Welcome to the Rhapsody #Encore. On Fridays we will be reposting some of our readers most favorite posts. Todays repost is Eyes Closed from March 2014.
Facebook has become a glaring disposal of our insecurities. Recently, while scrolling through my feed, I couldn’t help but be made aware of how many people have the veil of deceit fully pulled over their eyes. I’m gonna share a weakness of mine that God has been refining (by the hottest ‘fire’ I’ve ever known).
I used to constantly seek the approval of everyone around me to validate who I was. I would go out of my way to be someone who others would dote on in order to feel good about myself. It manifested itself in my self-deprecating attitude (so others would brag on me) and my willingness to dress a little provocative to catch the eyes and approval of men and women alike.
Ultimately, my worth came from others compliments and attention. Now, I know that I was operating under Satan’s deceit. We are called to live a life of sacrifice to ultimately glorify The One who created us. Not a life doubting His workmanship. It’s time to wake up and take our inheritance as the children of God. We need to start living in His promises! The world promises Hell as a reward to be attained by a lifetime of fear and doubt. Yet, our Savior offers an eternity of everlasting peace and joy with Him in Paradise.
Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
