Divorce affects our self-esteem and shatters our confidence. If we’ve been abandoned and rejected for another person, we may feel as if we’re not enough – not pretty enough, not thin enough, not smart enough, et cetera.
Those are lies straight from hell !
Remember who you really are. You are a unique creation of God. No one else is exactly like you.
You have gifts and talents that fit you perfectly. Before you were born, God designed your life and he still has a good plan for you.
Divorce cannot steal who you really are.
To remind myself of who I am, I sometimes wear a tiara around the house. Just putting on my tiara helps me stand up straighter, feel more royal and reminds me I am a daughter of the King of kings.
It also helps to speak positive affirmations to myself. Try it! Look in the mirror and tell yourself:
- “I am beautiful.”
- “I am greatly loved by many people.”
- “My children think I am the best mother in the world.”
- “I am highly valued by God.”
- “I have a great path ahead of me.”
- “I am royalty and thus – I deserve respect.”
- “I will believe the truth and ignore the lies.”
- “I AM enough; in fact, I am MORE than enough.”
- “Even though I am Starting Over Single, I’ll be just fine.”
Remember what you’re going through now is only a season, and seasons always have an ending. You’ll make it through.
Just continue to remind yourself of who you really are. Royalty !
“But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted” (1 Peter 2:9-10 MSG).
