“Stop it!” Stop the negative self-talk that rattles around in your head. “Well, you’re not right all of the time. You have to face your mistakes.” Well of course! We all must deal with the blunders of our life: what we say, what we do, and what we fail to say or do. But, some of us continue to beat ourselves up over mistakes of the past. The Bible is clear about reconciliation with another: apologize and feel the pain you have caused. “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.” (Matthew 5: 23-24 NIV) First, apologize and make amends to those you have offended. Then go to God in prayer and leave your burden there. You are not to pick it up and re-injure yourself to the point of crippling your ability to serve Him. To disrespect (diss) yourself whom God loves, is to doubt God’s judgement in some twisted way. I guess you would be dissing God as well. Oops, you don’t want to make that mistake. Trust me, you are not wiser than God. He has planned saving-grace for you. Believe him and practice Prayer Therapy to stop dissing on yourself, the you whom God created and loves. Prayer Therapy can help, praying specifically so God can answer specifically. Our prayer for a return to the love-of-self we had as a child, remember the prayer therapy process, or refer back to previous posts: pray the prayer printed below 3X a day, wait on the Lord to feel his presence, and know he heard you. Let us pray: “Holy Father, creator of us all, your Spirit of Life lives within us. Holy is your name and the name of the Spirit within. Forgive us when we dislike the earthly person you have given us to be, to anchor our soul to Earth for this short stay of ours. Some of us have strong personalities, some are weak, and some are damaged by many events of this world. It is still the shelter for our soul, and for that we thank you, than you, thank you. Help us make peace with our body, our intellect, our emotions, our personality, and our soul this very day, that we may serve you with renewed energy and purpose. Forgive us when we have disliked that gift of life you have given us. Touch us with your warm and loving hand. In the name of Jesus, your son, our redeemer, we pray, Amen” Doris Copyright 2012 Doris Gaines Rapp “God gives us stories that testify to His love.
