We are such dignified people, with dignified expressions towards our spiritual shortcomings. What if, rather than thinking the “truth”, we actually spoke it out loud? How much healing would we experience when we realize that we are not alone.
“I want to die!”
“My life is a mess!”
“I want to be alone…but I don’t want to be alone.”
“I’m losing it! I’m losing my mind!”
“My kid(s) make me sick! I can’t stand them!”
“I hate this world!”
Of course this list continues and I would be a liar if I said I never thought ANY of these things at some point in my life. All of them, actually. It is okay to not always be okay….and to admit it. It is normal because we are just ,people. We are living in this world. Demands are high. Expectations are ridiculous as we cannot be perfect…EVER.
Here are some positive thoughts to counter the negative:
“If God be for us , who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)
“God, you know me!” (Psalm 139)
“God’s mercy endureth FOREVER.” (Psalm 136)
“Jesus will never leave me nor forsake me.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” (Isaiah 26:3)
For every confusing, hurtful, painful and frustrating thing that you face…speak LIFE into your situation.
