Today I was tempted to just write about my birthday and call that my last honest post. But that is too easy and not the point of these seven posts. So today I am going to tackle something that comes out in how I act but not something I detail in my daily conversations and posts. I am going to share some of my insecurities with you. Things that off and on I have had to battle and that Satan likes to use against me. I hope that if you can relate to them you can take encouragement in the fact that you are not alone in feeling this way. I also hope to combat each of these with scripture and truth because so often the things we are insecure about are grounding in Satan's lies.
Insecurity #1: That God doesn't actually have a plan for me and I am fooling myself into thinking he cares about my future.
Truth: Jeremiah 29:11+12
Insecurity #2: There isn't anything in me that makes me worth people or God's attention. (This makes me hard on myself. I think, "If I point out my imperfections first, I beat people to it and they can't point it out. That way they know I agree with them too.")
Truth: 2 Corinthians 5:16-18 (A new creation in Christ, that's enough right there!)
Genesis 1:27 (He wouldn't create something worthless in his own image.)
John 3:16+17 (He died for these imperfections.)
Insecurity #3: No one really understands me.
Truth: Luke 12:7
[I will try to keep this vulnerable, openness in my blogging from now on, but this ends the one week I gave to really telling you everything about my daily walk. Thanks for reading!]
