Max Lucado: "Unnoticed? Neglected? Ignored? Not even close—to how God sees you!
If you’re feeling unnoticed and under-appreciated, take a look at how God sees you as recorded in 1 Peter 2:9:
“You are a chosen people, royal priests,
a holy nation, a people for God’s own
Or how about this description from Isaiah 61:10:
"He has covered me with clothes of salvation
and wrapped me with a coat of goodness,
like a bridegroom dressed for his wedding,
like a bride dressed in jewels."
When your self-esteem sags—remember what you’re worth!
Remember that you were bought with a price, not with something that ruins like gold or silver, but with the precious blood of Christ, the pure and perfect lamb.
Meditate on it!
Focus on it!
Allow God’s love to change the way you look at—you!"

Today’s Bible verse: Hebrews 11:1"Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Today’s quote: "What if God wants to use the strains, stains and disappointments we face to refine us – restore us – strengthen us – and to draw us to His side in the desperation?
What if God’s plan is to teach us to know Him in new ways as we struggle to hear, to hope, and to heal?
What if instant healing or quick answers would rob me of greater depth?
If I always get what I hope for right away and can always see clearly, then how will my faith grow?"

Today’s post is a message of encouragement for at-home moms from Donna Otto.
Donna was a keynote speaker at our Hearts at Home conferences in the early years.
Her books, including Loving Life As An At-Home Mom, were a source of encouragement for me during the twenty years I spent as a mother at home.
Father, I see that Your image of me is different than what mine has been.
Open my understanding as to the value I am to You, and what it is that You're planning for my life, that it will count.
As I check out the links on this post, may I be reminded of the help that's available to me to become a better person in the position I find myself in.
I ask for this in Jesus' Name, and for His glory and honor. Amen.
