Self-Worth: Affirming Personal Value

  • Comments 0

You may not have
A dollar in hand
You may not have
A residence to call home
You may not have
Transport to call your own
Yet deep within your heart
Your inner makeup
Is a magnificent work of art
Your person
A kaleidoscope of many colors
Your disposition faithful and true
The spirit within glorious too
What you possess
Is far better and greater
Than any earthly commodity
It takes a quickened heart
An awakened eye
To even see

What you possess within
Enabling you
To repeatedly overcome and win
Is the essential foundation
The ebb and flow
Of the new creation
Better than net worth
A financial portfolio
Or a strong balance sheet
Better than a bikini clad body
On the cover of a magazine
More desirous and needful
Than the accolades of men
Increasingly more satisfying
Than your very best friend
More dear than
Your most loved family member
This personal quality is cohesive
Never to dismember
Never to succumb
To manipulation
Never to yield
With hesitation
Never to surrender
For monetary gratification

Standing tall and sure
In the dark of midnight
Inwardly illuminating
When all is not right
Holding to truth’s anchor
Deep within
Knowing thyself
Your worth within

Dignified and honorable
Cherished and prized
Your self worth
You know
Never have compromised
Of you I am proud
Proud to know
Regardless of which way
Your life will go
What your soul contains
Kings and magistrates don’t disdain
Yet some see it self-righteous
And will defame
But care not for that
Remain true to thyself
For your self-worth is more valuable
Than all else

Through your inner security
All insecurity disappears
The rock of self-worth
Will ground you for years
Come what may
In life you’ll win
Overcome, arise and realize
Your dreams within
Divine destiny don’t despise
You’ll find it not with your eyes
By the Spirit of grace and truth
Guiding you
You’ll discover
That for which He created you

Your soul will feast
On a new and living way
Christ’s seal of approval
His peace deep within
The esteem and adoration of heaven
You have surely got
Though others buy other things
Self-worth you have bought
You counted the cost
You paid the price
You have given freely
Your very own life
Angels are watching
Even heavenly hosts
For in integrity
Your soul makes its boast

And as you retire
At the end of the day
Your head on your pillow
Cares and distractions away
Beneath the blankets
Wrapped up so secure
Know that you
Have found the world’s cure

For this law is written
On the tablet of thy heart
Your self worth you know
And from it never depart
Your self worth you have got
Nobody can take it
With humility and generosity
God can surely make it
Into a mighty serum
To heal the nations
An antibiotic
For alleviation
Many suffer it seems
Not knowing their personal value
Wanting to be somebody
Looking at their net worth
Forgetting their self worth
Focusing on their DO
Rather than their WHO
Love is the answer
You know it indeed
Love for thyself
Your greatest need.
