.

As I sit here just battling with some thoughts {mean thoughts.. Jesus help}, I have noticed over and over that we as women feel the need to impress other women {not impress men}.

I often wonder: WHY is this such an issue?!??  Is it our need to be noticed, to be affirmed or to feel important??!! Why do we strive to impress?? Why do we compare ourselves to others and then imitate others?? Is it our self doubt in search of answers or recognition??

.

When we were young, it was showing off our ability to do a cartwheel or our Crayola pack of 96 with the built in sharpener, or our Barbie clothes and house. And, it eventually grew into showing off our new boyfriend, that Wet Seal outfit, or the tan line that we got {with baby oil} while laying out on the roof.

.

Well, shucks, y’all, if not dealt with properly, this pattern of striving for attention follows us into adulthood. We try to form ourselves into this mold that imitates those that we look up to. It becomes a vicious cycle. We start performing for the applause when the only eyes that really matter is the Father!!!!! We forget that His eyes are always on us, and His eyes and attention is the only thing that brings assurance and security to our heart and mind.

.

TRUTH FACT: God didn’t tell us to live life to impress others. He told us to LOVE others.


“The ultimate freedom is to be FREE from the need to impress others.”
-Joyce Meyers

Let’s be real.. We have all struggled with not knowing who we are at times. I remember wanting to be just like my sister, Amber, because everybody liked her and noticed her beauty. Well, I learned the hard way.

So, here it is. The moment of truth is being revealed!!!!

Key to overcoming: God didn’t call me to be her. He called me to be ME!!!!! For reals though!!!!!!!!!!!

I battled with my identity until I got ahold of this revelation.. this truth!! Freedom takes place when we learn that our heart is wired to only need AND want His acceptance and approval. We become “free to be me” when we say “YES”!!!

.

“When feelings of inadequacy come creeping in, let’s park our minds in God’s truth!!”

    I feel asleep last night praying for peace and guidance because I’m just feeling so lost right now when it comes to breaking bad habits and living with more intention! And the result is self doubt, so this post really spoke to me today! Thank you for always bringing the love and light to my internet!
