"Insecurity is more than a complex emotion. It is a lie about our God-sanctioned condition. While something may cause us to feel sad, angry, or threatened, we have the power to choose whether or not it gets to assault our security."
Do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will recieve what he has promised. Hebrews 10:35-36
"We don't feel threatened all the time. Just too much of the time. We're up to our ears in social networking, in touch with a hundred women yet especially close to none."
"When we work from an activated mentality of God-given security, we are fully capable of thinking another woman is beautiful without concluding we are ugly. We can esteem another woman's achievements without feeling like an idiot. We can admire another woman's terrific shape without feeling like a slob. Where on earth did we come up with the idea that we have to subtract value from ourselves in order to give credit to someone else?"
We will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original. - The Message, Galatians 5:26 ******************************
What a tough subject...one I certainly can't tackle on my own. Thankfully, God is good. He's gracious. He's forgiving. He loves me.
He really does bring a lot of joy for Sean and I -- he's always doing something cute or silly. He's also served another very important purpose in my life: delaying my baby fever. :) That baby fever, might I add, tends to spike about every other month.
After football practice, Sean brought me a flower then we headed out to dinner.
We hit up a local placed called Theo's -- SO GOOD!
We enjoyed having dinner out, eating leisurely and talking about all that has happened since we got married.
Thanks to my parents for treating us to a nice dinner on our anniversary. It was fun to put on some heels and go on a date with Sean!
