Do you talk to yourself the way you’d talk to someone you love?
Practice talking to yourself the way you talk to someone you love. If you’re someone who says you don’t have an internal dialogue, consider how you think of yourself. The point is this: practice self-compassion.
Lord Jesus, because of your great love for me, I know love. Because of your love, I want to share love. Because of your love, I need to practice self-compassion. May all that I say, do, and feel today be done for your glory and in light of your love, Lord. Amen.
Tonight, after 8 p.m. join us on the Transforming Mission Facebook page to respond to the following question (or feel free to comment below).
What was challenging about talking to yourself the way you talk to someone you love? What was easy? How will you continue to practice self-compassion?
