Thursday Thirteen - Affirmations

These last couple of weeks have been terribly unsettling. It's hard to be at the brink of losing all faith, all hope. But, deep down I know that all is well. So today I'm sharing thirteen things I know for certain.

1. I am a daughter of God and He loves me unconditionally.

2. My Savior lives. He loves me. He knows me. He suffered and died for ME, so that I need not suffer at times like this. I simply need to let Him take my load and trust that the peace will come.

3. I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me.

4. The Lord will never ask me to do anything without giving me the strength to do what He asks of me.

5. I am of infinite worth.

6. Life is good. We're meant to be happy, we're meant to have joy.

7. My Heavenly Father doesn't want me to feel miserable and paralyzed with guilt and fear. He simply wants me to let go of the past, put my trust in Him and keep taking one step at a time.

8. Every moment of life is a blessing. Every difficulty is a privilege, an opportunity to better know God.

9. The Lord has a plan for me. I may be a mess. I may only get to see one glimpse at a time of where I'm going, but He knows the way.

10. No matter what happens, if I keep the faith and trust the Lord, everything will give me experience and will work together for my good.

11. I have wonderful family and friends who love me and will always be there, willing to help me.

12. I have the capacity to do so much good. And I will.

13. I am enough. I have enough. I do enough. I am good and need to be much more gentle with myself.
