Rise Again

As for overcoming feelings of disappointment because you did some incredible piece of stupid, it always helped me to ask myself, “What good is it going to do you or anyone else to stay here in the hole of no impact beating yourself up? What good is wallowing? Why not get up, rise again, and start partnering with God again!” That mindset will always help far more than a day of self-pity followed by a night of self-loathing. If and when you do commit a sin, immediately renew your mind to agree with God about your standing with Him in the midst of your difficulty and ‘guilty’ feelings. Turn from any unbelief and instead agree with who God still says you are. Dare to believe one poor choice did not change or alter your identity and union with Christ. Rise up with the understanding, an apple tree is STILL an apple tree even if there are no apples on it right now. ‪#‎trueYou https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/trueyou?source=feed_text&story_id=10208511746451814 ‪#‎chapter3 https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/chapter3?source=feed_text&story_id=10208511746451814
