My moods have been all over the place lately. Excited with new ideas I can't wait to get started on one moment. And then filled with self-doubt, worry and negativity the next. It just goes to show that we are forever a "work in progress." Some days we are strong and courageous and full of God-fidence. Other days we hear the enemy's voice much louder and fall into old patterns of internalizing and believing the lies. Recovery from anything - means unlearning the broken familiar patterns. It's not a "one and done" fix. Even though I KNOW God's truth - I still have a hard time loving myself most days. This week has been especially hard for many reasons and I let it take me to the place I am most familiar - a place where I question my worth and my purpose - until I actually convince myself that I have neither. Today, I am thankful that I am able to (after a period of whiny, pity parties filled with lots and lots of self-loathing) Come back to God's truth and start again. His mercies aren't only new every morning. His mercies are new every moment. So if you are currently where I am, I think it's time we both take a deep breath, reset, stand back up on that strong foundation...and keep moving forward!
