What are you holding on to??
Validation……….just a little sense that you are right!! I know I need that. This need can quickly turn into a want really fast. Screaming out from behind a miscommunication can come a roar of JUST HEAR ME …Will ya?? Suddenly finding yourself in a full on fight with your friend, husband, children…everyone. WHEN WILL THEY SEE WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT???
Acceptance…..a feeling that comes from deep within that you are ok with another. I know I need that to. There are times that acceptance turns into people pleasing manipulation for kind words about yourself. Ever been there?? That little girl with crying out: LOVE ME…will someone please just Love me for ME!!!
These two things are balloons tied to SELF -WORTH. Self worth is the wrapper on the ballon weight, and in that wrapper is THE ROCK. Jesus is to be our self worth. He is the one who validates – He died for you and Accepts you – you are His.
When we wrap our self worth on anything else we are sorely disappointed. Sometimes we do not even realizing it. The evidence….NO PEACE and war has broke out everywhere. With people and within ourselves.
Inside our emotions are going crazy. We are shouting and crying for fullfillment. We are desperate for JOY.
Its time to let go….
all we need is in Him ….and when we ask ourselves questions to get to the bottom of what is going on within and in our relationships with others…we will find answers and often the answer is we have wrapped ourselves around something other than THE ROCK!!
