It's Ok

This week a friend of mine said something to me that has really blessed my heart. Some wise words, that maybe we need to use more often. Because I think that important for us to validate peoples feelings I thought I would share these special words with you all.

"It is ok for you to be concerned about yourself."

How often are we worried about others and it seem alright to be worried about them. But then something comes into our lives and we think there is something wrong with being concerned about ourselves. It seems sometimes other people may even say things that give us the idea that they don't think we should be concerned about ourselves. Like there is something wrong with it.

Now I am not saying we need to be totally self absorbed- only thinking of ourselves. That is called being self centered and we all know that it is not healthy to be self centered. But sometimes things come into our lives that do cause us to be concerned about ourselves. And when they do- it is alright to be concerned about ourselves. And then we need to take those concerns to the One who created us. The One who is able to help us. We are told in 2 Timothy 1:7 that "...God has not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and o a sound mind." So fear does not come from God.

God tells us "Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them(it); for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6

So if you are going through a rough time - know that it is alright to be concerned about yourself - but don't let it consume you. When those thoughts come to you - turn your thoughts towards Jesus and the One who will see you though what ever comes your way. :O)
