How to Use the Self-Worth Alphabet

Pick a letter—any letter—and focus on the attribute listed beside it. For example:

F - Fragrant
Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance. (2 Corinthians 2:15)

Copy the Scripture verse and source into your notebook if you do not have the time to memorize it. Put it in your purse (or in some appropriate spot in the house on your stay-at-home day). Read it repeatedly whenever you have a spare moment.

At bedtime, close your eyes and make the effort to inscribe the letter, the attribute and the quote on your brain. Drift off to sleep with a smile on your face, as you think about that beautiful description of who you are. Even if you think that you do not yet possess that attribute, assure yourself that you can and will, eventually.

This is an easy, simple method for you, the godly woman, to strengthen your self-worth arsenal one day at a time. Storing these words and quotes in your memory will guarantee that they resurface in your thoughts and speech right when you need them:

When You Might Need These Scriptures

  • When meanness threatens your sense of worth
  • When ingratitude tempts you to doubt the value of your effort
  • When other human vices frustrate you and sap your spirit
  • When someone else asks to lean on your strength
  • When your joy needs rekindling

How the Use Self-Worth Alphabet in Groups

Feel free to improvise and add other appropriate activities to the three suggestions below. The aim is to help your group focus and remember these positive characteristics.

  • At a weekend female gathering—for retreat or training, assign a letter or two to each woman (depending on the size of the group) so that the entire alphabet is used up. In your closing ceremony, have them participate in a recitation of affirmations: “I (or we) are __________ (assigned attribute) as promised to us in the Scriptures (citing verse and text location). The inspiring, empowering closeout will be long remembered.
  • Play a Bible game at home with friends or relatives, or at a church group event. After a short period of time for individuals to read through the alphabet, test their memories by having the group leader call on individuals to respond with the correct attribute to each letter.
  • Among a circle of friends, inspire each other with stories of how one or more of these attributes helped your spirits soar, in the midst of circumstances which threaten to pull you down.
