Sister, I know it’s hard. I know you feel incapable and unworthy. I know you feel like you’ll never be good enough or that you won’t succeed.
Guess what? That’s the devil deceiving you. He’s putting those thoughts in your head. You don’t think you matter? Satan. You don’t think you’re able to live a happy life? Satan. You can’t get the “perfect” pics for Instagram. Satan. He’s tormenting you. He’s trying to convince you that you can’t live a happy life.
Wanna know something? I begged my husband to take this pic so that I could have a mini “photoshoot” to find a decent photo for IG. My insecurity? Satan. My feeling of worthlessness and never measuring up? Satan.
YOU are beautiful, friend. You are WORTHY. You weren’t meant to look or be like ANYONE else on this planet, nor should you be. You are special in your own, unique way that the world needs to see.
Stop saying sorry. Stop worrying about things you can’t control. Stop comparing yourselves to others. You were made in God’s image to be exactly you. Find comfort in this.
We ALL make mistakes. We ALL sin and fall short. That doesn’t mean you can’t live a happy and peaceful life. People don’t understand you? So what. Believe in yourself. Believe in God. You are destined for great things.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:11-13
