It always starts out with something stupid doesn’t it? For me, it was an annoying customer that turned into me losing it… not to the customer, mind you, but I felt like I lost face with some of my volunteers and employees. I apologized and all, but still felt really stupid.
And then came the real blow. I got home and Satan began with his lies… you can’t do this. Why would you even THINK you could manage a café? You’re so stupid and worthless.
Did you know there is a reason that God never meant for us to be alone? Because you need other people in your life to speak those words of truth into your heart when Satan is coming at your with both guns blaring.
So listen to the words of truth… in your weakness, He is strong. He knows what He’s doing and He doesn’t make mistakes. You serve a faithful God. Listen to His heart for you instead of Satan’s lies.
That may just be me speaking truth to myself, but if those are words that you too need to hear, know that your Father stands with open arms ready to give you a hug when no one else can.
“I love you O Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.” –Ps 116:1-2
