Compliments from other people have been difficult for me to accept, since the separation and emotional divorce. And the atmosphere in the house can be down right ugly.
About a month, or so, ago, and the day after a not-so-nice conversation with my kids’ dad, I found myself going through that same old pattern. I was viewing myself through his eyes, AGAIN. And I hated it.
And so, I was sitting at the computer table, trying to put on my make-up, when I heard this sentence fill my spirit,
You can’t keep projecting what thinks about you onto other people, especially men.
Suddenly I remembered a moment in prayer, many years prior, and I was singing,
Help me to see me through Your Eyes.
And with that, that dark cloud which was looming, lifted. And I felt so much lighter.
A bad marriage can bring such an ugly atmosphere, but with our Father, our Savior Jesus, and the Holy Ghost (Spirit), we can be elevated to a much better state of being.
