Psalm 121:1 (New International Version)
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
Just checking in to say--it's going well with the storyboard since I created it on Sunday.
Where I was feeling defeated, I feel confident.
Where I was tired, I feel rested.
Where I felt sluggish, I feel energized.
Change--positive change--is happening. Rah!
I'm reviewing the storyboard regularly to change my mind about who I am--reminding myself that I am a new creation in Christ--and reminding myself of who that person is.
Amy Carmichael writes in her journalled thoughts, published in the book, Edges of His Ways:
"Can we command our thoughts? I believe we can. God has given us the power to close the shutter of our minds upon hurtful, weakening thoughts. He has provided all manner of shutters. A book that swings us off ourselves and into another world is a very good shutter; a song set to music; beauty; the dear love of those who love us. Above all, there is this: Look at Calvary. Look steadfastly. Take time to look and all within you will be hushed, for power streams forth from Calvary. We need never know defeat.
Romans 8:25 (New International Version)
25But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
