It is tempting to get pulled into debating the old familiar lies and devaluing messages. If they were a bully, that is exactly what they would want you to do.
Refuse to give them your attention. Acknowledge them for what they are and learn to ignore them with the blood of Jesus. Flag them and bag them.
For good fruits such as grace and patience to flow out of you onto others, it first has to be flowing into you
Be open to receive the life flow. Turn away from anger and trying to control things and get into God’s abiding flow, which is greatest when you learn to let the trivial things go.

Soul care is turning away from the anxious thoughts and feelings and going to the filling station of love. Take your time as you receive the life giving nutrients of His gracious presence.

Being kind to oneself. Allowing love, grace, and acceptance in to those wounded parts of our soul. Becoming our own good parent and caretaker.

Many of us walk with an emotional limp because of the things done to us or things we needed that we didn’t receive. Bless your limp.
In humility your limp brought you to your need for a Savior. In His desire to be with us, Jesus bent a knee.
There is a box of messages every one of God’s children was meant to receive. For many this box was never sent, for others it was the wrong box completely.
It’s never too late to open your heart to receive the messages God intended you to know deep within your soul. Messages of life, love, and belonging, not rejection, condemnation, and neglect.
