As a mom, your responsibilities are endless, and it’s easy to get caught up in the daily tasks and not deal with your insecurity.
Do you get caught in a seemingly hopeless situation that lands you in a bottomless pit?
You are loved unconditionally by God – don’t forget that He wants to wrap His comforting arms around you. But instead, it’s easier to focus on your insecurity and be held back.
Do you have an insecurity that screams at you that, “You’re not good enough!” or “You don’t measure up!”
As difficult as it may be, it’s time you stop listening to those voices and start embracing God’s love for you.
It’s time you start seeing yourself through God’s eyes and realize that you are fearfully and wonderfully made in His image.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well. Psalm 139:14
Today, I’m showing you how to let go of your insecurity and embrace God’s unconditional love.
Praising God is a wonderful way to place your security in Jesus
rather than continuing in your insecurity.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. Psalm 45:6
1. See Yourself as God Sees You
It’s easy to let whatever insecurity holds you captive, define who you are.
Do you downplay your abilities, compare yourself to others, and believe the lie that you aren’t good enough?
But the truth is, that God created you with unique talents, skills, and a purpose that only you can fulfill.
If you want to embrace His love for you fully, it’s time you start seeing yourselves as He sees you – as fearfully and wonderfully made.
I share that looking at how God sees you and how that will help you work through who you are in Christ.

2. Replace Negative Self-Talk
Did you know that you have more than 6,000 thoughts each day? I saw that some people have 70,000 thoughts! No wonder we need to reign in and control our thinking!
But there are many suggestions about affirmations that are supposed to encourage you to have positive thinking. I’d much prefer to meditate on God’s Word to replace my thoughts.
God already figured out how we ought to think and it’s all laid out in the Bible.
That’s the best way to replace negative self-talk by replacing it with what God is talking about in His Word. Here are some verses to get you started.
Memorize verses like:
When those insecurities start creeping in, speak these verses over yourself daily. It’s essential to feed our minds with the truth of who God says we are rather than the lies that Satan would rather we believe.
3. Spend Time with Others Who Lift You Up
Do you have people in your corner of the world, who believe in you and support you?
Seek out friendships where you can lift each other with encouraging words and actions. It’s important to surround yourself with people who want the best for you spiritually and uplift you along the way.
4. Practice Receiving Compliments
I am so bad at receiving compliments. It’s way easier to reply that I got ‘it’ at the thrift store to downplay the encouraging compliment.
I struggle with receiving compliments. Do you?
Instead of deflecting them, practice receiving them graciously. Thank the person, and believe what they said is true about you rather than arguing or making excuses.
It’s time to change the narrative and gracefully accept the praise.
Consider Your Insecurities as Opportunities to Grow Closer to God
5. No One is Perfect, and We All Have Insecurities
The good news is that we can use these struggles as opportunities to grow closer to God.
When you’re feeling insecure, bring those struggles to Jesus and pour your heart out to Him in prayer.
As you abide in His love and truth, your thinking will start to be transformed, and you will start to see yourself as He sees you.
6. Victory Over Your Insecurity
As a mom, it’s easy to get lost in our insecurity.
However, it’s time to start embracing God’s love for you and start seeing yourself through His eyes.
It’s time you replace negative self-talk with Bible verses and surround yourself with people who encourage you.
It’s time you stop deflecting compliments and start believing in your worth through Jesus Christ.
And finally, it’s time you consider your insecurity as an opportunity to grow closer to God.
Remember, you are deeply loved, and there is nothing you can do to change that.
Embrace His unconditional love today, and watch as your insecurity starts to fade away.
