Need to Be Loved

My need to be loved and/or liked is probably one of the easiest ways that Satan can squeeze his foot in the door and attack me and I hate it!

It is so silly because I know that I AM LOVED by a God that showers me with unconditional love.

It is so easy for me though to get grumpy when I feel or think that someone doesn't like me.  I start wondering what I did wrong or what is wrong with me?  What did I say or why did I say or do that?  I overthink and worry about conversations that I need to have or have had.

When the reality of it is:  All these things are usually just in my head!  And if I will just stop and allow God to fill me with His Love and tell Satan to go away.....I will quit worrying and stressing and being grumpy about unnecessary things.  I would think we would grow out of these thoughts and insecurities but the reality is that God created us to be LOVED!  So now the struggle is to allow HIM to LOVE us!

"You a Good, Good Father
(You are perfect in all of your ways)
It's who you are, it's who you are, it's who you are
And I'm loved by you
(You are perfect in all of your ways)
It's who I am, it's who I am it's who I am"

I LOVE this song by Chris Tomlin

Does this happen to anyone else?
