I'm not the only one...

I have this thing that I do....I worry too much about the way I come across to people...about how I say things - even worrying about what people think of me. I have lost many nights sleep worrying. I pray and pray trying to get peace when this happens. It does eventually come, but I am left weary and somewhat defeated. Satan loves that, doesnt' he? That is exactly what he wants me to feel. This type of worry is also quite selfish...what about ME? What did I do to them? Why don't they like ME? I continue to pray that the Lord strengthens me and gives me wisdom, healing my selfish attitude.

There are so many wonderful resources to encourage us as we seek wisdom. First, and most important, the Bible. There are also great books and articles written by godly men and women to encourage brothers and sisters in Christ. I came across this article this morning and I HAD to link it to my blog. Surely I'm not the only one that struggles with morbid introspection from time to time. Here is the link to the article by Nancy Wilson.

  1. No, you're not the only one who feels this way. I think my need to be a "people pleaser" is a weakness of mine. I try to remember that you can't please everyone all the time, but it's a hard lesson to learn!
