My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.
Let’s take some personal inventory here a minute: Where is your self esteem? Is it under the rug somewhere or maybe on a shelf for a while because you don’t have time for yourself and I’m sorry but no one is truly full of themselves. They may be selfish but if you know someone who is over the top seemingly arrogant and overflowing with self confidence they probably don’t have ANY confidence in themselves at all and are over compensating.
Where do you look to build your self esteem? Are you counting on someone else to affirm you? Let me just say Ladies, I have been there and tried that idea expecting friends, family or the man in my life to affirm that I was “ok” and that doesn’t work! On good days that can be great, but then along comes a day when they say or do something that hurts your feelings and all of a sudden everything they have ever said that was positive went straight down the drain and you don’t believe it any more.
Your self worth can only come from God! He created you and sees you as beautiful and worthy of His time! Seriously have you ever thought about just that thought alone? The Almighty God who created the Universe by just speaking it into existence sees you for who He created you to be and He says you are worthy of His time! As the Bible says in Romans 8:31 “If God be for us, then who can be against us?”
This is important, in order for you to fully realize your full potential you must have a healthy self esteem! You are worth it, God says you are! We all have our days where we feel like we must be at the bottom of the barrel but I have found that you can’t lay there and wallow in it, you have to pick yourself up, brush yourself off and wait silently for God alone to meet your expectations.
