When I ponder upon my own insecurities I feel they are justified. Hear me out. Insecurities go back all the way to the Garden of Eden. Eve convinces, Adam eats, Man falls, they cover their naked bodies. Bam! They were insecure or ashamed. Think about that! That same insecurity has remained constant within humans for thousands of years. Before they sinned they weren’t insecure with their naked bodies, but it is after they sinned they became insecure. Their bodies looked no different, but now they held within themselves the ability to shame one another, or criticize how they looked.
I find that I’m insecure, not because I don’t find security in Christ, trust me I do. But rather I’m insecure because I know how judgemental, hypocritical, and critical everyone else is. I know my approval is in Christ, but I still struggle with insecurity because I know my sin nature. My sin is the core to my insecurities. I have found that discovering security in Christ is a liberating process, yet a process that is not always as easy as it may sound. I wish I could tell all of you that I have no insecurities, but that would be a lie. I just pray I have the wisdom to acknowledge where my insecurities lie and have the courage to place them at His feet, because where I am weak He is strong!
