All through the Bible you can find references about love, integrity, obedience, hope, joy, esteem, and courage.
And that my friend is just a very short list. The Bible is one of the most inspirational and motivational books I have ever read. Have I read the entire Bible? No, but I have drawn an enormous amount of strength and courage from it in the last couple of years though.
Which has brought me to a very personal and deep realization. That God is love and if I want to love myself more then I have to love my creator more.
Which means I have to get to know Him better and create, build and maintain a deep loving relationship with him, not just with myself.
Isn't that the essence of this self esteem building website anyways? I've had that idea since the beginning but I have to admit that I missed a huge first step in the process.
That step was getting to know God and what He was trying to tell me about building self love. And no I'm not going to give Him a hundred different names is this post like I've seen in other post. You can if you'd like but that's not the intent of this post.
This post is to point out the very fact that in order to build a deep loving relationship with yourself and others you must start from the beginning, which is with your creator.
Here are some self esteem bible verses that relate totally and completely to building self esteem -
"You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you." Song of Solomon 4:7 ESV
"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 ESV
"Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows." Luke 12:7 ESV
Don't miss understand this post, I'm not preaching, I'm just teaching. These verses speak to the core of who you are and what kind of love has created you. You have to power to use that same love to create more joy in your life.
You are love. And you can choose to believe it or not, the choice is yours.
