"I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." John 10:10
I’m praying Jesus continues to free us up to fully live and enjoy the abundant life He made possible for us through His life, death, and resurrection!
With that in mind, here are twenty-two liberating truths taken from Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ book, Lies Women Believe: And the Truth That Sets Them Free! You might want to print them out and place them where you can see them everyday. You may want to try memorizing these truths with their corresponding verses.
Twenty-two Liberating Truths for Today's Woman
- God is good (Ps. 119:68; 136:1).

- God is enough (Ps. 23:1).
- God can be trusted (Isa. 28:16).

- God’s grace is sufficient for me (2 Cor. 12:9).
- The blood of Christ is sufficient to cover all my sin (1 John 1:7).
- The cross of Christ is sufficient to conquer my sinful flesh (Rom. 6:6-7). I don’t have to sin (Rom. 6:14).
- My past does not have to plague me (1 Cor. 6:9-11).

- I’m responsible before God for my behavior, responses, and choices (Ez. 18:19-22).
- I will reap whatever I sow (Gal. 6:7-8).
- The pathway to true joy is to relinquish control of my life, husband, children, and circumstances (Luke 1:38; 1 Pet. 5:7; Matt. 16:25).
