Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Self-condemnation is something most of us have in common. We’re constantly beating ourselves up over things we wish we hadn’t done. It’s one of the reasons we get weary and fearful about the future; we think what we’ve done has messed up what would have been. It seems to me this is the sincerest form of self-flattery; believing we are in control.

getting closerIf there’s one thing we should be thankful to God for, it’s the fact we are not in control. Man has a vivid imagination, and as time goes on, we seem to believe we are much more intelligent and powerful than we truly are. We can be powerful, but only when we realize the source of our knowledge and strength comes from God.

We learn from our mistakes then move forward.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1

    So true, so true. When we become full of our own discomforts, it is easy to forget all that God does, and has done, and that God will take care of us in the future. Mark Twain: “I have been through some terrible things in my life; some of which actually happened!” Sometimes the discomforts we feel are actually, anxiety and worry. that lead us to Self-condemnation, ((I should have, would have, could have, (done something else.)) God hears us when we Pray. Thank you God.

    • Well, you know me and Mark went to different schools together, don’t you? 🙂
