About Diana Marie

Diana MarieI AM A WOMAN OF VALUE – I AM A WOMAN OF WORTH – I AM HIS

 

“ God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good.” Genesis 1:31

 

 

 

When you were created God instilled in you Value and Worth. You are His child. Value and Worth are part of your Godly DNA.

Circumstances, events, family situations, or even unwise choices making you feel you haven’t much value or much worth? There are many who feel this way. I knew those feelings for many years. I allowed that kind of thinking to hold me back, to let go of some of my dreams and to settle for whatever life threw my way. Oh, it wasn’t all bad. There were seasons of my life when it was very good.  But, after awhile I would allow my inadequate feelings to rain on my own parade. I would convince myself I didn’t deserve the blessings God gave to me. After all, He knew everything about me. For years I lived life like a seesaw. Sometimes I was up and sometimes I was down. Living in such a way was not only destructive to me, but also to those around me.

I knew I had to make a change. During one of my down times I cried out to God. He had patiently been waiting for me. He embraced me and held me as I tearfully released years of unhappiness and pain. He let me see that the road I was on was dark and bumpy and that the Evil one was just waiting for the times I was at my weakest. He then showed me the road of His Son, Jesus Christ. It looked much safer. He kept silent as I made my choice. I chose His Son’s path.

The Lord knew I was scared, nervous and worried. Who and what would I lose as I walked this new path? He let me know He would be with me. But, He would also put others on my path helping me to learn how to face the adversities of life and how to step over or kick aside the obstacles that might trip me up. I learned that although His path was better it wasn’t always litter -free.

With time and the Lord’s guidance I began to feel my value and worth. I began to enjoy this new feeling! If I felt someone or circumstances was threatening to take it away I knew to run to Him. My Bible became my instructional manual. I learned of the power of prayer and the Rosary. I also asked Mary, the Blessed Mother of Jesus Christ, to show me how to be the woman God created me to be. I read books of how others fought the battles. I learned the serenity of sitting quietly in the Adoration room at church or getting to church early to just sit and fix my eyes up at the Crucifix seeing His love for me. I became an Associate with The Dominican Sisters of Peace.

I’m still a work in progress and will be until I reach my eternal home with the Lord. I don’t always get it 100%, but I keep at it daily. Thankfully, I know the Lord will be with me every step of the way.
