Balancing Act 2 – From God’s Perspective

Servant Leader,

So, how is the whole balancing act of your life and ministry going this week? Let’s join Dr. Lori Salierno with an excerpt from her book, Balance At Its Best (www.celebratelife.org). I hope this thought will especially speak to those under the weight of criticism (from within and without) and/or who are feeling less than they hope to be…

“You can never hope to achieve a well-ordered life unless you begin to see yourself through God’s eyes. When you are hit with a barrage of negative criticism, tricked by lies, or shaken by circumstances, only His perspective of you will keep you on an even keel. So, here they are, straight from the Source – positive truths about you.

Anytime you are feeling down, doubtful, or discouraged, repeat these concepts to yourself:

I have peace with God (Romans 5:1)

I am accepted  by God (Ephesians 1)

I am a child of God (John 1:12)

I am filled with the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 2:12)

I have access to God’s wisdom (James 1:5)

I am helped by God (Hebrews 4:16)

I am reconciled to God (Romans 5:11)

I have no condemnation (Romans 8:1)

I am justified (Romans 5:1)

I have God’s righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21 & Romans 5:19)

I am God’s representative (2 Corinthians 5:20)

I am completely forgiven (Colossians 1:14)

I am sustained by God (Philippians 4;19)

I am tenderly love (Jeremiah 31:3)

I am the aroma of Christ to God (2 Corinthians 2:15)

I am a temple of God (I Corinthians 3:16)

I am blameless and beyond reproach (Colossians 1:22)

Believers are God’s people, unique and special. Let us never forget our significance. God created you to be the very best you can be. Experience the freedom of being that person. Appreciate your uniqueness. Experience God’s love and truly enjoy who you are. If you can come to see yourself this way, you won’t have to prove your worth to anyone, including yourself. When you fail, this truth will give you the energy and courage to dust yourself off and start over again.”

Balancing with you,

tom
