lies i am constantly believing

sometimes i really throw myself off when i stop for a second and realize that i have been listening to lies. 
real. live. lies!
because sometimes i trick myself into thinking that they are truths when they are in fact not

we certainly know that the Bible tells us that satan is a big fat liar. (my own version)
but it says in John 8:44 referring to satan: 

He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

i am speaking mostly to women here. (although he is such a loser that he has no problem lying to anyone and everyone!)

what kind of lies are you believing today?
do you even realize that it is a problem?

here are just some of the lies we can believe every day without ever realizing we are believing, therefore living these lies!

* i am a failure as a wife
* i am a horrible housekeeper
* i am a terrible mom
* i am a selfish person
* i am ugly
* i am not as good as _________ (you fill in the blank)

while i think it is nice when you can find blogs or articles that might:

-give tips on how to be a better mom
-give however many steps on your road to success with your business
-give practical ways to make your home look beautiful

and on an on.
when i read those things it just makes me more depressed.
when i read those things it just makes me feel like more of a failure that i did not even know how to come up with those things myself!

the bottom line is this.
no one has arrived. no one has it all together. no one lives a perfect life.

the most important thing to remember is that focusing on the lies that satan feeds us everyday will never ever make us better. it will only condemn us.

Jesus, however, did not come to condemn us. and there is no condemnation in Him. He DOES give us verse after verse filled with love and acceptance of us.

here are a few:
*I am His daughter. - John 1:12
*He loves me with a love that is everlasting - Jeremiah 31:3
*He forgives my sins - 1 John 1:9
*Possessions and even status will not last - Matthew 6:19
(this means that your being "cool" now will mean nothing for all of eternity!)
*God does not love one person more than any other - Acts 10:34
*I am free. free from sin. free from death. free from bondage! - Galatians 5:1

so tonight, as you are getting ready for bed.
don't...do not listen to lies that are being fed to you about your lack of acceptance, your unloveliness, your looks, your weight, your downfalls and your failures.

listen. stop comparing yourself to anyone else. 
there is no one like you. God made you for a reason with special gifts and talents that are completely unique to you
because he has plans to use those gifts through you in a way no one else can!

stop listening to the lies.
just stop it already!
break the habit!
start living with the realization that the God who created this entire universe and controls the world...wants you. yes you. 
he wants to show you how much he loves you.
imagine that?

ain't no board on pinterest, no amount of likes or comments, no amount of money or size of your friends list is going to come anywhere near to the satisfaction that can bring!

let's live a lie-free day tomorrow. 
you in?


  1. Beautifully stated.

    John 10:10 comes to mind also!
