Psalm 62:5

My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.


Let’s take some personal inventory here a minute:  Where is your self

esteem?  Is it under the rug somewhere or maybe on a shelf for a while

because you don’t have time for yourself and I’m sorry but no one is truly

full of themselves.  They may be selfish but if you know someone who is over

that idea expecting friends, family or the man in my life to affirm that I

was “ok” and that doesn’t work!  On good days that can be great, but then

along comes a day when they say or do something that hurts your feelings and

all of a sudden everything they have ever said that was positive went

straight down the drain and you don’t believe it any more.

beautiful and worthy of His time!  Seriously have you ever thought about

just that thought alone?  The Almighty God who created the Universe by just

speaking it into existence sees you for who He created you to be and He says

you are worthy of His time!  As the Bible says in Romans 8:31 “If God be for

us, then who can be against us?”


This is important, in order for you to fully realize your full potential you

must have a healthy self esteem!  You are worth it, God says you are!  We

all have our days where we feel like we must be at the bottom of the barrel

but I have found that you can’t lay there and wallow in it, you have to pick

yourself up, brush yourself off and wait silently for God alone to meet your
