"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble,
whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable—
if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—
think about such things."
This past week I heard this question while listening to an interview online. It nearly took my breathe away as I had an "aha" moment. I found myself nodding while at the same time thinking, "Oh my goodness!" YES!
Do any of you find yourselves being hard on yourself? Do you speak to yourself in ways you would never speak to your loved ones? Do you have a bully living in your head? And if so, does this bully have a name?.
Here is one of the times where God's commandment on love comes to mind.. Loving God, loving others, AND loving ourselves. Being obedient to God would mean letting go or removing that bully from our heads, and thinking and talking about things that build us up, encourage ourselves and others and renew our minds. Tell that bully in your head to take a hike!
