Been talking to a friend over text these few days about his job search. The process isn’t just physically demanding, requiring time and attention. It is also one that can be rather emotionally challenging while waiting for a reply. And after some time, there is this wonder if the reason we are not receiving that invitation to an interview or getting a job offer is because we are not good enough. We are not wanted.
He’s not the only friend who has talked to me about this. Another friend admitted her struggles with this the other day as well.
We are worth a lot more than we think. A lot more than our circumstance tells us. A lot more than anyone has made us feel. A lot more than anyone has ever said to us. A lot more than this even.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
One thing is true: God deemed us worth enough to be exchanged for, with His Son’s life.
