I was going to start with sob stories about some unpleasant experiences that caused a dent in my self-esteem and caused a lot of confident issues but forget that. We all have had bad experiences in life and even the bible tells us that sufficient for each day is its own troubles so we are all bound to face some sort of challenges at one point or the other in our lives.
The question is how we respond to the different situation in our lives. Some of us may be in or may have grown up in very nasty circumstances could have been bullied (like me) or abused or had gone through some sort of bad circumstance that caused you to lose faith in yourself and not be confident in who you are today.
I am a firm believer of the fact that you are what you continuously give heed to and believe. There’s a popular scripture “Faith comes by hearing” and most of us believe what we believe mostly based on what we’ve been taught, seen and learnt from childhood mostly from those who raised us.
God wants us to turn our ears and eyes in the right direction and take charge of the situation in your life, if there’s anything I’ve learnt from experience is that God’s word brings life and healing. For some of you it may mean repeating these words to yourself every day to get yourself to believe that you are not a mistake or a waste of space and you have a purpose on this earth and you’re just darn beautiful because God made you! I have put a few scriptures below that I encourage myself daily with [you can google it if you don’t have a bible]; keep repeating it to yourself and remember God’s word never returns to him void…
[2 Timothy 1:7, Romans 8:28, Psalm 139:13-14, Proverbs 3:26, Philippians 4:6-7, 2 Corinthians 12:9]
