God Values Me

One issue plagued me for a lot of my life. What is my purpose? Why did God make me? What contribution am I supposed to make in my lifetime.

I saw this as what am I supposed to do or achieve. Achievement became my goal in life. When my big dream of publishing a regional Christian newspaper was realized I thought I was finally on the right track.

When the internet came into existence and we had to fold the newspaper due to lack of revenue, I hit rock bottom and felt like my purpose for living was gone. I wallowed in despair. However the despair led me to finally throw myself into the weight loss journey I knew God had for me. That led me to writing my first book which catapulted me into coaching, speaking and writing more books.

However, God still had more work for me to do. I still had the stronghold of believing my value was in what I could do instead of who I am. That stronghold had to be broken.

This stronghold carried over into me continuing to try to solve my issues by overeating. If you need help understanding that you are valuable to God, join us in Overcomers Academy. Go here: https://teresashieldsparker.com/overcomers/.
