My Biggest Insecurity Is...

My Biggest Insecurity Is...

We're told to embrace our insecurities, I'm just not sure how

Everyone has things their insecure about. A few of mine are my thighs (I’m Charlotte from Sex and the City), my sense of humor, and my intelligence. Overall of those insecurities, there’s one that is above the rest, and it is my ability of being a good person.

My mom is the most amazing person you will ever meet. She is like Mother Teresa to me. She is the person that does the right thing no matter what, even if she knows she is going to get screwed over. For years, my mom has demonstrated what it means to be a good person, and honestly watching her, I have absolutely no idea if I have what it takes.

A lot of people are scared of becoming their mom, but I’m scared that I won’t be like her. Everyday I think to myself, WWLD (what would Lee do?) when I’m faced with a tough situation, and most of the time it turns out okay. Other times, I just choose not to think WWLD, and that is what gets me in trouble.

Overall, I think that I am a pretty good person, but I don’t know if I am the best. It drives me crazy sometimes when I think at night of how I could be a better person that day. It’s almost as if I’m looking in the mirror and thinking how I could get my thighs smaller. Like I said, it’s not that I’m not a good person I do as much as I can for other people, whether they deserve it or not. I just know I can be better, and I’m insecure because I don’t know if I will ever get better.

A lot of people say insecurities are all in a person’s head and if they want to fix something about themselves they should do it. I get that. However, some things are easier said than done. For me, I am too emotional. Some may think, that I’m a raging female dog and am the worst person ever, but it has everything to do with the fact that I’m super sensitive. My sensitivity makes me act more on my emotions, rather than what’s the right thing to do.

Being a good person is being able to accept those emotions AND still being able to do what is right. I worry a lot, that I will not master that concept.

12 Bible Verses For Faith In Hard Times

Remind yourself that God is always with you.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

5 Bible Quotes Hate Preachers Must Have Skipped

A lot of people preach a lot of things about who is going to heaven and who is going to hell. They spit out a lot of Bible Verses to back there claims. I just want to show them some that they may have forgotten about.


A "pastor" came to Villanova last week with some signs that essentially said only perfect people get to Heaven and everybody else hates God. This, quite frankly, pissed me off. He said women are only good for the kitchen. He said eating disorders are nothing more than a choice. He said all gay people are rapists. He said such outlandish, and often contradictory things that I've concluded he doesn't even really believe that stuff but just wants to get people mad so they hit him and he can file a lawsuit, but that's just my guess. Regardless, after all the stuff he said about God how God thinks and judges, after he essentially claimed himself as perfect as God, I just thought I would highlight some parts of the Bible he must have missed.

1. "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Mt 7:2

I don't want to call the guy out or anything, but if he wants to preach the Word of God I feel like he should know ALL of it. Ya know?

2. "There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?"  James 4:12

3. "For God shows no favoritism" Romans 2:11

God loves everyone equally, I just want the guy to know that. God loves me, and him, and ALL people just the same.

4. "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." 1 John 3:18

I'm all for people saying what they believe, that's great. I just want to remind this guy that service might be a tad but more productive than yelling "WHORE" at girls with yoga pants. I might be wrong, I can't be sure what God really wants but we can agree to disagree I guess.

5. "Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law." Romans 13:10

I'm not saying this guy was doing harm per se, but something about screaming "You're going to hell" to a group of college students trying to get to class just doesn't seem like love to me. Maybe that's just me though. Again, not judging, just giving my opinion.

Well, I hope that this pastor sees this because I really do just want to make sure he reads all of God's word before he preaches it. I'm really just looking out for him. There are certainly more than he must of missed, but I just thought these would be a good start. Anybody who has been judged or condemned by an "evangelist" like this, please excuse the fact that they forgot about quite a few Bible verses in their preaching. I just want you all to know that no matter who you are, no matter what you believe, no matter how others want to make you feel, God loves you, and so do I.
