When the weight of the day gets so heavy
and you feel so alone
and you wonder if anything really matters
or if it makes a difference at all.
Each day you wake up
just for that day
may the feelings and the thoughts and the words
But they aren't.
They still slink and slide
in and out
through your brain and into your heart.
But this is what I want you to know.
You can fight yourself as well.
You can fight those lies with the truth.
You can learn a new way to think
by taking those thoughts captive
and replacing them with the heart of our God.
You are loved
He is your strong tower
He will always be with you
You will never be alone
You are beautiful
You are special
You are chosen
The attacks come from all areas. The lies are spoken and thought. The truth can beat them every time but it will take time. And when the hard days come again you have to fight again. But it will go, and it will not define you, and you will realize you can fight because you are so much stronger with God than by yourself.
And He loves you.
