Are we trusting God to complete his work in our lives or are we trying to finish the job for him? God’s after something completely different than our getting it all together.
If I get-it-all-together, how long do I have to keep it up? We can’t rely on self to get-it-all-together and experience freedom in Christ at the same time. You just can’t go two ways at the same time.
If I get it all together, how much is enough? So how much better do you have to be to be good enough? How much more rightness does it take to be righteous enough? Are we asking the wrong questions?
I recently had a very spiritual AHA moment: If I get it all together, where will I put it? And by the way, what is IT? Can anyone actually define the IT in get-IT-altogether?
Believe that you matter. You have value and worth. Don’t swallow the lies and rejection of others that can make you feel worthless. These words aren’t from God and they are not true (1 Corinthians 6:20, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Thessalonians 1:4) Agree with what God says about you in His Word. Agreeing is faith…
To the one who’s forgotten she matters. A familiar thought invades: “It doesn’t matter how much you do. It will never be enough.” The leap from feeling a disappointment is as quick as the inhale of breath: “You don’t matter. Your feelings don’t count.” How can loving ourselves squelch the lies that tell us we don’t matter?
