Are you insecure?

Are you insecure in any area of your life? Your body? Your appearance? Your finances? Your voice? Your weight?

The “experts” say that insecurities are in epidemic proportions in the world today. And I completely understand! I still have insecurities that I fight to overcome, but I have come a long way. It used to be very hard for me to find anything that I liked about myself…and I could not receive a compliment from anyone. It embarrassed me when people would say I looked pretty, and Satan even convinced me that they were just trying to be nice, but didn’t really think that. I hated my voice, my legs, my freckles, my boney wrists and arms, my gigantic smile showing my molars! ha. And on and on and on. I have discovered that insecurity is rooted in fear…it is a symptom of fear. So, I began to focus intently on consuming my mind and heart with God’s love. Why? Because God’s love casts out fear! It drives it out of our lives. And now I’m using my “voice” to help people! Is that ironic?

Although I’ve come a LOOOOONG way, I noticed last week when I was involved in a conference call with a company we were considering doing business with, I never said a word. Why? Because of my voice! I let the “men” who have deep, authoritative voices do all the talking! That insecurity was coming up again! I just knew that if I said anything they would probably start laughing on the other end and think that I was 9 years old! Obviously, receiving God’s love and driving fear out of our lives is an ongoing process.

Share with me any insecurities that you’ve dealt with and how you’re overcoming them. I’d love to hear them.
