Knowing God Gives You Confidence

Hosea 2:20  “I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the Lord.”  (KJV)

 

Growing up with narcissistic parents takes a toll on your self-esteem.  Often, it completely obliterates it.  This causes so much needless suffering!  Aside from feeling miserable, it makes you make mistakes, by giving you the belief that you can’t do anything right.  This in turn solidifies that belief that you can’t do anything right, & makes you feel even worse.  It’s an ugly, vicious cycle.

 

One way to help yourself to regain the self esteem that was stolen from you is to talk to God.

 

As a child of God, there is PLENTY in the Bible that states what God thinks of you.  And, Dear Reader, He thinks a great deal of wonderful things about you!  He loves you so much, & wants you to know that.  One way He shows it is by talking about you in the Bible.  I created a list of these Scriptures & added them to my website.  Feel free to check it out at this link:  http://cynthiabaileyrug.com/Positive-Affirmations.php

 

Also, ask God what He thinks of you, & to help you to be more aware of His love.  You will be surprised!  You may notice more people saying & doing nice things for you.  Blessings may come your way that you weren’t expecting.  Maybe both!  In any case, you will be blessed.

  1. This post, and your affirmations, are wonderful. I am bookmarking your affirmation page so I can refer to it again and again. Thank you! Merry Christmas!

    By the way, December is typically my most stressful time of year, because this is the time of year when my mother tried to gas herself and the five of us kids to death, many decades ago. But thanks to my recent neurofeedback treatments, this December has not been nearly as triggering. I believe that by reading through and saying your affirmations, my trauma triggers will have even less of a hold on me. God bless you, Sister!

  2. My favorite is…I am made in the image of God…
    When I get in my stinkin thinking and think poorly of myself, I think of what God is and I think I am a reflection of that. I was made in the image of God..and God does not make junk, nor is God junk.
