Lesson 2 of I Am Study

What is "your" initial response when anyone suggests you are beautiful?

Often when someone tells me I am beautiful I have a hard time saying thank you. I look at them as if they grew a second head.(haha-) 

Do you find you engage in alot of negative "self talk"?

I do speak negatively- my husband tells me all the time that I need to stop. 

How much of your thought life does this form of thinking consume?

Depends on what it is.. and what the situation is will depend on how much negativity I am consumed by. 

What is the most radical transformation you've witnessed in an individual after they were born again?

My own transformation- I came from an abusive home, physically, sexually, and mentally. 
Demons plagued me. I experienced spiritual war fare in my life and it burdened me in my young years. When I became born again, and released myself to Christ; He released me from those demons. These demons use to plague my dreams, keep me fearful to live, and be happy, but thank you for the blood! I have been set free!!!

The imagery of being a City Girl has absolutely changed the way I perceive my worth before God. Does it yours?
Yes- to think that He will beautify the meek through my Salvation in Christ!!
Wow- how unworthy but what a booster to know that it is not my worth that I receive this beauty but through Christ. 

Amen?!!

  1. Angie,

    This second lesson was one that was difficult for me and that's when God began to show me some stuff we still need to work on. I love your testimony of your salvation. How wonderful! He redeemed me from a difficult background as well! Praise Him!

    Blessings!

  2. Angie,

    You are so beautiful to God that if you had been the only person on the earth that was outside of a relationship with Him, ,He still would have sent Jesus to die for you. John 3:16 says for God so loved the world. You are the world to Him. You are the apple of His eye. You know how it hurts and makes you angry to hear on of your kids speak negative about themselves? Imagine how it makes God feel to hear you speak badly of yourself.

    It's strange that this lesson that was so hard for you and Michelle, was not as difficult for me.

    Doesn't mean that self esteem is not an issue with me. Just means that I don't have a problem with being beautiful for God, does that make sense?

    Oh by the way. If you and Michelle are going to pull me, I promise not to kick and scream to loud.

    I am so enjoying this study, you and Michelle. I am so blessed to have you both.

    Thanks so much,
    Sallye
