I made some crazy choices last fall and I’m living with the fallout! I lined up a contractor to put in new wooden floors throughout our living area. Fortunately, I didn’t get too carried away and have them re-do our two bedrooms.
We’ve lived with chaos for nearly six weeks—it involved me emptying and moving every file cabinet and drawer to whatever available box and basket I could find. The mess I still have to conquer is finding, organizing, and refiling all the talks, articles, and other ministry “stuff” I’ve created and collected over the years. My triumph today was dumping the files in my laundry basket on the floor – and telling myself the end is in sight! (And the floors are beautiful).
So Happy New Year to YOU! May you not make crazy decisions—but if you do, I hope you enjoy the end result!
Sometimes our mess is physical, and sometimes it comes from what we choose to think and tell ourselves.
With 2018 unfolding, let me encourage you to tackle the messy emotions that result from negative, untrue, and faith destroying thoughts about yourself and God. To experience joy, confidence, and hope, learning to SPEAK GOD’S TRUTH TO YOURSELF is essential.
At a missionary conference in Kenya a few years ago, I told a woman doctor friend about the book, To Pray and to Love, by Roberta Bondi. I lent her my copy which she found enormously helpful in her state of emotional burnout, self-accusation, shame and guilt at not being superhuman.
Have you ever struggled like her?
If you find yourself on the receiving end of your own accusations, those of someone close to you, or the Evil one himself, determine to stop calling yourself names or otherwise punishing yourself. This is NOT what God wants for you.
My prayer for you in 2018 is that you will find freedom from whatever oppresses you, and that God’s love will become the power that frees you.
Qu. Have you struggled with negative accusations? Will you share what has helped you?
