With all of our connections on social media, texting and emails we have lost the art of genuine friendships and relationships. You know the ones where you stop your busy day and grab coffee or lunch with a friend, for no other reason than you just want to spend time together. Unfortunately we are seeing even some marriages loosing the art of connecting as a result.
This has truly become a lost art in society in general. We have become too busy being busy to invest in a true relationship.
We know the Bible tells us to gather together and build each other up…
“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:24-25 NKJV
What is our visual perspective regarding our self?
What do you say to yourself in the morning or even throughout the day?
Would you say those same words to someone else out loud?
We forget our identity is in Christ not in our outward appearance. Plus what we see in the mirror is not what others see. Our minds are so powerful that they can create this false image of our self that causes us to say mean and even hurtful things to our reflection…or maybe just think them!
As women of God we need to start seeing our selves as Jesus sees us not as the world does. You see precious one you are royalty, you are the daughter of a King!
I know for me coming from a place of abuse my mind was and sometimes still is really harsh on myself, I say and think things about me that I would NEVER say or think about another woman. It took a while for a shift in what my mind saw and what my heart saw…personally I trust my heart over my mind.
It took me years of writing post-its and placing them around in the bathroom, my car, wallet and my desk at work that were positive thoughts about myself. Thoughts relating to how others saw me and more importantly how Jesus saw me. I eventually started seeing myself through Jesus’ eyes and not mine.
We need to see our self as Jesus does, if we choose to be negative and harsh on ourselves we are actually taking our eyes off of God and placing the importance on our self. Jesus wants our focus to be on Him, He has it all under control. It is time girls for us to stand and act like daughters of a King!
What action will you take today to begin to love who you are in Christ? Share below I would love to hear from you!
A simple thing we far to often neglect to do with all the stress and things we feel we have to do.
Stop with me now and take a deep breath…breathe in and exhale out…
As busy women entrepreneurs, parents, wives we often have a to-do-list that never ends.
God is loves us so much He wants us to take care of ourselves, get rest and BREATHE!
If we look at Proverbs, in two separate verses God tells us to REST:
A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest.
Proverbs 6:10 NIV and Proverbs 24:33 NIV
Take that time today and BREATHE in the refreshing breath that Christ gives us as His daughters.
If we can do this, we will be of better service to those we are called to serve and our families. You will begin to THRIVE in your business and you will find true JOY in your heart.
Take a quick listen to this song…
