It’s amazing the lies Satan tells us as we go about our lives. The biggest lie I used to believe was I was not good enough. It didn’t matter what I did in my life those words your not good enough reigned in my head. Growing up I was often told I was stupid and that I would never amount to anything. Not only did my dad and stepmom tell me that but my teachers in school. I really believed I was dumb. My grades were always low and I felt confused and overwhelmed about much in my life.
I now know this is a big fat lie and the reason why I had troubles in school was how I had grown up. Trauma makes it impossible to learn. I had the best survival skills and also never being challenged in my life, my brain did not know how to learn. After I moved to Canada and got lots of extra help in school I realized I was a very smart girl. I always had to work harder than anyone but I got to have the career I wanted. I got to work with children and be a voice for them when they couldn’t do it for themselves. God’s word is full of truth and light. That voice that tells me I’m not good enough is less and less.
It’s been tough for me lately in my life in so many areas. My emotions have been high. Not being able to get the jobs I want, feeling rejection from my husband leaving, left that voice in my head this week that I’m not good enough. I prayed against it straight away and then opened my bible and saw how much God loves me.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud…it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our heartsthrough the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. – Romans 5:2-5
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved. – Ephesians 2:4-5
God’s word is the only place where there is truth. Again I know that I’m more than good enough in His eyes and that this tough time I’m having when I walk side by side with Him will get better and even though it’s tough for me I feel God’s peace around me. That peace only comes from God. If your having a tough time reach out to God he’s waiting for you with His arms open wide. I find much comfort in the words I read from the Bible. I start my mornings out reading what He has written. There is no room for those lies in my head.
