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.

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." If you know your true worth, nothing can stop you from succeeding.
