Today, I wanted to share with you some of the verses that comfort me when I’m feeling the extreme pressures of anxiety regarding who I am or how others perceive me!  I have never been dilapidated by it; however, it affects nearly every thought I have about myself.  I spend countless moments during the day and hours at night thinking through scenarios of how people react to me or replaying conversations that I could have used more thought-out words.  I have this perception of myself that is not acceptable to me; I struggle to find beauty, grace, and strength in myself the way that I have no issue finding in others.

You can get to know my struggles with my negative inner voice on a personal level here.

I hope the above verses will comfort you in times of anxiety the way that they have comforted me.  You are beautiful, full of grace, and abounding in strength!  Together I hope we can learn to love ourselves as Christ loves us!  I took a little excerpt from my post that I linked above, because it just says it all.

“The Holy Spirit reverberates inside of me like a deafening echo, but somehow my worldly view of myself still takes precedent over His sweet, sweet words.  I can feel Him changing frequencies inside of me, hoping to break through that menacing cloud, and I know one day He’ll succeed.  That’s a hope that I carry with me; one day he’s going to wipe me clean, and I will abruptly see myself the way He does.  Each year that passes I learn slowly and sluggishly to love myself with the same fervor that Christ has taught me to love others.”
