As you partner with God and accept responsibility for your adult choices, emotions and behavior, you take positive steps toward living intentionally. Once you believe that you can change the things about your life over which you have control—in addition to accepting the things you cannot change—you are on the way to increasing self-respect.
You and I gain renewed self-worth when we stop blaming our circumstances, family or friends and start making on-purpose decisions about our immediate and long-range future. When we stay committed to the lifelong pursuit of knowing God and ourselves better, we can enter each new day with confidence and hope.
"It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for," Eph. 1:11 The Message
