As You Look Back On Your Week

I love this inspirational, because it says it all so well. Don’t be so hard on yourself if you haven’t accomplished everything on your to-do list. Just sit back, take a deep breath and don’t forget to exhale. Tell yourself that you are loved and highly favored and that you love yourself just the way you are. There is always tomorrow to tackle those things that didn’t get done today. Enjoy life, it’s the only one you have! I pray this blesses you today! Viv

As You Look Back On Your Week
Holley Gerth

I don’t know what the last few days have held for you. Perhaps it’s been a relatively easy week. Maybe a hard one. Or you might have had a bit of both mixed together. And if you’re like me, you’re looking back over all of it and wondering if you could have done more, tried harder, been a little bit better.

So let’s pause for a moment and take a deep breath together. It’s time to remind ourselves that life is not about doing. Life is about loving.

That means if you reached out in kindness to someone this week–offered a smile, gave a hug, listened, helped, comforted, supported, encouraged–then you did well. And it is enough.

“Whoever loves others has fulfilled the law” {Rom. 13:8}

We may understand that we’re free from Old Testament laws and are now under grace. But we can still make up new laws for our lives. They take the form of to-do lists. They show up as unrealistic expectations. They form themselves into accusations that taunt us as we drift off to sleep.

Friend, don’t hold up your week and decide how you did based on law. See instead through the eyes of grace and look for love.

That is what matters most. Not the clean kitchen. Not the completed project. Not the list of goals neatly checked off.

Loving and being loved.

It’s time to enjoy the weekend and the God who has set our hearts free…

XOXO
