I believe that many of our core struggles in life come from not fully understanding who we are.
I believe that so many of us simply can’t see ourselves clearly.
Think about it!
Do you truly understand your worth?
Do yourself a favor and let an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ remind you:
Incredible, isn’t it?
How different would your life be if every single day you took confidence in knowing you are a child of God whose potential is divine and whose worth is infinite?
President George Q. Cannon said this: “There is not one of us but what God’s love has been expended upon. There is not one of us that He has not cared for and caressed. There is not one of us that He has not desired to save, and that He has not devised means to save. There is not one of us that He has not given His angels charge concerning. We may be insignificant and contemptible in our own eyes, and in the eyes of others, but the truth remains that we are the children of God, and that He has actually given His angels—invisible beings of power and might—charge concerning us, and they watch over us and have us in their keeping.”
To those who feel lost, worthless, discouraged, overwhelmed, hopeless, or depressed, I propose one thing:
You are simply unaware of who you are.
You may let the transient losses and hurts of life get you down, but if you only knew what lied in your future, you would be filled with a light that could never be darkened. If you only understood the power and glory of who you are, you would never let anyone make you feel inferior. You would cease to give any place in your heart to worldly cares that lie so far beneath your privileges. Your heart would be so consumed with the light of Christ and the love of God that meaning and peace would fill your soul to an extent you never thought was possible.
My dear friends, try to see yourself as your Father in Heaven sees you.
And then with confidence, go forward and share your light with the world!
