The Lies I Believe

These are the lies that I tell myself.
🌱
That I’m a poor communicator and slow-witted since I prefer to think first and speak later.
🌱
That I’m ineffectual at my job because I don’t have two specific letters after my name. That I have no business telling people what they need to do to be happy, because I’m still trying to figure it out for myself. 
🌱
That I’m an inferior leader. That I’m average and ordinary, inadequate and never enough. Ordinary people rarely are impactful.
🌱
That being so tall makes me less feminine.
🌱
That I’m not a nurturing, fully-engaged mother because I like my job and I want a career.
🌱
That since my hair is getting thin and my eyelids are getting crinkly, one day my husband will become bored with me.
🌱
That my social anxiety is an acceptable excuse to avoid the people that I need to reach out to.
🌱
That since I have nothing original to say, I shouldn’t bother writing anything at all.
🌱
That everyone has to like me.
🌱
These are LIES. Real lies. These lies are truly offensive to a Creator who made me in a very specific way, with a very specific skill set, and whatever my deficiencies are His grace is all I need. 🌱
This is the truth that God speaks over me.
🌱
I am worthy.
I am loved.
I am enough.
I am His.
🌱
It really is this simple.
🌱
So when the lies come, this is what I will hold onto.
