Insecurity. Lack of confidence. To feel self-doubt. It's one thing that people have in common, especially women.
It's not something that just happens to teenage girls going through puberty. Adults feel it too. It's so easy for us to feel insecure with our looks, bodies, what we wear, how we do things, whether or not we are a good mom. When we compare ourselves to other women that seem like they have it altogether, more than likely, they are feeling insecure about something in their lives as well. It's simply the enemy trying to steal our joy, trying to steal our peace.
Too many times, we let the enemy win.
Insecurity plagues me a lot. Depending on the day, depends on what insecurity I have. It's hard to feel like I don't fit in. It's hard to feel like I'm not pretty enough or thin enough. It's hard to not feel like I'm good enough.
But I am enough. You are enough. We all have been fearfully and wonderfully made by God and we are His beautiful creations. Why does my faith lack so often that it's hard for me to remember this?
We are given the choice of free will. We can believe the lies of the enemy and constantly go through each day like we are not good enough. We're not good moms, we're not a good friend, or we're not a good wife.
Or we can believe God's Word and experience joy and peace that only He can give. Don't let the enemy win anymore.
And believe, in everything we do and feel, that we are enough.
