Good morning ladies, I pray you have had a blessed week and are looking forward to a peaceful and enjoyable weekend. I want to empower you to do something for yourself to help make your weekend what you want it to be. Understand that no one else can do this for you. It’s one of those situations where if you allow any type of entity outside of yourself to interfere, it could mess it up for you. Sometimes forces outside of you, such as, your family, your friends, your job, or even your own negative thoughts, can influence the way you see yourself. Sometimes they only magnify the negative. They point out your mistakes, they remind you of your past, they can even make you feel less than who God created you to be. I know this because I have personally experienced it, which is why I want to encourage you to be kind to yourself.
The good Lord above knows everything about you. He knows your private thoughts, the mistakes in your past, and the guilt, shame and blame you put on yourself for not being perfect, or at least measuring up to everyone else’s standard of perfection. To Him, none of that matters because God has a love for you that transcends the human opinion. He loves you even if you don’t love Him back. He loves you with all your flaws and imperfections. You are the apple of His eye. His heart’s joy and every time He looks at you His heart smiles.
God is not mad at you for not doing everything right all the time or for not satisfying the needs of everyone when you were not able to. Therefore, give yourself a break and be kind to yourself. Do something good for you without an apology or feeling guilty. Your heavenly father loves you with an everlasting love, so start loving yourself, celebrate who you are, be grateful for what you have, and be kind to yourself every day.
Love and Blessings,
Call to Action: Starting today, every time you have a negative thought towards yourself, capture it and flip it around by remembering to be kind to yourself. Then change that negative thought into something positive and uplifting. Practice it until it becomes as natural as breathing.
