It is the way you view yourself?
YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU THINK!
Matthew 10:26-31 New Century Version (NCV)
Fear God, Not People
26 “So don’t be afraid of those people, because everything that is hidden will be shown. Everything that is secret will be made known.
27 I tell you these things in the dark, but I want you to tell them in the light. What you hear whispered in your ear you should shout from the housetops.
28 Don’t be afraid of people, who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. The only one you should fear is the one who can destroy the soul and the body in hell.
29 Two sparrows cost only a penny, but not even one of them can die without your Father’s knowing it. 30 God even knows how many hairs are on your head. 31 So don’t be afraid. You are worth much more than many sparrows.
LET US TALK ABOUT IT ~ SELF WORTH and FEAR
The way we view ourselves really matters in life. I had times of life when I felt weak or a failure from making mistakes. Let us not forget we are all human and make mistakes. That is why God's word gives us a chance for do overs in life and asking forgiveness for sin. Sin isn't always thought about in telling little lies or commenting a little sin, but sin is sin. Just like wrong is wrong or right is right.
Don't be afraid of people and learn to stand up for yourself. I am a strong woman, but I have moments of feeling like this little cat in this picture above. I didn't see myself stronger or even having the strength to overcome somethings of my life, but God did. He knew me from the inside and began to teach me to focus on him. I tried for years to get some people to be my friend, praying and searching for answers, when all along God wanted me to break the mold of my life an allow him freedom to change it. Someone people were never meant to stay in your life forever.
I know people who has friendships built on buying things. As long as I buy you this, then you will stay my friend. This is not a friend at all. I just had the best 60th birthday every and it wasn't about a gift but about time. Time spent with me and letting me know how important I am to God. People would say that God loves me and he wants the best for me. I totally know that, but it felt so good to hear that. Some of us are word people and words speaks to our hearts. Actually, words speaks to all of hearts and moving from a hurtful place to a joyful place is our choice. Letting yesterdays go and grabbing onto this day!
The Bible speaks of fear God. It doesn't mean to be afraid of him, but fear of not serving him brings destruction. I heard someone say the other day that they were going to hell. It seem like a plan for them, but I don't believe that. I believe they have a choice to ask God into their hearts and a new beginning happens. I shared hope with them and a smile came upon their face. I like being real with people because we need that in life.
Each day when I get up, I thank God for another day of life. I don't know the details about today, but God has a plan. Jeremiah 29:11 speaks of a plan, a promise and a future.
God has created you for purpose and looking into the mirror to see a stronger person today, than yesterdays of life. You are a winner and greater things are in this day.
I hope you will pass hope onto a friend today and surround yourself with people who speak life words. My prayers continue for you and your families/friends.
