After a restless night of sleep I came across a blog I wrote while back and it was very timely for me.....maybe for you as well? I struggle so much with my own self worth. Feeling inadequate and that I don't measure up to even my own expectations of myself. This isn't a "please feel sorry for Myranda plug". This is me being real in hopes that it touches someone and gives you some encouragement to go through your day with the Joy of the Lord. "What requires more faith? To forgive someone for hurting you or raise someone from the dead? To get out of bed and of about your day when the weight of life is pressing down on your chest or to believe for someone's salvation? What about when the devil is whispering convincing lies in your ear? Isn't it a fact that there is always an element of truth in a lie. Yes, I am extremely selfish and have nothing to offer anyone around me. Yes, I a prone to depression. HOWEVER...gods word tells me very clearly that I more than a conqueror and that the same power that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me! That he has made me in the likeness of Jesus Christ! That NO weapon formed against me will prosper! That the JOY of the Lord is my strength! I could go on and on but i think you are catching my drift. There is what I know and what I KNOW...you know? I have been struck with the truth that I can actually rely on what Gods word says. DUH!!! Why do we overcomplicate Gods simple truths? Why do we feel the need to overcompensate with our intellect what the Lord has made plain enough? Sometimes I truly believe that my children understand the mysteries of god better than I ever will."
