We can't stop negative thoughts from entering our mind but we can choose not to give them a permanent space there. When thoughts of worry, fear, or jealousy try to take root we need to let those go and replace them with faith-filled thoughts. When we dwell on what God says in His Word, there won't be room for defeating thoughts to take hold.
You’re not supposed to be a doormat for people to walk all over, control you, demean you, belittle you, make you feel not good enough. You need people around you that inspire you, people who cause you to dream bigger.
God is going to keep making you, molding you, giving you grace to come up higher until He finishes. The key is to accept yourself while God is in the process of changing you. Know that He is pleased with you right where you are.
Don’t judge your future based on the progress you’ve seen in the past. God is not limited by a normal timeline. God controls time. What looks like is a long way off, get ready, it’s going to happen sooner than you think.
