I think Winston Churchill said it best, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”
Confession: I’ve let emotions rule me for about 6 months. A door closed for me & it stung. I have not been taking negative thoughts captive & have wallowed in my disappointment.
Failure. Disappointment. Rejection. Shame. Guilt. These are a few examples of battlefields in which a war for your soul is waged upon. These things are part of life. They’re a certainty, like death & taxes.
Where WE have the power is in our response. Many people allow these things to take root, and it’s a bitter root. Sadly, many of us die on these battlefields.
You can tell who these fallen soldiers are by the fruit of their lives. Often they’re negative; victim mentality.
I refuse to be that way.
I’m thankful for friends who remind me who I am when I forget. I’m thankful for the time spent tending to my wounds & help escorting me off the battlefield before I die there.
Don’t die there. Keep going.
