You might feel unworthy, but you are worth it (Christmas spoken word poem)

A message of love, light and hope this Christmas.

Unworthy, Yet Worth It by Faith Olajuyigbe (From Words of Faith)


He looked at the cross

And He looked at me

'It's worth it', He says

Unworthy, undeserving -

'You're worth it' He says.


Every lash, every whip

The pain -

'You're worth it'

Every wound, every bruise

The shame -

'You're worth it'


They spat at Him

Mocked Him

Left Him best for dead

Yet still He said -

'You are worth it'


'Lord, let this cup pass'

But still, went on


For His love drew Him on.


I look at my life

And I look at Him

'You're worth it' I say


Every tear, every struggle

My little cross that I bear

'You're worth it'


And so, I'll press on

Through the trials and the lows

Because one day I'll meet my King

And

It'll all be worth it.


My eyes fixed on the cross

Mind stayed on above

It's worth it, dear Child of God.


I picked up my cross

I followed Christ

For He is worthy


And all because

He thought me worth it.


For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8

But why did Jesus die? And what does He have to do with me?


We are the reason for the season. The reason that Jesus bore every burden and died for our sins. Whilst we were unworthy, His abounding LOVE said that we were worth it. Jesus was, and still is, the perfect sacrifice for all of our mistakes.


In the midst of it all - the pandemic, the pressures, the pain - I want you to remember that God still loves you. That God still cares. And that He is very much in control.


I know this year's festive season will look very different for us all. I know the virus may have halted many plans time and time again. Despite this, I wanted to share a message of love, light and hope in the midst of what has been a challenging year.


It takes faith to look up, push forward and believe that it will get better.


God will work it out.
