Silencing Insecurity: Believing God's Truth About You by Donna Gibbs (book review)

Most people are insecure about something. Whether that is in relationships, how they look, how good they are at their roles, something. I found when reading "Silencing Insecurity" by Donna Gibbs, that I have more than I though (which makes me feel a little insecure haha).

I found the book to be helpful in identifying some insecurities and symptoms of them. We can identify insecurities by finishing this sentence: "if only..."

If only I looked like ________.
If only my emotions weren't too much. 
If only I could go here or do that. 
If only I had a friendship like so and so. 
If only my kids acted like theirs. 
On and on. These aren't all necessarily mine but you understand my point. 

Once you identify these identity thieves (as Gibbs calls insecurities) then you can begin to learn how to replace those thoughts (often half-truths and lies from the enemy) with truths from God himself. 

My favorite part of this book was the Appendix. In there Gibbs wrote Scripture Truths for a Secure Identity. Verses you and I can use to remind ourselves of biblical truth and God's love. Replacing our insecure thoughts with truth and promises will help lead us to having identities not of the world but of God. That's something that is secure for eternity.

You can find "Silencing Insecurity" by Donna Gibbs on AmazonSmile (when I clicked on the link it also said I could try it on Audible.com for free!)
