LET’S TALK ABOUT IT
I can remember as a young adult in my 20’s living in sin and temptation. I didn’t know who I was, what I was, or even where is was going! All I did was live to please people, thinking that would make me happy, I was known as the life of the party. From the outside it seemed like I had the best life ever, but really I was dead inside! Gasping for air, silently screaming out for help and wanting to end it ALL! Did you know 74% of girls say they are under pressure to please everyone (Girls Inc, The Supergirl Dilemma). I know how it feels to want to please everyone else to the point where you totally lose your own identity! I woke up one day trying to figure out how did I become this person, I was in bed with a total stranger and it was ME!
WHAT DOES GOD SAY?
“For God gave us a Spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
Never let anyone strip you of your confidence, including yourself! Speak up and be proud of who you are, what you know and what you do. You must acknowledge the thing that destroyed your confidence, remember who you are.
Take notice of all the people who can cultivate greatness in you and sow into your future! Take yourself away from toxic situations, understand that it may take some time.
LET’S PRAY TOGETHER
Dear Heavenly Father I come to you today asking you to help me build my self esteem! Help me to walk away from people, places and things that are idols in my life! Remove anything that strips my Godly confidence and identity in you! Protect me from my own negative thoughts or poor perception of myself and replace it with your word. You said in Psalms 139:14 (NIV),” I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” I agree with you word! Amen.
