Don’t waste a single minute this week thinking insecure thoughts.
As a wise person once said, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
We really don’t have time for worrying about trivial problems, or thinking we can’t do this or that.
Clear your head of the Pinterest-perfect life you see on social media. Be present when you’re around other people and not miles away on a screen. Know that your worth is grounded in the fact that God loves you so much.
There is a verse I have on repeat in my head. I cemented it in there by making it a part of my every day, and at first, it was just a great thing to say in the mornings. But then I started realizing just how useful it was.
After having moved this year, my to-do list has grown tremendously. And with a curious and very mobile baby to add to the list of jobs I ALREADY have to do – moments of feeling completely overwhelmed and under-energized would pop up.
That’s when I realized just how important the verse was that I had ground into my head…
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” – Phillippians 4:13
All things, it says. Once you start repeating that to yourself over and over again, you’ll be amazed at the number of situations you’ll be able to apply it to.
Don’t love what you see in the mirror? You can do all things – including find how beautiful God made you.
Want to lose weight? You can do all things – including knowing what to eat or do to best work with your body.
Don’t know how you’re going to balance work and motherhood? You can do all things through the strength that comes from God.
Have dreams and desires but you don’t know they’ll come about? Through Christ!
I could make this list miles long. You apply it to whatever it is you need this week…and for the rest of your life.
The sign I’m holding in the picture has a list of things that can more easily be done when you’re confident in the person God made you to be. Which is what He’s called us to do – meditate on His word (Psalm 1:3), enjoy life (John 10:10), experience a peace that passes all understanding (Phillippians 4:7).
Then share the eternal joy and peace with others!
