I had lived for years believing the central lie that I was unlovable because my experience had reinforced the lie that I wasn’t acceptable the way I was. Additionally, that lie had sprouted others: I was unlovable because I was fat. I was unlovable because I wasn’t pretty enough. I was unlovable because I just wasn’t good enough.
These lies, what I refer to as “weeds” in our lives, are false thoughts that become beliefs about ourselves the enemy uses to pull us away from God’s grace into shame, guilt, fear, envy, self-loathing and other destructive behaviors. No one is exempt from the weeds. They are planted by the chief enemy himself and their sole purpose is to steal God’s life-giving Truth in order to take over our garden. Any little thought, any small comment has the potential to get twisted and turned and become a source of so many other lies.
