“I’ve been in a bit of a bad head space,” my far away friend said in the voice note I received from her. The words couldn’t ring any truer for my own week. I’ve been spent the last few days on an internal topsy turvy emotional rollercoaster. Being the social butterfly that I am, when it comes to hosting a party, count me in! This week was no exception, and once the pity party started, I had no intention of getting off the merry-go-round. I allowed myself to dig deeper and deeper into self pity.
At the end of the day, my blessings are many. After a few down in the dumps days, I am making the conscience decision to count my blessings. My stresses, fears, and worries still creep into my mind, but we are instructed to “[…] take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5. I challenge you today to be active in your thoughts. To stop allowing the lies to take up residence in your mind, but to take each thought captive and speak truth over them instead.
