The biggest lie I’ve ever told…
…is that I’m unlovable.
Though I knew it was untrue, my heart believed it, so I repeated it to myself over and over and over. Or maybe… my heart believed it because I repeated it to myself over and over, etc.
I’m so thankful I was wrong. I’m so thankful for the people God has placed in my life who love me, not in spite of myself, but as a whole human being — an imperfect, flawed, sometimes irritable, sometimes difficult, and frequently ridiculous human being.
Why is it so easy to lie to ourselves?
A friend challenged me once not to say anything to myself that I wouldn’t say to her. It was truly an eye-opener for me. Not only would I never tell another human being that she is unlovable, but I would never even think that! I just don’t know of any human being that is unlovable! So why would I think I am the exception?
What an ego I have, eh? 🙂
God, help me never to repeat such lies again.
