You Can't Talk To Me That Way

"You are so fat!"

"That outfit looks terrible on you!

"Your hair looks awful!  You can't do anything with it."

"You are such a loser."

"You are a total mess."

"Nobody notices anything you do.  Why even bother?"

"You can't do anything right!"


I  going to guess that if you had a "friend" who spoke to you that way, you wouldn't be friends for very long.  In fact, you probably wouldn't want that person around at all!

Now, how often do you say one or more of these things to yourself?  (Be honest!)  

Why is it OK to talk to yourself that way?  What makes us feel that it's alright to say hurtful things about ourselves?  Things we would never dream of saying to another person.

Being humble doesn't mean speaking in a demeaning way about yourself.  It means knowing Who and Where your value comes from.

Sweet sister, you are a daughter of the King.  You were created in His image. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)  You have value. (Luke 12:6-7)  You are precious, chosen, and loved.

Treat yourself as the beloved, worthy, precious woman you are!
