…and the truth will set you free!

Let’s recap what we’ve learned the last two weeks.

 

What is insecurity?  Insecurity is BONDAGE                                    

Bondage to caring what people think

Bondage to believing enemy lies

 

Insecurity is an INNER stronghold that mirrors an OUTWARD struggle.

Insecurity is a VICIOUS CYCLE.

 

What does insecurity do?  Insecurity will ALWAYS:

HOLD ME BACK and

Make me INWARDLY FOCUSED 

 

As I’ve studied insecurity I’ve come to realize there are three major keys we can use to unlock the chains that bind us.  I will soon reveal these keys, but the choice of freedom is up to you.  It is up to you everyday.  Freedom from insecurity is not a destination you arrive at.  It is an everyday choice. 

What things have you learned in this mini series that you didn’t know before?  Which thoughts have helped you the most?

  • Hot Mama! I’m so proud of you.

    For you single-guy Jesus lovin’readers, Anna is single; however I am very picky. If you are a 10+ kinda guy let me know and maybe we can all sit down for cofee.

    I’m just saying that’s my girl!

    Hello Anna, I found your blog through Paravane’s site.
    Anyway, I love the stuff you are talking about! I can relate for the most part, especially in the area of being inward focused. .. and the selfishness and pride that is all a part of it. Fortunately, God is freeing me and healing me in that area, and I’m so interested to read about what you’ve learned!

  • Kristie says:

    Anna even in your “uncomfortable” days you had the same beautiful smile! Really good series, you’re such a good teacher :)

  • Way to go!!! I agree, insecurity makes me only look at myself. waa, waa, waa! Being secure in Christ makes me look at others. Yea! Yea! Yea!

  • dang girl…

    (that’s all i’m saying)

  • Anna says:

    Scott–You are crazy! But let me know if you get any takers… LOL J/K… no really…
    Esther–I’m so thankful you’ve found this helpful… keep going!
    Kristie–Thank you! I hope you can keep learning…
    Natalie–that made me laugh… I’m glad you see it!

  • Nikkie says:

    Anna,
    I wish I had your fire, your love for God and your passion when I was 21. You continue to impress me. Love ya girl!

  • Hi! this is megan. im one of the XL’s at Church! i just wanna say I love this. and also i think you looked b-e-a-utiful then and now!!

  • Shanna Crawford says:

    You are BEAUTIFUL!

  • At least Esther has some better blogging influences now. “the choice of freedom”. I remember that. Hey mental image. I can just see Scott sitting there with a spiritual shotgun saying “so, let me explain the rules.” I remember that feeling from when my stepdaughter was dating. (grin)

  • Yeah, well, Jimmy….Scott’s not the only one with a shotgun. Anna’s guy not only has to have the approval of her dad (who has a big shotgun), she has a big brother, and 3 brother-in-laws, her two younger brothers, an uncle, not to mention her 3 sisters….oh and me! (grin) She’s quite a girl. Some man will be very fortunate to choose her!

  • OK, new mental image. Anna jumping up high enough so the guy can see over all those heads shouting something at him like “no pressure”. (grin)

  • Josh White says:

  • […] know all too well the feelings of defeat when it comes to losing weight, but I guarantee you that if I can do it, anyone can do it.  I hope and pray this inspires some of us to start a lifestyle of healthy eating.  There’s no […]
