I used to have messed up thinking. Yes, folks, it’s true.
I used to think it mattered what other people thought about the way I looked or what I did or who I talked to. It doesn’t.
I used to think I had to reach some high level of corporate performance in order to be successful. I didn’t.
I used to think I’d have to be the person I thought others wanted me to be before they would accept me. Not true.
I used to think I was required to meet everyone’s expectations, even if I didn’t know what they were. How dumb.
I used to think I had failed miserably as a human being because I couldn’t do all of the above. A lie.
The thing is, there are countless messed up thinkers out there who are deceived, because this is the way the world measures success, acceptance, love. And the results are failed relationships. Depression. Self-esteem issues. Suicides. Loneliness. Fear. I could go on.
The bottom line is that who and what you are matters to God. You are precious to Him and He loves you – His own creation. He is the only one who will accept and love you unconditionally, regardless of what you’ve done or where you’ve been. He can straighten out your messed up thinking. He can put you on the straight path to real success.
Jesus said in John 10:10: “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” (NKJV)
Stop listening to the enemy’s lies. Allow Jesus to give you life – and more abundantly!
