Organizing the Inside – Day 189 Believe in Your Worth

Liz Mason has done a wonderful job in helping me take a closer look at the hidden dream stoppers in my life and I want to share this with everyone willing to look again and find the very thing(s) that is preventing them from being all God said they could be.

Organizing the Inside 365 Days

Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
3 John 1:2

Watch out for hidden dream stoppers.
Those small and subtle things that are deep inside that sometimes you don’t even recognize are there. One thing that seems to plague many Christian women and stop them from achieving their dreams is that deep inside they don’t feel worthy of having God’s best for their lives. Whether your dream is to have financial independence, physical health, a thriving business or ministry, stronger personal relationships with your family members, somehow you don’t think you deserve to have everything you’ve been hoping for. The enemy of God would have us to believe all kinds of foolish lies to keep us from receiving the abundant life that Jesus came to give.

HELD CAPTIVE IN THE DARK, DREARY PLACE—NOW FREE

Today I feel like I have a life and I matter. Most days I just exist, nothing about me counts. Some days I feel I’m an asset but there are times I’m just bumbling through. At the end of the day I’m alone.

I’m in a dark and dreary place where the shroud of darkness covers everything round about. Where is the penetrating light that dispels the deep black darkness? Where are the Angels that grab the edges of the dark covering and snap it to attention and command it to leave? Why is my mouth shut up and the words locked away that will burst me forth from the captivity of this dark and dreary place—the place where I’m taunted by the recorder of my life. All you know how to do is make a mess of things. You can’t do anything right. You’re fat and ugly. You’ll never amount to anything. On and on and on then the big one that stabs me in the heart and takes my breath away—I wish you were never born—I wish you were dead. I wish I was dead! How can I have a present and a future with those nagging, mocking voices I hear? Where can I go; what can I do to be rid of them?

A still small voice is whispering loudly at me. It’s softly but boldly beckoning “come hither and see”. I have a way to set you free. As I fight to make my way back from the deep, dark hole there is light at the end that is a blinding flash of light. The darkness is running with no place to hide. The light has defeated it; a new day’s arrived. The small voice breaks through with declarations and decrees. The negative word curses no longer torment me.

I now hear a symphony of cheers. You’re fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13). I know the plan I have for you (Jeremiah 29:11). There’s Angel assistants sent to dispel the darkness so I can see the new day. The glory of the Lord has come to say I love you with an everlasting love.

Have you ever felt you were held captive and alone in a dark dreary place?
