Battle of the Mind

Ahh… Today is one of those days where I feel like my mind is all over the place. I’m getting myself overwhelmed by the to-do list in my head for the blog, the house, and helping my son learn. I am a task oriented person. So I feel a sense of failure if I don’t “check off” the things on my list.  I then come to the point of just wanting to cry because the list is too long, and I don’t know if I have it in me to accomplish the things I want. {and do them with excellence}

It’s amazing to me the power of the mind. When you start to linger on one bad thought {or lie about yourself} it just starts to compound. I’m a failure. I’m fat. I’m unloved. I’m unaccomplished. I don’t have any friends. I’m just a mom. All lies!!! I am none of those things. I AM a daughter of the most High God. I AM accepted. I AM beautiful and treasured. I AM much LOVED.  I AM redeemed and forgiven from all the sins of my past. Those are the things that are true. This IS my identity, not the former. I no longer have to walk with my head held down in shame or worry what others think of me. The chains that have drug me down from my past have been broken. I have been set free from those things! The only person I WANT to please is my Father above.

With the battle going on in my head I just decided to sit down and turn on some Worship music. {Bethel Live – For the Sake of the World to be exact} It is an incredible album and I definitely recommend getting it, the singers are most definitely anointed by the Holy Spirit. I found myself just relaxing and resting in the Fathers presence. Peace. Calm. Rest.

I am not measured by what I accomplish. I am measured by how I love!

To bring it home; I am not measured by the cleanliness of my house, the amount of meals I make for my family, the times I post on my blog per week, the amount of “Facebook likes” I have, or the appearance of my body. I AM measured on how I love those around me {my neighbors, my family, my friends, my husband} and how I love my Creator.

So… no recipe today. I am off to rest and stop striving!
