“So when God untangles me, does that mean I’ll never struggle with insecurity again?”
I get asked that question. A lot.
He wants to wrap His arms around those “I’m not good enough” places in your tangled heart and speak truth into the knots that are choking you.
Because when God speaks, things change.
In the first chapter of Genesis, God literally speaks the world into being. He took a whole bunch of nothingness and changed it into something amazing with words.
- “Then God said, ‘Let there be light.’ And light appeared.”
- “And God said, ‘Let the vapors separate to form the sky above and the oceans below.’ So God made the sky, dividing the vapor above from the water below.”
- “Then God said, ‘Let the water beneath the sky be gathered into oceans so that the dry land will emerge.’ And so it was.”
He opened His mouth… told the nothingness to form… and it did. God’s words hold the power to create change.
And guess what? Your words do, too.
Here’s why I know that…
In Genesis 1:26 God says this… “Let us make a man—someone like ourselves…”
Commentaries agree this passage literally means… “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness.” And so we are.
So friends, if God creates with His words… and since we are created in His image… then we create with our words, too.
That means when you speak tangling words against yourself, or when you adopt the tangling words others speak about you… you’re creating knots of insecurity in your life.
You become your own worst tangle-maker.
~ She’s right, I’m a horrible mom and I’m ruining my kids.
~ My husband deserves someone better than me.
~ I hate the way I look.
~ Why can’t I cook like her? My poor family.
~ A good friend would have remembered her birthday. I’m a loser.
I wrote The Enough Declaration with that kind of resolve in mind. It’s time to change how we speak to ourselves… and about ourselves.
And It’s time to stop entertaining the tangling labels others place on us: failure. disappointment. unworthy. inconvenient.
So here’s where we start.
I encourage you print out this declaration, frame it, hang it, set it on your bathroom counter, tape it to your mirror or door, or place it where it will get the most visibility. Click HERE to download it now.
Then read it. Believe it. Own it. Speak it.
And while insecurities may always come knocking at our door – because we’re human for Pete’s sake – we get to choose whether we invite them in or not.
Being untangled doesn’t mean you’ll never again struggle with those not good enough feelings. It just means you’ll be quicker to see the lies… faster to recognize the truth… and you will take your knots right to God so He can untangle them. Again.
And He will. He is.
Because sweet friend, you are worth God’s time.
And you’re good enough…
…because He is good enough.
