Here it is. The third and final point to uncovering the battle we all face.
The things we use to mask our insecurities are the very things that cause us to fall deeper and deeper into bondage. We often feed our own insecurities without even knowing it.
Say you struggle with insecurity because of your weight. But instead of breaking free you run to the very thing imprisoning you: food. So you eat, essentially because you’re depressed about your weight which was why you were insecure in the first place.
You’re extremely insecure so you’re always putting others down, which makes you feel even worse about yourself… so to keep up, you continually tear down others which only feeds into more insecurity.
You get the point. Insecurity is a vicious cycle. If we don’t learn the secret of overcoming this bondage we will continue the downward spiral until we’re so bound that we’re no longer who God intended us to be.
Freedom can be found. Ask me how I know.
(Next week I’ll reveal one of the most shocking photos you’ll ever see on annameadows.com. I’ll also share my own personal story of freedom!)
What cycle of insecurity are you currently in? How are you feeding your insecurity? What are some other examples of how insecurity is a vicious cycle?
