Today, let’s continue Jenny’s story. The first part of it, marked by // is my five minute Friday. This post is mostly fiction. The words below the line are my thoughts on the piece. But hey, I think you’ll get it.
//I’ve got daddy issues. Looking in the mirror she finally admitted it to herself. The lump in her stomach wasn’t visible, but she felt it. Oh, how she felt it.
Yesterday, one of her students, Eric, had given her a nice card. He was a cute 6-year old with his heart on his sleeve. Smiling, he had given her this card, stating she was the best teacher ever.
She didn’t feel like the best of anything.//
She could clearly recall the day her dad had left. He had taken with him a piece of her heart, along with her self-worth. She looked at a blurred version of herself. How could she ever get back her worth, the person she had once been?
Even in this, I am with you. She remembered going to church as a little girl. She had believed in God, as a heavenly father. Well, where was he now?
Have you ever felt like Jenny? I, too have wondered where my worth should come from. What I found out, is it has to come from God. Zeph. 3:17 says God delights in you. To Him, you’re the best of everything. Do you believe it?
In His love,
