Humility: we find our lives when we lose them to something much larger.
Pride: we will never feel better about ourselves by becoming more consumed with ourselves.
Insecurity: relentless pursuit of perfection.
Insecurity refers to a profound sense of self-doubt-a deep feeling of uncertainity about our basic worth and our place in the world. Insecurity is associated with chronic self-consciousness, along with a chronic lack of confidence in ourselves and anxiety about our relationships. The insecure person also harbors unrealistic expectations about love and relationships. The insecure person creates a situation in which being disappointed and hurt in relationships is almost inevitable. Ironically, although insecure people are easily and frequently hurt, they are usually unaware of how they are accomplices in creating their own misery.

(Beth Moore: So Long Insecurity)

"To find yourself, your true secure self, you must loose yourself in something larger. God shows us that giving, rather than getting, is the means to receiving."
My prayer:
Why are we so proud and foolish? We don't listen until we're faced with disaster, and then we come crying to you, wanting you to fix us. Help me to to accept these changes and not be so jealous and needy. Help me to know in my heart you are sufficient. Help me REST in you."

As I was reading this book by Beth Moore, I was realizing how she was writing about ME! It helps to see right in front of you, how you tend to be. My prayer is that God reveals to me and all the other women who struggle with such insecurities, that HE IS SUFFICIENT and HE MADE US PERFECTLY!
