ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TODAY – I Almost Got It Twisted Today!
Today was a day that I nearly lost my mind and got it twisted. Perhaps, you can relate.
If you know anything about my personality, you realize that I am a driver and can be assertive and focused. To some, that can be intimating especially if one has an amiable personality. Well, lately I had been in a situation that was negative with many unfair practices. Because of my continual hurt, I began to take it personally and look at myself for being the problem.
A downward spiral happened in my reaction to other people. I shut down and became angry because of how I was feeling about myself and the environment around me instead of realizing the real problem. As usual, it took a loving pop in the head from the Lord to remind me of the Truth.
He had to remind me that there was no problem in me feeling hurt. The real problem was that I was finding worth in that company and what those people thought about me. Although, that client provided a source of income, the idea of what any of them (including the CEO) thought of me, others did to try to compete with me, how others wanting me to fit into their box, etc. had no more value than a $2 cup of coffee. I was truly casting pearl among swine. I was getting twisted over people and a place that had no (or should have no) worth in my life. I was, in those moments, focusing on those people to set my value instead of remembering and going back to my ULTIMATE source of worth. In Him, I am complete, all-together lovely, righteous, seated at the right hand of the Father, I am fully loved, fully acceptable, fully worthy, etc. Yep, Charlotte got it twisted.
I wanted to share that with you for encouragement to know that we are all in a journey. Some days we are going to get it twisted and other days we are going to walk in who we are in Christ. We are NOT perfect and are never required to be In Him. I love that. I hope and pray this post helps you for the next time you might look to your situation and feel as though you are about to scream.
You can do this!
Be encouraged, it’s a journey not a destination.
