The 7-day Doubt Diet Day 7: Fear of Failure

.
If you haven’t signed up, don’t put it off – YOU are worth it. You’ll need your own copy to read (its free HERE).  If you haven’t started yet, it’s okay.  Each post remains available for your reference anytime, anywhere at your convenience. It couldn’t get any easier than that.
 

Day 7: Getting Up Again
Taken in part from Chapter 7 & 12
Food for thought: “Though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again.” (Proverbs 24:16 NIV)

Renee surveyed over twelve hundred women for her book, A Confident Heart, and discovered two of the biggest triggers that paralyze us with self-doubt.

  1. Fear of Past Failures
  2. Fear of Failing Again 

Have you failed?  I know I have.  Throughout this week as we’ve gone through each day of the 7-day Doubt Diet God has opened my eyes to many different areas of my mind that he wants to renew.  Just by referring back to the titles of day 1-6 and there is a common thread.  Don’t Throw Away Your Confidence, Beat Up or Built Up, Trigger Points, Sometimes Worry Makes Me Wonder, But I don’t have Anything Special to Offer, Measuring Up, and Getting up Again – are all issues that reside between my ears.

These aren’t the 7 areas that God wants me to change about myself so that I can measure up to his standard.  Instead, these are areas of my life that God wants me to recognize and set me from.  It goes back to that “waiting for him to zap me,” from day one – I HAVE TO DO THIS.  Yes, he will walk with me every step of the way, but he won’t make me. 

In every area that we’ve talked about not only are their false beliefs about ourselves but also lies about who God thinks we are.  He wants us to have the freedom he died to give us.  He already knows we are going to fall – it’s clearly stated in today’s chapter, the righteous fall.  If we didn’t we wouldn’t need God.  When we fall, it opens our heart to hear Gods voice.  Every time we fail on our own it creates the perfect opportunity for God to step into our mess and speak to our hearts. 

Failure Isn’t Final!
Are their failures in our past that are holding us hostage?  Not hostage to our failure, hostage to our thoughts about our failure.   If we continue to condem ourselves then we remain stuck, when in reality God is saying get up.  Don’t allow the lies of the enemy to convince you that you can’t get up again. 

Not only can we get up again, we can move forward further than we were before.  Yes, failures bring shame, fear, insecurity,  anxiety, etc.  When we choose to get up and get out from where we’ve been then God can move us to a new place we never thought we were capable of going.  Every failure in a new opportunity for growth, wisdom, humility, and dependence on God.

I can’t believe that today’s the last day of our 7 day Doubt Diet.  I hope that you have enjoyed it as much as i have.  I pray that we all grab hold of this message no matter what comes our way as we take God’s hand and trust His heart.

Doubt Diet Tip: I can’t guarantee you won’t fail, but I can help you set yourself up to succeed! Healthy eating requires good planning, especially packing healthy snacks for in between meals. In the same way, we can plan for healthy spiritual snacks from God’s Word. That way we have easy access to truth that can keep us on track and help us lose the weight of our self-doubts.
In chapter 12 of A Confident HeartI’ve included a chart of thirty-one promises to replace our defeating doubts with God’s empowering perspective. For the doubt diet, I’ve created a FREE DOWNLOAD of some of them and you can find them on my website. See the link below, please.

    Day 6: Measuring Up
    Taken in part from Chapter 6
    Food for thought: “When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.” (2 Cor. 10:12 NIV)
     
    When I started reading today’s devotion, I felt burdened.  I’ve read every single comment that ya’ll have sent in, and so many of us (I’m not saying you because I’m right here with you) believe that we aren’t good enough.  That we’ll never do enough, be a good enough wife or mother, or that we’ll ever do anything right.  It is one thing knowing that I feel that way, after a while I guess I had gotten used to that accusing voice in the back of my head.  However, when I read what your sweet hearts struggle with I got fighting mad with Satan. 
     
     
    This has been my prayer the past four years, because of my own struggles.  God let me see me the way you see me. Help me to believe I am who you say I am, not who Satan wants to convince me I am.  If we ever grab hold of our God given destiny, and trust God’s heart.  Satan knows what kind of impact we will have on the kindgom of God.  That is why he is relentless and determined to stop us.
     
    Fight back, girls fight.  Don’t just accept how you feel as truth.  Above all things our heart is deceptive.  I wish I could look each of you in the eye right now and tell you how valuable you are, that God doesn’t make mistakes and he created you.  Who?  Yes you, even with all the weird stuff you do or strange habits, or crazy hair that you don’t like.  Whatever none of those things define you.  It doesn’t matter if you are short or tall, big or small, red, purple green or white God did not make a mistake.  When he created you, yes listen closely when he created you – he was proud of his handiwork and that has not changed.  No matter what we do, it doesn’t change who we belong to. 
     
    I wish I could hug each one of you who doesn’t feel like you measure up.  I would tell you that……..
  • If you are breathing you have something to offer.  God is not finished with you yet, you are so special to him. 
  • I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you.  Jeremiah 29:11
  • You are enough just the way you are.
  • God isn’t waiting for you to be perfect. 
  • We will disappoint people who love us, because we won’t always meet their expectations.  That is okay, God didn’t create us to keep other people happy.
  • If you lost a job, or are waiting for a house to sell - nothing is too big for God.  The state our economy is in did not take him by surprise.  He is able. (Ephesians 3:20)
  • This one is for me too – Stop!  Quit allowing the enemy of our soul access to our mind and heart.  Kick his tail out.  If we hear a negative thought, doubt, shame, insecurity, etc in your head it’s not God.  Therefore, let’s commit to each other that instead of believing his truth lets expose it as a lie.
  •   

    Just like on day 2 – It won’t happen just because it’s possible.  

     I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I need God the most I resist getting into the word.  I know it will make me feel better, I know it will give me peace.  Can you relate?  After hearing how the 7-day Doubt Diet has resonated in so many hearts I am certain that God wants to use this time, this season to begin plowing up our minds.  Out with the old, in with the new.  We have but one choice to make, will we cooperate?

    I pray for each of you that you won’t stop fighting, you won’t stop running after God until you recieve what is yours - A Confident Heart.

    Excert From Day 6 – A Message from Renee

    Yet Satan wants us to focus on our flaws and feelings of inadequacy, then exhaust our energy figuring out how to hide them. But we don’t have to go along with his schemes. Instead we can recognize his lies, refute his temptations with truth, and focus on God’s acceptance, security, and significance. Then we can thank God for His provision and His promises that remind us of who we are in Him.

    I am accepted . . .
    Ephesians 1:3–8 I have been chosen by God and adopted as His child.
    Colossians 1:13–14 I have been redeemed and forgiven of all my sins.
    Colossians 2:9–10 I am complete in Christ.

     
    I am secure . . .
    Romans 8:28 I am assured that God works for my good in all circumstances.
    Romans 8:31–39 I am free from condemnation. I cannot be separated from God’s love.
    Philippians 1:6 I am confident God will complete the good work He started in me.


    I am significant . . .
    Ephesians 2:10 I am God’s workmanship.
    Ephesians 3:12 I may approach God with freedom and confidence.
    Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

     
    Doubt Diet Tip: When you’re tempted to use the measuring stick of comparison—be sure to measure UP by focusing upward on Christ, remembering who you are in HIM! “The more you reaffirm who you are in Christ, the more your behavior (and beliefs) will begin to reflect your true identity!” *

DaySpring: Life to the Full Review & $50 Credit Giveaway

 

Giveaway Reminder:  I am reposting this giveaway from this weekend for those of you who may have missed it.   Ends tonight at midnight!

 

~ DaySpring  Life to the Full ~

Colorful Kitchen & Tableware Collection

 

I was so excited to receive this bright fun pitcher from Day Spring in the mail. The colors are amazing so bright and cheerful – it reminds me of Spring

 

 

 I love the scripture that wraps around it, “I have come so they might have life and have it to the full.”  John 10:10. 

 

 

The scripture reminds me of the fullness of creation that comes to life in the Spring.   It’s an unexpected reminder of God’s promises in the midst of ordinary tasks.  I appreciate the suprise encouragement

 

 

My (Kasey) mom was in town last weekend.  She cooked an amazing down home southern supper and this country girl and her family dug in!  It was so yummy.  Mom loved the pitcher and both of my kids noticed it and commented how much they liked it.  I think it complements my fine china (okay) paper plates nicely.

   

 

In fact, DaySpring has an entire collection to match full of vibrant colors that coordinate so gracefully together.     For those dishes, I’d put my paper plates away.  Did I mention they are dishwasher safe?

GIVEAWAY #2: What was your favorite “Give” of 2010?

I’ve been having so much fun reading your favorite deals of 2010 ( I want to hear MORE guys, seriously!) – and I was thinking now we could share what our favorite “Give” was of 2010!

It feels great when you get such a good deal that you can afford share with others – that’s one of my favorite parts of couponing!  I think my favorite “Give” this year was having enough ALL detergent & Gain Dishsoap on hand, that a friend of mine (a single mother of 3) simply came “shopping” at my house every time she needed more.  She doesn’t read this blog (EVER) so I don’t feel weird saying this, but I often shop with her and her family’s needs/likes in mind :)

Now your turn – what did you most enjoy being able to share this year?

To Enter the 2nd New Years Eve Giveaway:

Share your FAVORITE GIVE of 2010!!  Were you able to scrape together a great haul for your church’s food pantry?  Did a few free toy deals come in handy for Toys for Tots this year?   What made you the HAPPIEST to give?

What is Ebates – and why should you join?

Ebates is a site that offers cash rebates from the things you already buy online.  The only thing you have to do is sign up for a free account and use an Ebates link to get to the online stores that you want to shop in.

When you buy items from the online stores that you already use, like Kohls or WalMart.com, you accumulate cash in your Ebates account. Every quarter (four times a year), you are paid the full balance of your Ebates account as long as it totals at least $5. It’s free, easy, and it pays you to do the online shopping that you already do.  It’s that simple!
