This morning...as I drove to the meeting...I asked the Lord to speak to me through this time. I wanted to be quiet and listen to the wisdom of these beautiful women. It is amazing how you get what you ask for. The message was on setting our minds on Christ. I had to be reminded of this. I have been struggling with feelings of rejection and low self worth these past few days. I could feel depression and hopelessness suffocating me and draining all life in my soul.
As G shared verse after verse...I had to repent and ask the Lord to forgive me. I have allowed thoughts that just are not true to overshadow the real truth.
I have to purposely set my mind and heart on my Savoir. I am His daughter and He has not left me. My feelings of inferiority are just that...feelings. The truth is laid up in His Word. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].
