For most of us, finding time to pause for prayer and meditation can be difficult--but it's essential for strengthening our relationship with God. In Meditations to Grow in Self-Esteem, bestselling author Marie Paul Curley, FSP, helps readers discover how much God loves and cherishes them. Perhaps, like many others, you have been haunted by a lack of self-esteem. Perhaps it has even occasionally completely debilitated you at important moments in life's journey. Lacking a healthy view of self can easily lead to self-hatred, self-loathing, and even self-destructive behavior. It can be hard--sometimes impossible--to love others selflessly when we don't love ourselves and know our own worth. The Bible tells us in countless ways that God loves us. Praying with and meditating on the Word of God can become your daily path for living in the light of God's love. The Just a Minute series of small books provides meditations on scripture, advice for daily struggles, and insights from the Gospel.
This set of reflections is designed to help you develop one area of your spiritual life: growing in self-esteem through the love of God who loves and cherishes you. God will lead you to be interested in certain meditations, so you can go wherever he leads you. Each meditation takes just a few minutes to read, can be chosen at random, and is filled with encouragement and simple insights. These short meditations enable readers to connect with God's heart through scripture and listen to what he is saying to them.
