I have wrassled with some guilt today.
I know we all do it…. we let it creep in and steal our joy.
It’s past…it’s old news, it’s OVER.
Yet, I still allowed it to overwhelm my thoughts today and take my “ZIP” away like one of my friends observed today. He said, “You don’t seem very zippy today.” He was right. I was down. I was sad. I have things on my mind that my mind has twisted and made stupid. I think about the past and how I could have done this or that right or better …and then I feel like a failure. YUCK!
WHAT WAS I THINKING!?!
As another friend pointed me to my GO TO scripture while I was right in the middle of a mini-meltdown:
“NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER.” -Isaiah 54:17 (I’m horrible at recalling the addresses in the Bible. I can tell you stories or even point you to the book a verse or story came from, but exact spots, my brain doesn’t hold on to. I DO REMEMBER THIS ONE THO…and I know it’s because God blessed me with it. He knew/knows that I NEED THIS VERSE CONSTANTLY.)
I rebuked the stupid devil, rearranged my thoughts and held on to the VICTORY God gave me through Jesus!
He said….. NOT GUILTY!
I love this song which says exactly what I’m talking about:
