“If there’s only one thing you cling to tonight, I hope it’s this: There is no future in your past. I don’t know what ugly your past holds. I don’t know what pain your presence holds. But I do know that there is no future there. And you certainly aren’t defined by it.
Because of one powerful truth: is the gospel has the power to transform our self-understanding so that it is no longer based on our performance in life. It humbles us into the dust while simultaneously exalting us into the heavens, declaring our worth through trumpets and whispers alike.”
So please don’t give up. Please don’t throw in the towel. Please don’t define yourself by the failures you’ve faced, or the targets you’ve missed, or the shame you’ve buried away deep inside. You’re worth more than that. And you CAN do this. And even if you couldn’t, your inability doesn’t define you, anyway. – Soul Script
It’s a wonderful feeling to know we are hugged by our Father every second of the day and to know He is always there. Some days we just need someone there, someone who will listen to us, someone who will pick us up when we are at our weakest and we get frustrated, frustrated at the world around us, frustrated at our loved ones, and even frustrated with our own selves. Come on! It’s those pity parties that we throw ourselves, it’s the thoughts that take over our delicate mind, it’s the hardness of ourselves. We are so hard on ourselves. Why do we beat ourselves up so much over the little things? We forget that we aren’t alone. It just amazes me how patient He is with us. I know for me, I forget that and I forget that I am not alone. It’s easy to allow anxiety, stress, moodiness, and any other feeling that alters your mood cover up the seat where you know Jesus always is… however, he is not covered up, we may feel like it, we may feel angry, we may feel discouraged, and walk our way right into unnecessary sorrow for ourselves but cultivating a spirit-filled mindset and twisting that mindset to see the goodness quickly puts you back in-line.
Looking at the big picture. The thoughts that we may fill up in our head is only tiny matter compared to what God can fill.
