Dear Self-Doubt, I Hate You

Dear Self-Doubt, I Hate You

Dear Self-Doubt,

I hate you.

I could probably end my letter to you right now, but where’s the fun in that?

Seriously, you’re the worst.

I hate it when you come creeping into my heart after I see one of my friends on Facebook living their perfect little life. I know how dumb it is. Social media is where people showcase the best parts of their life and I don’t get to see the mess that comes along with it, but that doesn’t stop you. You still find a way to chip away at my confidence.

I hate that you sneak into my relationships. My marriage, my friendship, even the relationships I have with my coworkers. You make me feel so small and insignificant. You make me question my words, my intentions and worth. Because of you, I play it safe. I discredit my ideas and my feelings.

Here’s the thing, self-doubt. I know that you’re just feeding me lies from the enemy. So, I’m going to fight your lies with Truth.

I serve a living God who tells me:

I was not given a spirit of fear. I was given a spirit of power, love and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7)

I am a daughter of the King and I am valuable. (Galations 3:26)

I was created in the image of God. (Genesis 1:27)

I am fully known and I am fully accepted. (John 10:27)

I am constantly being pursued by God. (Psalm 139)

I have the freedom to be bold and confident. (Ephesians 3:12)

He delights in me and I am loved. (Zephaniah 3:17)

 

I am choosing today and every day to live my life according to this Truth and not your lies.

Sincerely,

Daughter of the King

 

 

Abba Father,

When self-doubt begins to creep in, guard my heart and my mind with your Truth. Keep my eyes focused on you and your love for me. I know that when I give into the lies of the enemy I am not living the life you have called me to. I want to be my true self. I know you have given me a spirit of power and of love and self-control. Help me to live each day in freedom, knowing that I am a daughter of the King.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

  1. What great reminders! It’s always easy to think I am the only one going through those thoughts, but we know the enemy attacks us all. Thanks for the great post.
