Hello every one , I hope you all are well.
Today is a new day. A new chance from our beloved FATHER GOD to start over again with HIS help to guide us. Just like any good earthly dad would to their child. And it is such a wonderful thing to know, we serve a perfect loving GOD!
Only GOD our GOD is perfectly good. Be we as humans are not. We all are different and have different burdens to bear each day in our lives. But we do not have to listen to the negative comments that come from other people. This is not what we need to be doing, distracting others from the ways and will of GOD. As we go through our days, let us encourage one another.
Ephesians 6:10 – 6:20
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Our GOD has created us all to be different. From what I understand, no one person has the same finger print. We are identified by in some jobs of employment or by law enforcement by fingerprints. So with this being said, why should we compare ourselves to others? Seeing that we all have our own design and purpose, we need to know what it is that we need to do to honor GOD.
1 John 4:18
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”
King James Version (KJV)
Being insecure seems to me to be about wanting to be better looking, have more money, more friends, a bigger house or more other material things. It is comparing yourself to others even when you have more material things than the person you maybe envying. Like the grass being greener on the other side of the fence. But the grass had more attention put into it

At work, some of my lady co-workers were talking about how unattractive they feel they are. So, me being me was thinking they are pretty. What are they talking about? Even when I said they were pretty, they did not choose to listen. And if you do not feeling pretty, (or handsome for the men) you will project it and dress or act as such. Wearing frumpy looking clothing that you call comfortable to work or where ever will put you in a certain mindset.
Being distracted from GODS ways is never good. We can still honor our GOD by taking care of our bodies to look presentable for GOD. Never conceited or proud.
Listening to satans ways will get you there quick to feeling insecure. He will get you going anyway he will see fit. Because he knows the weakness of mankind. If a guy sees his self as unattractive, he doing things to his self that will make him look un-groomed with sloppy attire. Women too, no make up and frumpy clothing. This is from satan telling you it does not matter how you look. No one will care or see you.
Satan does not love you or wants to see you ever happy. So he will tell you to go out into the world and when you see a person who is dressed neat and well groomed you will get jealous. And this is because that person is getting the attention you want.
See what is happening here? Satan tells you to dress down, and when you are out in the world you see then you should have taken the time to look better. When you take time to look better , you will see just how good looking you are when you get compliments. Not letting the compliments go to your head though, take them as encouragement.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
King James Version (KJV)

With JESUS helping you to get through all of the distractions that are thrown at you from the evil one to keep you from giving praises to GOD!
What we can do with JESUS to helping us:
Staying away from negative people.
Studying the Bible. Read the scripture I posted, some is out of context. So you will need to read the whole verse or chapter.
Praying, at all times with out ceasing. Stay in the steady flow of reaching out to GOD the FATHER.
Ask JESUS to help you get through what ever it is you are going through. JESUS will not let you down. He knows what it is like being around people who are lost.
