For a long time, I had a successful career on the outside and low self-esteem on the inside. I struggled to forgive and I also got used to playing the victim as it heightened my sense of self-worth.
It made me feel like I mattered. Over time unforgiveness and low self-esteem consumed me on the inside – like poison. But thankfully, I began to realise Jesus can heal me inside out. As I got to know Jesus deeper, I began to realise that experiencing Him gave me the freedom to worry less about myself. It was liberating. I lost the need to play the victim. I am not perfect and still slip into my old ways at times, but I enjoy a quiet confidence that Jesus is still working on me and won’t ever give up on me.
