Is it just me or are we are our worst critics.

If we could read a article on ourself that is written from the words we have thought or spoken over ourselves all our lives we would be destroyed and depressed.
We would never speak of someone else like we speak of ourselves, it would be too cruel.

I have always loved that song from my home boy, Long Island’s own Billy Joel, read these lyrics:

“Just The Way You Are”

Don’t go changing, to try and please me
You never let me down before
Don’t imagine you’re too familiar
And I don’t see you anymore
I would not leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far
I took the good times, I’ll take the bad times
I’ll take you just the way you are

Don’t go trying some new fashion
Don’t change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care

I don’t want clever conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are.

I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew
What will it take ’till you believe in me
The way that I believe in you.

I said I love you and that’s forever
And this I promise from my heart
I couldn’t love you any better
I love you just the way you are.

God made us just the way HE wants us, and He likes us this way.
God knew what He had in us and He still died for us.
He could not love you and me any better and He loves us forever.

“For we are God’s MASTERPIECE. He has created us new IN CHRIST Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)

We need to move past our own self bashing and enter into self exalting according to what God see’s in us.
Random degrading thoughts will come and try to hold our brain HOSTAGE. It’s a constant fight!
Here what we need to do:

Build up your confidence through the words that God speaks over you.
Study and find out who you are In Christ and start replacing your thoughts of “Im not enough, I’m never gonna be enough” mentality with who you are through Jesus…. who lives BIG in you.

The enemy is always trying to give us thoughts of discouragement, but we have to TAKE BACK that ground in our mind. Give those thoughts NO real estate in your life.
God says you are amazing, powerful, worth loving and all of heaven is cheering you on!
We are God’s special creation. His beautiful masterpiece!

And if HE Loves us this way, then we should TOO!

What are the things that you are saying about yourself that empower you instead of tearing you down?
