Lies

At just eight years old, our daughter has believed a lie. I have no doubt where it came from, the enemy does not seem to be a respecter of age or innocence. She told me she thinks she is ugly and hates the color of her hair, wishing it was different. I asked who told her these lies, planted the seed, and her response was shocking. She said nobody did, she told herself. Evidence of his whispers. This completely contradicts what is so obvious to anyone and the truth written in scripture. “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” (Psalm 139:14). And there in lies the key, her soul does not know. Her soul does not know that she is one of God’s works. Another thing, if this lie is allowed to take root and grow, her entire life will be impacted. So what do we do? We pray, we tell her the truth, remind her of the gift she is and we do not give up until her soul knows it very well. I am thankful to get watch this happen!
