It all starts at home..meaning that it all starts and ends with "do I love myself?"
God loves us even though he sees our daily faults and he feels for us when we are struggling with ourselves, with our low self-esteem, with our pride, with our depression, with our addictions.. whatever it may be that has you struggling in your life..God sees you and he looks down on you with caring eyes!
Why do you fight with yourself?..you may ask, because Satan knows that if he can get you down to the lowest point in your life..he can get into your head by you thinking about suicide or causing you to think about other things that makes you take your mind off getting things right in your life, anything that causes you to keep away from getting on the straight and narrow path will cause pain in your life and it's going to be much more difficult to go back to the place where you can discover who you need to be in your life!
It's hard when you're unhappy or depressed, it's challenging when you are struggling to break free from your addictions..especially when you're in it alone but God can get you back on track! God is the way out of your struggles! God can help you to break your bad habits! God can bring joy back into your life again! Don't give up..God hasn't given up on you, so why should you give up on yourself? Believe in yourself and believe in your God that he has a special plan for your life and believe that he's going to get you through it all!
Love yourself because God loves you though you will fail him! God accepts your baggage and junk so he can make you clean! God can set you free from the shadows that depression has placed on you! Don't lose hope, don't give up the faith that it's going to work out for you! God sees every bump in the road and he sees around every curve..so you can trust in him that it's all going to work out!
