Early on in my journey to fast from insecurity, I had one of those jarring moments. You know the ones I am talking about, right? Where you are in the middle of something and the whole world goes twilight zone on you?
I was in the kitchen teasing my hubby about how much he didn’t love me. I found myself laughing while telling him how I am sure he should have married someone else, someone who didn’t struggle like me. Yep, I should know better.
He knew I wasn’t being serious, but all of the sudden I heard that still small voice deep on the inside.
You will never overcome insecurity if you allow insecurity comments to come out of your mouth in any form.
Whoa! Spanking to the max!
You see, I had someone tell me once to stop doing this, that it wasn’t appropriate. But I figured since it was in the privacy of my own home, it was okay.
But it wasn’t. I am planting seeds, insecurity seeds, into the atmosphere. And I don’t want them to grow.
So, since then, I have been taking my thoughts captive and watching what I said. And as I have, I have noticed that my struggle with insecurity has been so much easier to handle.
But how do you take your thoughts captive? Guess what we will be talking about tomorrow?
