Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
By: Teresa Criswell

"But [even] the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not be struck with fear or seized with alarm; you are of greater worth than many [flocks] of sparrows."
~ Luke 12:7 ~

This is an early Mother's Day Writing that the Lord imparted into me as I drifted off to sleep last night.

I dedicate this writing to my mom and my daughter...I pray you are blessed as I was:

My Mother's Question To Me
By: Teresa Criswell

"Do you know your worth?"
"For you are beautiful to me and you are priceless."
As a child my thoughts answered back,
"I believe you mom."

My mother's question to me as a teenager,
"Do you know your worth?"
"You are beautiful to me and no matter what they say, you are priceless."
With a fake smile I pretended to agree, yet my thoughts answered back,
"That's not what they have said based on what I look like, I don't believe you."

My mother's question to me as a young adult,
"Do you know your worth?"
"You are beautiful to me and no matter what they say, you are priceless."
With tears in my eyes as a young adult, my thoughts answered back,
"No, I don't believe that, for the world around me has told me,
that my value equals what I become, what I do and what I give out."

My mother's question to me as a wife and mother,
"Do you know your worth now?"
As a wife and mother, my thoughts answer back,
"Yes, for I know my position as a wife and mother are priceless."

I ponder with great responsibility, I must know my value
So that my husband can 'conquer' as he is encouraged by my words and actions.
I must know my value for my daughter as she watches me and listens to see if I allow the world, and my circumstances to determine my value, which in turn will tell her how she is valued.
Or do I allow my Father God to remind me of my value through Him?

My question to you that my mother would ask,
"Do you know your value?"
If the answer is no, remember the Cross of Calvary
That Jesus willingly died upon for you and for me.

When your Father God asks,
"Do you know your value?"
What will your answer be?
Answer back with your life,
"Yes Lord, for I am not measured by what I do
but what You Victoriously did for me."

Be blessed as others see the value upon your head is priceless, so that you may reveal their value.

For He has called you 'priceless' through His actions.
