The width of God's love extends across the entire world and includes every person and thing in creation: "The Lord is righteous in all His ways and loving toward all He has made" (Psalm 145:17, NIV). God loves the whole world (John 3:16).
God never made a person He didn't love. He made you; He loves you; and God doesn't make junk! He loves you unconditionally. He loves you very, very, very, very, very much.
Everyone matters to God; in fact, we see in the life of Jesus that He even loves the unlovely, and those who may feel unlovable. Do you want to know the secret of self-esteem? Here it is: If you want confidence, then understand how much you matter to God. If God loves you, who cares what anyone else thinks. [Selah: think on that]
Because God loves you, there's no need to prove your self-worth. We don't need props anymore to make us feel good about ourselves. We don't have to wear certain kinds of clothes to make us feel we're okay, or drive a certain kind of car to prop up our faltering egos. We don't need status symbols anymore. [Trappings can be deadly mind traps]
It is an act of worship when you accept that God's love is wide enough to include everyone, including you!
