Deuteronomy 32:10 - In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye.
Do you know that we teach people how to treat us? They follow our lead in the way others see us. Are you happy with yourself, or do you only see yourself as the weaker person? Do you give yourself a break when you fail, or do you curse yourself under your breath? Do you think that you have very little to contribute to the world? Do you think you’re a waste of time to others? What we have to remember is that if we don’t respect ourselves how can we expect anyone else to? How would you like to be seen? Start there. Go gently. Don’t expect change overnight. Take one step and then the next. When you put your foot in the right direction day after day, you will eventually figure out, with God’s help, how he sees you and wants you to live.
