I'm not pretty enough. I'm not talkative enough. I'm not talented enough. I'm just not enough ... for them to like me, for him to ask me out, to do that job, to take that risk, to try something new.
Those are all lies that I've struggled with. The "not enough" complex is what I like to call it. Lies that have kept me from living the life that God has intended for me to live.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. ~1 Peter 5:8 (NIV)
Oh, how the devil does prowl around and all he has to do is give us one little seed of doubt and we start questioning. He did it with Eve in the garden and he still does it with us today. It's scary how easy it is to fall into that trap of lies, to believe them and to live our lives thinking that they're the truth. They're not.
That's why when I heard about Ashley's Overcome the Lie campaign, I knew I wanted to join in and be a part of it. Overcome the Lie is a social media campaign being hosted on The Story Project from January 28th to February 3rd. It is aimed to helping women break free from the lies and believe the truth that they are beautiful, loved and free.
I am excited to be a part of this campaign, to read the inspiring and honest posts and to share about the lies that God has helped me overcome and continues to help me with everyday.
