All I Need Is Him!


"Don't pay attention to everything people say..."
Ecclesiastes 7:21

"Reverence for the Lord gives confidence and security to a person."
Proverbs 14:26

"If God like me, I like me, and you don't like me,
The problem is with you!"
David Yasko

I always worry about what others think and my confidence varies.  To be honest, too often I worry about if I am good enough for my friends, if my past will turn people off, or if my mental disorders will stop some relationships from happening.  I worry what others say.  I don't just worry, I fear what they say.

Yet God says don't pay attention to what people say.

Easily said right!  Hard to do though.  As it is, we people that get wrapped up in what others say and how we are treated.

Just the other day, I heard some talking about the big gal and automatically thought that it was me that they were talking about.  I have no clue who they were talking about, but the whole time I thought it was me, my mind went to dark places.  I soon did not like me and how I look.  It wasn't till I prayed to have God remove the negative talk, that I started to find my confidence back.

Notice what I said there?  I prayed to God and I got confidence!  Imagine that, the key to getting out of what others say is to turn it over to God and in return you get peace of mind and confidence.  Sometimes it doesn't happen right away, and that is when I don't believe in myself.

So how can we build our view of ourselves?  Pray for it, talk positive, and hang out with those that are positive...or more so, those that are part of God's family and act in love.

It ain't my concern what others think of me!  Like the quote above, if God likes me which I know he does cause he sent Christ to die for me, if I like me which I do because I am made by God, then it don't matter if you do and if you don't then that is your problem!
