This past Saturday was the first day of our “Self-Doubt Diet.” It is said that, “What you feed will grow.” Studies show that anything you do for 21 days becomes a habit (good or bad). Over the next 21 days, we are going to feed Self-Worth and starve Self-Doubt.
The goal of this “Self-Doubt Diet” is to see ourselves as God sees us, believe it, and reject anything contrary, regardless of who/where it comes from, even from within.
For many, we have only heard the negative things spoken about us, we allowed it to continue, and somewhere along the way, we accepted it as true. But, those days shall be no more!
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2 NKJV
I believe the keys to success on any diet are:
Commitment ~ When we love someone we are committed to that individual. Let’s love ourselves enough to commit to nourishing our Self-Worth.
Balance ~ Maintaining proper balance requires mental and emotional stability. We can’t grow without it. It requires a level of maturity and transparency to see both sides of the spectrum. Even when we err, we can learn from it, and move on.
Discipline ~ Self-control is a MUST! We have to learn how to control our impulses, emotions, and desires. We can’t be moved by what we, or others “feel” about us. We have to rely on what God says about us.
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
Here are some of the Truths we are going to speak and decree over ourselves for the next 21 days. Repeat after me:
I am Beautiful ~ You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you. Song of Solomon 4:7 ESV
I am Strong and Courageous ~ Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 NKJV
I am Fearless ~ The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? Psalm 118:6 NKJV
I am Confident ~ In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, And His children will have a place of refuge. Proverbs 14:26 NKJV
I am Bold ~ And also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel. Ephesians 6:19 ESV
So, That Settles It. Will you join me on this 21 day journey on the “Self-Doubt Diet?” If you do it the right way, the results will be astounding. You have nothing to lose, except “Self-Doubt.”
