep a healthy self-esteem.
Paul H. Dunn explains that "no one can make you feel inferior without your consent." If you know your worth, you can succeed.
