Worthless oh Worthless why do you vex me
Why do I let you hold me back
A voice in my head mighty and strong
Quick to point out all that I lack
Worthless oh Worthless I hate what you say
You’re downbeat and hateful
Each and every day
But I continue to listen
Although I know better
Your trap is perfect
You know me to the letter
Worthless the lion Worthwhile a sigh
How do I feed the good voice inside
Worthless oh Worthless you think that you’ve won
Worthwhile bounce back and the battle’s begun
How can a sigh beat a lion you ask
The sigh’s not alone he has help with the task
The helps name is Jesus Savior and Lord
He wins the battle with just a word
Worthless I’m saved, redeemed, and empowered
Worthless return to your den you’re a coward
I can do all things through Christ he’s my strength
He never gives up He’ll go to any length
Worthwhile he listens and changes a sigh to a roar
He listens to Jesus and wants to know more
We open our bible our mind and our heart
Me and Worthwhile we make a new start
It happened for me it can it can for you too
Jesus can make all things brand new
I have a feeling that we all struggle with inner voices that tell us we are failures or we are inadequate in some way. This has been an ongoing struggle in my life. I find that when I’m feeling bad about myself that it impacts just about every area of my life. Relationships feel strained or empty, pleasant things seem to lose their appeal and tasks become harder. When this happens if I don’t become aware of it soon enough it feeds itself and becomes stronger and stronger, continually getting harder to bear.
I thank God for the Holy Spirit who will always remind me that the failure Worthless says I am is a lie. I thank Him for the Word that speaks truth to me and teaches me who I really am and what I am truly capable of accomplishing.
It’s a cliche I know but breakthroughs only come after you hit an obstacle. So when you feel disempowered or out of favor, when your prayer life seems listless don’t quit. This is the time when your Worthless is pressing in, press back. Your breakthrough will come and you’ll look back at that previous time and all you’ll see will be the broken bits of what ever it was that was holding you down.
The Bible tells us that every battle is spiritual. I believe this is true. If you are going to win spiritual battles you are going to need spiritual weapons and defenses. You need a robust prayer life, the Word of God, and the indewlling power of the Holy Spirit. If you are a believer you already have the latter of those if you’re not winning your battles go and get the rest. You never have to fight alone.
I pray for all of you my friends that you get this. The Word tells over and over that God will never leave you to fight alone. He leads you forward, He’s got your back. You are fully equipped. Go fight, go be victorious, give glory to God.
