In our modern, ever-changing world, there are many things that can cause us to doubt our self-worth. When this happens, remember that your Heavenly Parents love you.
There’s so much going on in this modern world, and it’s so filled with challenges and trials that we can easily find ourselves doubting our self-worth. But there is hope. In times of self-doubt, we can remember that we have Heavenly Parents who always love us. This knowledge will give us the strength we need to face the challenges in this world.
In Elder Hugo Montoya’s general conference talk “The Eternal Principle of Love,” he reminds us that our Heavenly Parents’ love is eternal. He says, “Our Heavenly Father’s love for each of His children is real. He is there for each one. I don’t know how He does it, but He does.” This truth means that our Heavenly Parents will love us no matter what happens to us during our lifetimes.
Knowing that our Heavenly Parents always love us will bring great strength and hope into our lives, helping us overcome feelings of self-doubt. After all, Heavenly Father created the Earth, the heavens, other forms of life, and countless other creations, yet he loves us more because we are his children. This knowledge should help us understand our worth and potential.
All you need is to open yourself up to your Heavenly Parents and let their love into your life. Let it strengthen and uplift you. Let it remind you who you really are: a child of Heavenly Parents, a child with infinite and divine potential. That is the truth, and it will never change, no matter what the world tries to tell you or make you believe. Whenever the world and all its troubles start to wear you down, all you need to do is to turn to your Heavenly Parents and let their love surround you.
