Today has been difficult. I am having a hard time 'turning off' my mind. Those incessant 'voices' telling me that I'll never be good enough, that this pain will never end, that nothing I do really matters, I'll never measure up, I've failed, etc. I know that the Devil is wanting to hold me back from these new freedoms I'm experiencing and I will not, THROUGH THE LORD, lose this battle.
I KNOW my goodness comes from Christ, alone. I KNOW I have nothing to prove. I KNOW that this pain will end. I KNOW that Christ has already worn the battle and I KNOW that all else is temporary. I KNOW that God loves me as I am. I KNOW His love covers all of my regrets, my mistakes, my fears.
I pray that God will remove any thoughts that are in not in accordance with His Word and His Will and replace them with His truths, His mercies, and His peace. I also pray for the ability to mentally and physically rest for the next few hours so that I may give my best to my sweet students tomorrow; they deserve no less.
