Do you ever have moments where your behavior becomes bad because of something you feel in your heart?
Past hurts, unforgiveness, bitterness, insecurity all speak to the broken place in our heart that when picked at takes us on a roller coaster ride. We become irrational and/or withdrawn. We can even hurt others by acting out from an ugly place.
During these times I like to use both Bible Verses and affirmations to get me through the storm.
For Bible verses on jealousy read this. For Bible verses on insecurity read this.
Affirmations are short phrases that are easily memorized that affirms a truth we know.
These are especially handy when you are weak and need to remember truth instead of emotion.
I love to learn several of these because they are easy to learn and recall.
You should write these on post-its and place everywhere. Make one your lock screen image. Schedule an email for yourself. Use these affirmations to help you remember what is truth.
I am loved by God.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Security is not a gift that I can give myself.
Just because they ___, doesn’t mean I can’t too! It doesn’t mean I’m not good at it.
God loves my broken pieces.
Remain in Him because without Him we can’t do anything.
People do what they want, not what we want.
God can use this bad for His good.
I hope these affirmations will help you have a little extra peace today.
