When you are at a crossroads in life, it can be a very confusing and even an emotional time. But, God still has a plan for you when you feel stuck, don’t throw in the towel. Read how to identify if you are actually at a crossroads, what to do, and what to learn from the experience.
There have been too many days that I care to admit, that I allowed negative thoughts and self-talk keep me from what God has for me.
But, I found myself saying enough is enough. And, I bet you have had enough too and desire freedom from your negative thoughts.
And, there is where lies the beauty in brokenness. Because our brokenness, just like the broken crayon can still be used. In fact, God uses brokenness for His Glory. It may not feel or seem like it right now, but I pray that one day you will see.
God uses brokenness to show that in our weakness, we must rely on his strength. The beauty in brokenness is a testament to our faith and demonstration to believers and unbelievers alike.
The reality is many of us battle with negative self-talk, whether it is aloud or just our inner thoughts. Many of those questions I mentioned are unpleasant and don’t line up with the Word of God. Yet, Satan can isolate us and make us feel that we are a lone woman on an island. Then, our self-worth is diminished.
I thought I would add more to the subject of Worry. In October, I talked about Matthew 6:24-34 in Do Not Worry About Tomorrow, Part 1. And, the three initial lessons I learned about worrying, which were:
Worrying Wastes Time
We Have to Differentiate Ourselves From Unbelievers.
God Knows Our Needs.
So, God tends to show me when I haven’t conquered something. Or better yet, he allows me to get tested even more to overcome negative or sinful things in my life. Does that ever happen to you?
Like I told you before, we are all going to worry sometimes. And, I am learning day by day to try and overcome it. So, I felt the need to slow down and to even go a little further with Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 6:24-34.
