no one likes me.
i dont deserve to be here.
These are all lies my friend. Lies that the enemy wants you to believe to control your heart.
That fear and self loathing you feel? Thats not from God. I felt it for years and quite honestly? I still struggle with those thoughts.
How do we fight with those thoughts? Those ideas that are poured into our head constantly? with God and love and goodness.
Yes we need to focus on God. Keep our focus on Him – but we arent pastors am i right? I know I am definitely not constantly in the bible. So obviously, there will be other distractions. Well let those other things? Be good things.
Make sure you spend that time with the Lord. But also make sure the other things in your life are up lifting. Like your TV – I wouldn’t recommend watching dr. death but hey – I love Lucy? Or The Andy Griffith show? Or even everybody loves Raymond. Listening to music – i wouldn’t recommend anything that makes you feel crappy. Whatever that is to you. but stick with praise songs, love songs, fun dance beats.
Spend that time in the word first then? Fill your mind with the good.
I tell my kids when fear grips them to remember their list. Their list of what they need to do when they are scared:
- read the bible
- sing a happy song
- list the good things from the day
There are many things in this world that will put thoughts in your head to make you question……well everything. But make sure you take that time and concentrate on God and the good in your life.
