Why God?

Why God? It is probably something God hears from me often. As someone who has struggled with significant control in the past, “why God?” is crucial. Some stages of my life in my walk with God have not been ideal or comfortable, so I will ask why to give me some peace in my situation. I don’t always get God to answer the question, actually I probably never do until much later, and most of it still has to do with God growing me in my character.

It seems that my why God has been shifting to God help me understand and give me strength. He sees the bigger picture, and each situation seems to be a puzzle for that picture. My heart tends to be more at peace when I focus on the fact that God truly is good and knows what He is doing. I like focusing on Jeremiah 29:11 as a reminder that the plans He has for me are good and not harm to give me hope and a future. In situations where things don’t seem significant in my life, I will recite Jeremiah 29:11. It’s a reminder that God is bigger than whatever I am going through, even in the not so good moments.


You are not alone because he is always with you. Seek him with your whole being and ask him to show you how to pray for the situation you are currently going through.

Jesus loves you!

Success! You're on the list.

Knowing your value in the midst of your circumstances

It can be hard to feel valuable when you are constantly messing up. When you fail, you feel as if something is wrong with you. You beat yourself up, and begin to live in a place of defeat.

When people do not know their value, they begin to settle for less. 

Settling in places such as a job, romance, friendships, beliefs, and so on.

Growing up, I had social anxiety. The only people I was comfortable talking to were the really nice people, that would go out of their way to talk to me. I didn’t feel worthy, I felt as if I had nothing to say or to bring to the table. 

Things began to change for me when I wanted more out of life. I wanted to make a difference, and my heart was to encourage people, in order to do that I would need to be okay with getting over what others thought about me. I started ministry school when I was about 23, and in ministry school they would encourage us to pray for strangers. At first it was so hard for me to have to go up to a stranger and ask them how I could pray for them but then, over time, it got easier.

Whatever you are going through, whether its at work or a relationship and you just don’t feel worthy, I encourage you to go deep into your heart and ask yourself these questions…

Who told me that I am not worthy?

Why am I choosing to believe this?

Do I believe I am here on earth for a purpose?

I want you to know that you are valuable, and that as long as you are alive, God has a great purpose for your life. You weren’t created just to be here, every part of you was carefully created by an amazing God in heaven who sees your value.

You are loved beyond measure; the one that created you sees your value, and He says to you, “My Child do you not see your worth? For I am your creator! I see you far more precious than rubies.”

1 John 3:1“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” 

Proverbs 3:15 She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.

Psalm 139: 13–14“You are the one who put me together inside my mother’s body, and I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me. Everything you do is marvelous! Of this, I have no doubt.”

He is with you always ❤
