Self-talk reveals more about a woman than she may realize. Does she speak to herself with positive words or words of self-loathing? Truthfully, it is much easier to focus on her broken parts, whether it is bodily imperfections, struggles with sins, or circumstances that can’t be changed. The mirror and the mind become battlegrounds, thoughts launching inward like grenades.
When a woman places her trust Jesus Christ, she is more than her sins or her victories. She is whole in her Savior. She is whole because Christ gave her His all—His righteousness, His riches of wisdom, His perfect life for hers. He called her to follow Him so that she could share in His abundant life, redeemed by His grace and cleansed by His blood. His love lets her deflect the cruel words she had aimed at herself, reminding her that she is made in the image of Christ.
In Christ, She is no longer condemned because of her sin—He has wiped it away (Romans 8:1). In Christ, she is never alone—He has given her His Spirit to comfort her (Romans 8:26-27). In Christ, she can stand bravely, content in whatever situation she finds herself—His hand is there to sustain her (Philippians 4:13). Nothing—good or bad—can change His love or complete acceptance of her. He looks at her and sees His beloved for whom He died—His bride, His delight.
Father God, thank You that Your love never changes, Help me see myself the way Christ does and that because of his sacrifice for this wretched sinner, I am a new creature. I have been made whole through the blood poured on Calvary. In Jesus name.
Remind yourself that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. As an elect child of God you have been made whole. Take this time to give praise and honor to the One who saved you from your brokenness. Thank Him for awakening you from a sleeping death and making you whole and alive in Him.
