Do you ever feel like there are not enough hours in the day? Like you have not stopped, but feel further behind? That’s the kind of week it’s been for me.
I pray several times throughout the day for various reasons; to give thanks & to ask for God’s help, for big things & small things. One of my daily requests is for His wisdom & discernment when making decisions & for assistance in prioritizing my day. I want to be efficient with my time, allowing me to accomplish all my daily tasks & balancing time with my loved ones & to be present.
So, when my week comes to a close & I look back at my list & see all I accomplished, why do I choose to focus on the few things I didn’t complete? Why do I allow those things to rule my mind & cause unrest, anxiety & feelings of defeat.
I’ve been asking God for help with these feelings the last few days & felt Him telling me: Rebecca, you are enough. I am reminded I don’t need to earn His love. My value isn’t tied to what I do or don’t accomplish, it’s tied to Him & he says, I am worthy.
Learning to control every aspect of your thought life is such a challenge. I’ve been disciplined to do this in some areas of my life very well, but then there are other areas I am still weak & don’t even realize just how weak, until I start putting these thoughts to paper.
The good news is when I’m weak, He is strong. God has my entire day, week & life planned out. Even if I mess up or miss the mark, he works it together for my good.
So today, I remind myself & everyone reading this, that negative self-talk is not from God. He is good. His words uplift. He is cheering us on & when we feel like we failed or we become weary, he is there to pick us up. He has a good plan for our lives.
The enemy of our soul, on the other hand, comes to kill steal & destroy. He has a plan for us too, but it’s not good. Don’t let his lies and negative self-talk destroy you. Shut him down & choose to focus on what God says about you.
As I go into the weekend, I’m no longer focusing on what I didn’t accomplish, but celebrating all the good things I have been blessed with, including what I HAVE accomplished, which is more than enough. We are enough.
