I used to struggle with my self-esteem and self-confidence because people and situations made me doubt myself... A lot. I thought that I wasn't good enough, that I wasn't pretty enough and that nobody would ever love me.
How could someone love me when I didn't love myself?
I needed to find who I am because if you don't know who you are and what you stand for, it will be way too easy for people to destroy you.
I needed to understand my worth and my purpose in order to get to the next level of my life. What's better than getting closer to God for that?
I took the habit to meditate on the Scriptures and found these verses :
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." - Psalm 139:13-14
These verses don't only read that I was made by God, our Heavenly Father Himself, as He made us His CHOSEN ones; it also says that I am wonderfully made.
So I was chosen? And I am wonderful too? Me, the insignificant little thing on the surface of the earth? YES.
This reactivated my confidence, my self-esteem. I dared to think it: I am worthy.
I am not worthy because I deserve God's grace (nobody does and we will never be grateful enough for it)... I am worthy because I am valuable to His eyes. My life is worthy to Thee.
Knowing that is a good start to find the confidence you need to move forward with your life, find your identity as a human and your purpose as a Christian.
