"I awaken to my true self by remembering that God holds me in high esteem."
If ever thoughts of being unloved, of being incapable or undeserving come to mind, I remember how God sees me. God holds me in such high esteem, how can I think anything less of myself? How can I act as if I am anyone else but the loved and capable person I am?
Remembering that I am loved by and precious to God brings out the best in me. And when I think or interact with others, I know that they are precious and loved by God, too. When I look at others and remember they are sacred creations of God, I can do no less than love and hold them in high esteem as well.
Yes, I remember that we are all loved by God and precious to God, and in that remembering I discover the true joy of spirit.
"You are precious in my sight, and honored, and I love you."
- Isaiah 43:4
