I have discovered over my years of pastoral counseling that the subject of self-worth is a matter of universal concern and an issue with which few are comfortable. Much of what we've learned differs profoundly from God's view. In the links below, I unveil common lies about our who we are and steer you to God's gift of a worth that will never fade.
Learning (and believing) who God says I am has profoundly changed my own life and ministry. I pray it will have profound impact on you as well.
Below are links to articles I believe you'll find useful:
- My Geode
- Comparing Ourselves with Others
- Fear of Failing
- Accepting God's Delight
- Being Me at the Airport
- Redeemed (I'm Not Who I Used to Be)
- Self-Esteem & Self-Worth (They're Not the Same)
- Christian Hypocrisy
- Honor All (What's Involved & Why)
- Disagree Agreeably (Antonin Scalia)
I regularly lead "Identity Groups" where we talk together about how (and why) God looks on His people with deep delight. We use my book, Grappling with Your Identity, to guide our discussions. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in joining one of these 7-week evening groups.
Grappling with Your Identity is available in paperback from the BibleGrapes Bookstore.
