An open letter to all those steeped in self-pity today. I was there a long time ago. I have compassion but I have learned……
Self pity helps nothing. NOT ONE THING! Feelings are not reliable FAITH is an act of our will.
When we get into self pity we do not realize that there are many other people experiencing the same things. The difference is some go forward each day, trusting God to make it able for us to withstand what we see as the injustices of the world.
We falsely believe our lives are worse then everyone else’s life. Maybe they are and maybe they are not.
The more time we spend in self-pity the worse our situation will become. We come into agreement with Satan and he loves that.
Even if it’s true that your situation is bad you can turn the tables by finding something positive and talking about that.
You may be lying in bed steeped in self-pity writing about your sad situation on FB but YOU HAVE A BED WITH A ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD AND OBVIOUSLY A WAY TO GET ONLINE. THATS A BLESSING FOCUS ON THAT!
I do life coaching and so do a lot of other people. If you find yourself so steeped in self pity you cannot become unstuck find a Christian life coach to give you a hand up.
Truth be known you have the power to do it all yourself. You simply have to want it to change.
I am going to be honest. Self pity is an attention getting device.
No one can change your life but you. When you make that decision God meets you right there and helps you. You come into agreement with God whose Word tells us in Philippians 4:13 “ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”
Right now you are agreeing with Satan whom the Word tells us has come to steal, kill and destroy.
John 10:10 The thief comes not but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I am come that they might have life, and might have [it] abundantly.
The body cooperates with the words that we speak. Please quit speaking death over your life, self pitier. You are your own worse enemy.
In Gods Unconditional Love,
