Have you ever thought about yourself as an asset? Most of us have not. Similarly I didn’t until one day in a sermon at my church, a guest pastor talked about being an asset just as God designed you.
An asset is a useful or valuable thing, person, or quality. Property owned as having value and available to meet debts and commitments. Synonyms: benefit, blessing, advantage, talent, investment, resources, goods, and belongings. An asset is designed to increase in value the longer you have it. It grows in value.
You bring value to others as well as yourself in all that you do.
Specifically after a divorce you may not think you are, but you are and that is how God sees you so you should see yourself that way as well. Do you treat yourself as an asset? I invite you to spend some time thinking about this.
Think about all areas of your life. Do you view yourself as an asset at work? How do you view yourself in your family? Do you view yourself as an asset in your friend group? How do you view your role in the community?
I hope your answer is ‘yes’ to all of the above questions, because that’s the truth. You are an asset in any and all aspects of your life and it’s important that you recognize and acknowledge that about yourself.
If others do not treat you as an asset, let them go.
It’s very important to know your value. You were designed perfectly with God given abilities, characteristics, talents and gifts.
Never doubt or second guess yourself and how much of an asset you are in this world and in God’s eyes. Matthew 10:29-31, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
Also remember that as we age, just like an asset, we become more valuable because we have knowledge and wisdom which we’ve acquired over the years through various experiences. Share yourself with the world.
You are an asset. You have great value. Receive it!
Even when you feel like you are not, know that God views you as one, and that’s all that matters. If you struggle with receiving the truth that you are an asset with great value, ask Father God how He sees you and listen to what He says. Then write it down in your journal and review it several times a day until you come into agreement with Him!
I believe God has your picture on His refrigerator, just as you have your children’s pictures on yours! After all, He is our Heavenly Father!
