Be Kind to Yourself

Do not conform to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what
God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.—Romans 12:2 (NIV)

Some people keep a running list of their failures and regrets and then they wonder why they feel down and depressed. If you make a mistake or say something you wish you hadn’t, let it go. Learn from your blunder and move on. Discipline your thoughts and focus on how you’ve continued on, persevered and succeeded. Look to the good.

Dear God, when I fall into the habit of being hard on myself and dwelling on mistakes, remind me to rejoice in my victories instead.
