Woman, You are Worthy!

woman and prayer

These past few months have been quite revelatory for me. I have found myself ministering to the spirits and souls of young women going through various crises. The most dangerous has been that of spiritual well-being. These women are broken and beat down by a belief system which they have internalized that tells them they are not worthy or valuable, and much of this is coming from their life partners. It does not help that media continues to perpetuate this belief system, especially for women of color. This belief of unworthiness has become their kryptonite, and it is killing them and their children.

Today, the world is celebrating Giving Tuesday, and although it is supposed to be about giving support to charities, I think it should also be about giving to self: give yourself hope and love and truth. You cannot help others if you first cannot help yourself. We have got to change the recordings of the belief system that says we are nothing. You were not put on this Earth to be nothing. “Women must stop letting the world – men – make them feel unworthy. We ARE worthy. We are strong. But we let things interfer with our strength. God gave Eve to Adam because he needed her” (G. Oglesby).

Know your worth. Walk in the truth of your existence. Our children  are watching…and waiting. Namaste.

One Response to Woman, You are Worthy!

  1. So very true… I’ve been caring for others for so long that I started neglecting my own basic needs. …endured great pain. Suffered great loss of time, money, emotional and spiritual energy, thinking it would be worth it because I was investing in others. NOT SO! Not when “others” don’t appreciate all that you are sacrificing on their behalf. Take it from me, don’t cast your pearls before swine.
