Heavenletter #5025 Next to Your Worth, What Can the World Offer?, August 28, 2014 http://heavenletters.org/next-to-your-worth-what-can-the-world-offer.html
What does it mean when you say that someone believes in you? It’s hard to put your finger on it, yet this recognition lifts you and strengthens you. It gives you a great reserve of confidence and gratitude. Someone’s believing in you is worth a treasure. It is like money in the bank. If all else fails, this person believes in you. It is a great thing to have someone see your worth and believe in you. For you to know this is to wear a magnificent 10-carat diamond around your neck that brightens everything. That someone believes in you is a great gift. This gift rightfully belongs to everyone, yet not everyone receives it.
This belief in you is greater than personal love. It is another dimension of love. It is not only that someone’s eyes light up when they see you and welcome you. It is not only an embrace. It is more.
Fortunate are you to have this. It is like rose food for a rose. It is an elixir. It is manna from Heaven. Fortunate are you to have soaked up this streak of good fortune. This stands you in good stead. This is far better than winning at poker. This is far greater than an A on a test. That someone believes in you is more than anything else because it gives you a foundation to believe in yourself. Someone sees you. Someone sees the Truth of you that most in the world may be blinded to.
Some of My children may never find this or never seem to. Some of My children have the opposite. It is as if their belief in themselves is knocked down at many turns. Instead of feeling strengthened, their self-regard is torn down, torn apart, cut to smithereens. There is no diamond left, not of any size.
And so, for some of My children, perhaps for many of My children, they are reduced to playing the role of a beggar as they hold their hand out for some spare sense of self-worth. Their sense of self hangs together by a thread, and they search for someone to recognize something in them that they desperately desire to be seen within them somewhere.
Overly dependent may they become on approval from others. They forsake themselves and take on the appraisals of others. Understandably, the appraisals of others, for whatever others’ appraisals are worth or not worth, My children live by them. Their dependency on a few crumbs from others may well be monumental.
Then it is that My children become jellyfish without a backbone of their own.
Come, let Me restore you to your natural state. Let Me restore you heart and rebuild your backbone. You are far greater than any one on Earth can assimilate. Come, believe in Me, and believe in yourself.
Your worth is beyond belief, My beloveds. Truly, you are not so dependent upon the outside opinions from the world. The greatest medal of honor in the world is not worth anything next to you. The greatest fame and adulation of the world is not worth anything next to you. Millionaireship is not worth anything next to you.
It is said that people are to believe in Me. Oh, yes, that’s fine, yet greater is the opportunity I offer you to believe in yourself and others. Belief in yourself and belief in Me and belief in others can go hand in hand. We, the so-called you, and the so-called Me, and the so-called others are worth more than all the adulations of the world. Next to Our worth, what can the world offer? If you must have a report card, go by the report card I give you:
You are My beautiful child. You are worth far more than the Kohinoor diamond. You are worth more than the whole wide world. You are worth everything to Me, and I am blessed to see you in your full glory which is the same as Mine. Now see the glory that is Ours.
