Feeling worthless happens to nearly everyone at some point. The hard part is if you feel this way often. A lot of it depends on your personal history. You may have been criticized or ignored. Or you might have had trouble realizing your dreams.
Regardless of your history, nobody is worthless. People and circumstances do not determine your worth as a human. Don’t let another person’s weakness bring you down. Rise above this. Every life has value. This was established forever by God as his creation is good. But there’s more.
You are so important to God, that he gave up his Son for you.
You may have heard this many times before, but stop and think about it again. God’s Son. His most beloved. Faithful and pure. Given up for you. That’s all the proof your heart and soul need. So listen, believe and be restored.
A message and prayer from Vincent:

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
We love, because he first loved us.
1 John 4:19
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
PRAYER FOR WHEN YOU FEEL WORTHLESS (regular text)
Oh loving Lord,
I feel like all hope is lost. Where is the meaning in my life? I feel so worthless.
If there’s any chance for me it’s here, now, in your presence.
Help me, oh Lord, to remember, even though I heard the story many times. Tell it again to my heart. That a Savior came. A good man. A faithful man. He came for me to know that God loves me.
Giving up his place of purity and power, Jesus took my place on the cross. God loves me so much that he gave his only Son.
Reveal to my heart, oh Lord, the depth of his loving sacrifice. Pure innocence given up for me. Free me from the lie, oh Lord, that my life has no purpose.
Just being alive glorifies you, ror I am your creation.
May I embrace the truth that the hand of God makes my life possible.
And the Son of Man makes my soul free.
In Jesus name,
