Anonymous asked: Lately I've been battling with self-doubt, frustration and hints of envy. I compare myself to other girls physically and intellectually. I don't feel smart; as a child I used to be told I was dumb because I couldn't do simple math problems. (Math was a huge challenge, still is!) Also, I'm in college and I'm in a program that I don't even know that I really belong in. Finances are becoming an issue, and I feel like I'm only here to please my family. My prayer life is also in a drought :/
You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you -Song of Songs 4:7
You were made exactly how God wanted you to be made. He didn’t mess up. He tells us in the Bible that…we are his masterpiece. You can’t compare yourself to someone else, it’s not fair. Every single person on this earth could sit there and compare ourselves to someone and never be happy with who we are or content with ourselves. But God doesn’t want that. Cherish your body. Love yourself. Intelligence isn’t of importance either. It’s about what’s in your heart. I have met people who are physically and mentally handicapped…that doesn’t mean they are amazing and exactly how God intended for them to be. They just show their love in a different way. So you can’t compare yourself to others. Because you were made unique, for a specific purpose, For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do -Ephesians 2:10
So please, just take these words that God is speaking to you, and live by them. Beauty is in your heart. If you want to be more beautiful, dig into the word, build your relationship with God, be more like Jesus. That’s what God wants us to do. He wants us to live our lives out for Him. Be His hands and feet, by loving. Unconditionally. If you feel like you’re only in college to please your family, then I don’t think you should be there. Don’t take my word on it, but I believe that we should follow God’s plan for us…not someone else’s plan for us. I might be completely wrong, but I can’t tell you what to do and what’s right or wrong. Listen to God, pray about it, speak to Him, ask Him where He wants you to go. Sweetie, everything will turn out okay. Don’t worry about it, pray.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus -Philippians 4:6-7
Listen to Him, and follow Him. If your prayer life isn’t doing great, then change it! Right now, get off your computer and spend ten minutes praying to God. Talking to Him, and just sitting in silence in His presence. Go through your day praying, thanking, praising God for everything He’s given you. Don’t let anything hold you back from speaking to God. That is Satan’s strongest yet weakest point. He doesn’t want us to have a relationship with God and he will do anything it takes to encourage us to not pray. Don’t let Satan do that to you. Listen to God. He wants to be apart of your life, and wants you to go to Him in your time of need. God bless!
Anonymous asked: Hey there, just wandering.. Do you and your boyfriend ever get jealous? Like of other people or even of eachother? And how do you handle it?
Hi :) He doesn’t get jealous, but I do at times. And it’s hard because I do trust him, more than any guy -besides God of course. But Satan knows my weaknesses and tries to get me to fall into the trap. If I get jealous, I usually try to keep it in so I don’t cause an argument between us. Praying is the best solution, getting my mind off of something I shouldn’t even worry about. Jealously is so hard on relationships, and if you trust the person you’re with you should do everything you can to avoid it. It’s still hard for me today, but I’ve improved so much :)
