Sometimes We Just Need to Hear This...

I got this in an email and I just set and let it sink in. I reread it and I thought of all the times I am my own worst enemy. I think bad of myself and I feel defeated. Truthfully, getting in that mind set is how you let some one abuse you, you feel you deserve it. For years I had a sign on my bathroom mirror that said Lorie is a precious Child of God. I would look at that some days and think, God- I need to feel that today. I have alot of stuff going on today and I don't feel like your precious child. I think satan likes to get ahold of us and work in our minds. I thank God that in 1 Samuel 16:7 it tells us-"The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man Looks at outward appearance ; but the Lord looks at the heart." So today I needed reminding....
Girl, just look at you, with your pretty self. You are so beautiful! Not only are you beautiful, but you have the nerve to be talented and gifted by God. Hold your head up Girl and know that you are loved and appreciated. Don't give the enemy any place to cause you to have low self-esteem or doubt. You are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made. This is your year to decree it and speak it! This is the year of new beginnings. So get your step on Girl, because God is faithful to perform all that He has promised to you! Be confident in Him and His word. The words you speak from your mouth determine your outcome. Why not speak good and positive things over your life Girl? You are not defeated but rather you are more than a conqueror. You have been through a lot in your life and look at you now, just as pretty and as strong as ever! Oh, how blessed you are. Look what God has done and look where He has brought you from. Begin to bless God and praise Him for all thatHe has done, and for making you so beautiful! He had you in His precious hands all the time. Your life is orchestrated by Him. He knows you and what is best for you.Believe that He has even greater things in store for you and your family. Girl, get over the silly stuff and grab hold of faith. Seek God as never before. Sure, times are hard, but God is Good! Learn to love who He has made you to be. There is no one like YOU. -Author Unknown Enjoy the Love of Jesus and Enjoy Life!

You have the warmest hugs of anyone I know, they come from your heart. When you have those feeling just call me,one or all of a zillion girl friends you have that love you and we will remind you just how beautiful and loved you are!

A good reminder!

Did you know you can use dry erase markers on your mirror? It's great for writing scripture or sweet notes to someone special! Or, notes of affirmation to yourself!

Blessings!

Lorie,
I love this post. It is so true. I am constantly praying to become the woman that God made me to be. Satan loves to play with our minds. My husband recently discovered how Satan was using discouragement in his job to attack him. Satan is nothin but a liar. Hope you are doing well and that you have a tremendously blessed day.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

I guess that is a strong hold in MANY women's lives. I know it is in mine. Seems that sometimes, no matter who says something lovely and good, the woman inside who is trapped by the stronghold rejects it. There are times that the good Lord Himself whispers words of encouragement and affirmation, and I reject them in the flesh. And it can only be overcome through Him.

I needed to hear this.

I really needed to hear that, Lorie. Did you write that? I need to print that out and put it somewhere in my home where I can see it and read it every day.

Thanks for sharing that.
