4 Bible Verses To Read When You’re Struggling With Self-Worth

Scriptures about self-worth

Have you ever found yourself doubting your worth while dating? It's easy to feel rejected or not good enough when things don't work out. As a Christian, you might struggle even more with these feelings while trying to stay true to your faith. Fortunately, the Bible has a lot to say about worth. Here are four scriptures about self-worth to encourage you on your dating journey.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

You have immense value because God intentionally created you. Even without anyone else’s approval, you are completely valued by God. When you root your self-worth in this truth, you can approach dating with confidence and a healthy sense of self. It helps you remember that you deserve someone who appreciates and respects the wonderful person God made you to be.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

God has a plan for your life. When you submit to His will, He can do amazing things through you. Too often — and especially when dating — we get caught up in seeking validation from others and forget our true purpose. But remember, you are God's handiwork, created with a unique mission. Focusing on His plan for you helps you stay grounded and trust that the right person will appreciate you for who you truly are.

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

Sometimes we struggle with our self-worth when we think God doesn’t care about us — or our desire for a relationship. But the truth is God cares deeply about every aspect of your life, including your relationships. Matthew 6:26 reminds us that if God takes care of the birds, He will surely take care of you, too. You are incredibly valuable to Him, and He wants what is best for you.

“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

This passage beautifully illustrates just how valuable you are to God. If He remembers even the sparrows, how much more does He care for you, knowing every detail of your life, even down to the number of hairs on your head? When it comes to dating, this truth can be incredibly empowering. Knowing you are deeply valued by God can help you approach relationships with confidence, understanding that you deserve someone who recognizes and cherishes your unique worth just as He does.
