Renewing the Mind (Insights into Self Esteem – Chris Ledger and Wendy Bray)

In finding myself accepted, I am able to accept myself for the first time in my life. It feels good to be me. With Jesus I experience a new freedom, a joy in life. I feel valued, loved and held in high esteem by Jesus Christ who by doing this has given me life. This love is different. Jesus is more than the love of my life. He is love. He is life.

I am not to blame for everything. If it is my fault, I will confess my sin and Jesus will forgive me. (1 John 1:9; Romans 8:1) Freedom and forgiveness

Jesus wants me, He chose and accepted me. I am part of his family. (Isaiah 41:9; 1 Corinthians 12:13) Love and acceptance

Jesus sees all that I do and says ‘Well done.’ (Matthew 25:21) Acceptance and approval

I am precious to God because He chose me and delights in me. (Isaiah 43:4; Psalm 139:1; Ephesians 1:11-12) Worth

God accepts me as I am. I don’t have to prove myself. (John 1:12; 1 John 3:1; James 2:5) Worth from ‘being’ not ‘doing’

I will do my best and His grace will be sufficient for me. (Isaiah 41:10; 2 Corinthians 12:9) Confidence
