It’s important to be responsible, do whatever it takes to get the job done right and strive for excellence. But it’s even more important to remember that it’s not all up to you. Other capable and competent people are involved, things will get done if you’re not there and God is still going to be at work in every situation. The problem, however, is that this can be hard to remember and even harder to accept when you think you have to prove how valuable you are. That’s why it is essential for you to remember something – your worth is not dependent upon what you do. God loves you unconditionally, God loves you even when you fail miserably and God loves you so much nothing can ever separate you from that love. Start with this reality and you will be amazed what a difference it makes in your life today.

YouthWorker Movement Questions to Consider:
What is on your plate right now that you feel like is “all up to you”?
What have you done lately (that you wish you would not have done) to prove your value and worth?
God loves you unconditionally- can you really accept this? Why or why not?
[You may find it helpful to spend a day on each question and write down your responses. Write whatever comes to mind without judgement. Then take some time to carefully pray through what you have written. And take time to listen because God is talking to you.]
