It’s Monday again, Overcomers! Did you have a great weekend? I pray so.
If you were in an abusive relationship, would you get out of it as quickly as possible? If someone were disrespectful to you would you let them know? Maybe have a conversation with them? Maybe find out if there’s a misunderstanding?
You’d make steps to remove yourself from an abusive relationship – especially the person perpetrating the abuse, right? So what if that person is you?
As we jump into the new week, I want to ask you to consider how you’re treating yourself. Can you sit down and have a talk with yourself?
What do you tell yourself about your future? What are you telling yourself about your worth? What you deserve? What you don’t deserve? When you look in the mirror, what are you telling yourself?
I want to encourage you by saying this: God doesn’t change His mind about you. His love doesn’t run out, and you are worth the fight it takes for your future.
Thought for today:
The last couple of weeks, I’ve felt like I was at war in my mind. It was as if the right side of my brain was fighting with my left. The right side was saying, “Go for it. You can do it! God put the desire in you to help others.”
At the exact same time, the left side was saying, “What’s the point? Nobody wants or needs your help. You don’t have anything to offer.” #sigh
While I was starting to believe that voice on the right, that left side was irritating me and I wondered if I was going to make it out of the day with my brain intact.
I woke up this morning deciding I was not going to be the one who continued to abuse me. I made a commitment to myself to treat myself with honor, integrity, respect and love. I believe God wouldn’t have it any other way.
Will you make a commitment with me today? To your future? To stay in the fight? To stay on the journey? We’re in this together.
