Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend? I pray you did.
So, I’ve mentioned a few times about irrational thinking. I hope this term irrational thinking doesn’t offend you. Please don’t take offense, I’m just sharing my personal story.
In previous posts, I’ve talked to you about my counselor calling me out on my thinking patterns. Today I want to talk about hopelessness.
Hopelessness is a product of irrational thinking. Hopeless means to have no expectation of good or success. Hopelessness says that things will never change. It will never get better. My life is doomed. Never? Doomed?
Hopelessness says that Christ can’t change our situation. Not only can he change your life, but he can also give you the grace and the ability to make the necessary changes in your life.
The thing we must understand is that from the moment of conception, we have been in a constant change. Our bodies, our minds, our relationships – they’re all in motion and they are all evolving.
Why not our minds? Why not our lives? Why not our situation? Why would the all-wise and all-powerful God not give you the ability to experience the totality of change? I’m talking about change in your heart, change in your situation, change in your mind.
This is the life of an Overcomer. Having the ability to struggle but not give up. Becoming resilient and having the ability to last through the vicissitudes of life. (Did you see that big word? Yeah, I’m shook too. Lol.)
Thought for today:
I want to remind you that your life, you situation is not hopeless. You are not hopeless. You have purpose. You are worth love and the opportunity to realize your destiny. Stand tall. Be strong. You’re not hopeless, you’re hopeFUL. You’re an overcomer!!!!
It is because of the Lord’s lovingkindnesses that we are not consumed, Because His [tender] compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion and my inheritance,” says my soul; “Therefore I have hope in Him and wait expectantly for Him.”
