Confession Post

Sometimes, I let little things get me down. Honestly, my problems are nothing compared to some people I know. My issue is in my head. I listen to stupid thoughts sometimes. 

Then, I wake up and read this, "I am ever so near you, hovering over your shoulder, reading every thought. People think that thoughts are fleeting and worthless, but yours are precious to Me. I smile when you think lovingly of Me. My Spirit, who lives within you, helps you to think My thoughts. As your thinking goes, so goes your entire being." ~ Jesus Calling

See, that's where I mess up! I let my thoughts get the best of me and I take my thoughts off the ONE who DOES love me unconditionally.When we get unfocused on who God is, our entire being gets jacked up. 

I am doing much much better with my thoughts about myself though. I do not beat myself up anymore. I think I'm a good person, I'm pretty, and the best mom can I be. I can't tell you how thankful I am to do better with those negative thoughts. Being your own worst critic and putting yourself down is no way to live. There is no sense in it.

I am reminded of that Scripture in Philippians 4 where Paul says, this, 

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthythink about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."

Thinking on such things can be easier said than done, but that's exactly what I'm going to strive for. There is no room for negative junk. My life is full. I am blessed. That's what I need to focus on.

Can you relate to this at all?
