Things I need to hear...

I read something this afternoon that made me pause. I think it's important to share this; more important than the fabric swag I was planning on posting. I'm not going to add much, since Melissa writes better than I.

If I had it my way, every woman and girl in the world would view herself as God sees her, not as she sees herself or as others may tell her she is. When I compared my negative thoughts to God's Word, I was amazed at the differences:

My thoughts tell me to give up. God's Word tells me to be committed. Matthew 5:33-37
My thoughts tell me “I need it now!” God's Word tells me to exercise self-control. Galatians 5:23
My thoughts tell me I deserve to come first, be selfish. God's Word tells me to have humility and put others first. Philippians 2:3-4
My thoughts tell to get mad and hold a grudge. God's Word says forgive as many times as it takes. Matthew 18:21-22

My thoughts tell me I need to look good on the outside and no one will notice the ugly inside. God's Word tells me to be pure on the inside and the outside won't even matter. Proverbs 31:30
My thoughts tell me I'm ugly. God's Word tells me I'm wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
My thoughts tell me I'm all alone and no one understands me. God's Word tells me He will never leave me He knows the plans and He has for me. Deuteronomy 31:6, Jeremiah 29:11
