What Am I Worth?

“The value of a person isn’t measured on an applause meter; it’s measured in the heart and mind of God.”  ~John Fischer

As a singer/songwriter, it’s all too easy to get caught up in rating your applause meter.  Before I knew that God loved me unconditionally, irregardless of my performance, that’s how I worked, lived, was motivated.  And I tell you, it’s no way to live.  One mistake and you’re feeling pitiful about yourself, berating yourself at every lukewarm reception.  But Jesus sees me differently.  He loved me way before I took notice of Him.  I can mess up every note, every song, and He will not change in His feelings toward me, the child that He has made.  And that makes me priceless, untouchable by applause or lack thereof.  Child of God, person made and loved by the King of the entire world.  Way too much for my mind to fully understand, but what parts I can take in, I cherish.  Blessings on your day today, Lisa
