Happy Wednesday! This week’s Wardrobe Wednesday comes from Hebrews 12:7-
“Ensure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father?”
Growing up, I hated being told I did something wrong or disciplined in any shape or form & I’m sure I’m not the only one who heard the words “one day you will understand”. As I got older, something clicked in my head and I realized that being disciplined is for my good and for the good of my future. I’ve learned to look at everything in my life in this way. Most of the time when we don’t get what we want or are going through a rough time, we might feel as though we are being “disciplined” by God. Not getting that promotion we wanted, or even having a close friend tell us that we did something wrong can hurt our feelings and make us feel bad. These “hard” times are there to teach us a lesson and make us better people.
This week, I challenge you to write down something that you see as a hardship on the top of a piece of paper. Now, below it, write down all the positives that have, or can happen, as a result of your problem. The positives written on the bottom of the paper are the lessons learned that only could’ve happened if you went through that rough patch written on the top of your paper! Keep this paper somewhere visible all week as a reminder of your great future ahead & remember to always look towards the future and never in the past!
Until next time!
