You aren't good enough.
I told you they would never like you.
How dare you think you could be a part of their lives.
You are worthless.
THANK GOD, I have the tools to speak the truth!
I AM GOOD ENOUGH!
THEY DO LIKE ME!
I AM A PART OF THEIR LIFE!
I AM WORTHY, PRECIOUS, and FREAKING AWESOME!!
Seriously, do I sound like Stuart Smalley? I sure hope not! Part of my journey this last year in learning who I am and learning who God created me to be is learning to recognize the lies of the devil and to rebuke them. Not letting them land and settle in the garden of my heart. But to replace them with the Truth! But today also showed me that I can't do it on my own. I need Him to speak His truth to me. To remind me that I am a precious child of the Most High God!
