Our earthly parents are the first people to teach us about love and security, but their love is imperfect. In this video, we hear from bestselling Christian author, Lysa TerKeurst, as she opens up about her struggles to define her worth when her father wasn’t giving her the love she needed. “When I was a little girl, I remember getting all dressed up one night just to try to get my dad’s attention. And I twirled around and around in my dress and I remember thinking, ‘daddy, do you notice me?’ But he never even looked at me.”

His inattention translated to Lysa as a personal indictment of her value. Her feelings of worthlessness were only magnified when he eventually left his family for good, which had a hurtful impact on her relationship with the Lord as well. “I don’t matter. I’m worth nothing to my dad and even more disturbing, I fear I that I am worth nothing to God.”

However, God is a perfect father, one who loves relentlessly. In this video, TerKeurst explains the healing power of God’s love. “God’s love is not based on me; it’s simply placed on me.” Watch to learn more about God’s perfect and restorative love.
