The Bible says in Romans 8:1 that "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spiritl of life set me free from the law of sin and death."
My negative self-talk was destroying my progress. If I overate or didn't exercise on the days I was supposed to, I would beat myself up in my head...bad. I thought I was a bad person or not what I "should" be in my marriage, my work, my finances, my family life. Criticism and anxiety ruled my mind. I scrambled to do everything "right" and be everything to everyone.
I read that verse and it changed my negativity to praise. I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
I am right where God wants me to be. My destructive self-talk had almost defeated me but thank God, His Word is powerful and true. I am not condemned by Him and should not condemn myself either. "Be anxious for nothing."
