inspiring wednesday, take 2 & community brew

how many times have i told God, no, i don't want to be like ______? i need to accept me for who God made me. he did it for a reason!! i have a hard time accepting who i am and believing in myself. i am constantly wanting other people's acceptance and approval. i can be a very insecure person. it is something i struggle with daily. but the Lord knows my needs and since i rely on him, he meets my needs and gives me exactly what i need to overcome it.

"the answer to deal with the insecurity, believing that everything God says about us is true." 
-so long insecurity by beth moore
{i'll be posting on this book in my first installment of the sunday book series this sunday!!} 

"for you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. i prasie you for i am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, i know that full well."
-psalm 139:13-14

i'm not saying that i am awesome and don't have anything to work on. i'm not saying i can go around be prideful. i'm just saying that i need to accept my strengths and weaknesses as i grow. satan will use my weaknesses and mistakes against me. i should let God use those for His glory instead of letting satan use them to bring me down. 

i need to remember to just be me. be the the me God created you to be. spend time with him. when i get to know him, i get to know me. i need to ask him who he wants me to be. and listen to what he says.

and now onto the link-up!
