Take a moment to think of where you are in life. Are you happy? Are you where you thought you’d be five, ten or even twenty years ago? If yes, then awesome; continue on that path. But if not, take this time–or make some time–to reflect on your thoughts. Do you think highly of or look down on yourself? Do you believe in yourself or not? Listen, I know you don’t know me, but take heart in what I’m about to say.
You are capable of great and wonderful things. You are capable of great relationships, great knowledge and wisdom, of organization, patience and beauty. You are where your thoughts take you. So think well of yourself. If you struggle with this, then do two things: Ask the Lord to show you through His Word and His design of you how much he believes in you. Then find good friends that are encouraging and let them speak into your life. Drop the old you and begin on the you that you’ve always wanted to be.
