The Self-Esteem Affirmation.

Self-Esteem

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a [special] people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

— 1 Peter 2:9 [AMP]

These affirmations are for the christian who struggles with low self-esteem, fear, anxiety and insecurity. If you hear people laughing and automatically think they’re laughing at you, if you feel insecure about your appearance, or you are insecure because of your past, or because you feel you’re not _____ (e.g. good, smart, pretty) enough, if you have an identity crisis or find it hard to think positive and calm thoughts, always worrying about things you have no control over, if you suffer from panic attacks, if you are constantly afraid to mingle with others etc. then these affirmations are for you.

The christian identity affirmation is designed to help you reflect on and remember your identity in Christ, in order to bring you to a state of empowerment, mental and physical peace. These affirmations will restore, reassure and encourage you.

Always remember: Jesus is for you, God is on your side, life is not as bad as you think.
