I always thought that being shy and timid was a humble thing.  Wrong!  It’s really just being prideful. Low self-esteem causes self to dominate thoughts.  It’s the result of focusing on yourself as compared to others and then coming to the conclusion that you just don’t measure up, and everyone around you knows it.  It’s all about you.

There was a day when just the thought of praying out loud or talking to strangers, would send fear through my entire body.  My low self-esteem/self-centeredness was causing all kinds of challenges!  It’s when I began to find out who I really am IN Christ, that things started to change.

“He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” (Psalms 107:20)
Praise God, His Word changes everything! His Word delivered me from all destruction!  His Word healed me!  His Word showed me how to think!   I found out who I really am, righteous with God’s righteousness! (2 Cor 5:21)  Made in His image! (Gen 1:26)  I learned to confess who I am because death and life are in the power of the tongue! (Prov 18:21)

His Word can change you also!

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  (2 Cor 5:17)
