What is your opinion of yourself? Who do you think you are? The scriptures say that you are made in the image of God. The Psalmist said to God, “For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You because I am unique in remarkable ways” (Ps. 1[spp-timestamp time="39:13"]-14).
God made you. God loves you. And God wants you. You have a place in His family. If you don’t understand this, you may think of yourself as an alcoholic, or a prostitute, but that is not the way God sees you. God sees you as His creation, and He longs for you to respond to His love. The most powerful thing you can do for yourself and others is to turn to God and give Him your life.
