have an easier time

working on their weak areas!

Below is an excerpt

 from our Bible Devotion

Self  - Acceptance



Millions of people struggle with

a lack of Self-Acceptance.


Poor self-image

is an epidemic

in our nation and in the world.


Self- condemnation is stealing the happiness of multitudes of people.

Many people believe

that it is honorable and admirable

to cultivate a low self-concept.

~

They believe that having a good self-image

is a synonym for being self-absorbed or arrogant.


I submit to you that

being arrogant

lands you into one ditch

and

having a low self-concept

lands you into another ditch.

Neither ditch is healthy.


It is important to realize

that

being humble

is not

the same as a poor self-image.


We all have a desire for self-acceptance.


Self-acceptance

is a gift we give ourselves.

Prayer for Healthy
Self-Acceptance


Loving Father,

Your Word tells me that you love me.

Your Word tells me that you go before me and you follow me.

Your Word tells me that you place your hand of blessing on my head.

Your Word tells me that you accept me.


But I haven't accepted myself.

I rarely allow myself to receive compliments and encouragement.

I rarely see the best in me.

I often focus on my weaknesses.

I repeatedly replay my failures in my mind.

Father, teach me to give grace

To

Myself.

Amen
