Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
So I have been thinking about when you have those negative thoughts that bombard you.
You know the ones that say-
- You are not good enough
- You cannot do anything right
- You will never be any good
- You are a fraud
- You are useless
- You don’t deserve to have a good life
- You don’t deserve…………….
And then there are the what ifs……….
Worry, worry and more worry.
I know them well.
Those are the thoughts of condemnation and shame.
This is not what God thinks about you.
He wants you to be made whole and well.
Yes you might have made mistakes, yes you might have upset someone, yes you are still on the journey.
Yes you might be regretting things that you have said and done.
What do we do when the thoughts are consuming us?
Pray give them over to God and let him heal you.
Read His word and see what He says about you.
Let His peace be over your mind today.
Be anxious for nothing.
Read that again.
You will get through this.
I love that we are a work in progress.
Today make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee and just breathe.
