To say I was feeling a little blah today is an understatement. An overwhelming sense of insecurity has been building up inside over the last couple of weeks and totally overcame me today on my way to work. It was a feeling of great uncertainty and doubt in myself that I couldn't seem to shake off. And it's not even that life is throwing me lemons or anything like that. On the contrary, everything is seemingly intact in the grand scheme of things, but a series of events and a peruse through The Alchemist (<-- a must read!) has led me to question- I am walking in my purpose? Am I the best me I can be? No, I'm not...and that revelation is weighing me down.
I can't let that happen.
After all, It's well within my power to change, to redirect my life's course if need be. I'm made in His image, my life is in His hands. My peace is not to be sourced by outsider opinions or material validations. The peace is already within me, and so is that power. I was reminded that "Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4), which goes along with a statement made on this blog, that "Peace is the knowledge that there is nothing greater, bigger, stronger or more effective than what is inside you." That something is God's peace. The peace that surpasses all understanding (Phillipians 4:7).
I decided that I needed to make daily affirmations of this and did so by creating this screen saver, which will serve as constant reminder. I do this pretty often actually and it's really helpful. Plus it makes my phone look all pretty and stuff :-P. Anywho, I feel a lot better now.
How do you stay encouraged? Anybody else create unique screen savers like this? Please share!
