Ok. Let’s review.
(She says to herself first.)
Here are phrases that do not show up in The Good Book.
These words were never said by The Great Promise Keeper…
You’ve got a big load of stuff to do today. Good luck with that.
Sure wish today was over. It just keeps getting worse.
You always mess up. Can’t you just get your act together?
You’ve been struggling with that situation for years. It’s not going to change.
It’s never going to end, you know. Bad stuff happens.
This is just a really bad day. And you haven’t even gotten out of bed. Why keep trying?
Here are the words He did say…and the promises He keeps…
I give you peace. (John 14:27)
I have plans for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
I lift you out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and mire. I set your feet on the solid ground and steady you as you walk along. (Psalm 40:2)
God never walks around wringing his hands, muttering “Oh, dear. My, my, my. What shall I do? Her life is so messed up. I sure hope things get better.”
God wraps His arms around us and says, “I’ve got you. We’re doing life together. Hope in Me. Trust Me. I have not forgotten about one single worry or mess you’re experiencing.”
It is always the right time for a review and reset.
We don’t have to wait until tomorrow to have a better day.
Take one of God’s promises. Say it out loud. Make it your focus for the hour.
Reset your thinking.
Reset your day.
The next moment can be a better moment.
And that better moment will create a better day.
You are not walking alone today.
Almighty God who knows your heart is right there with you.
You are loved.
