For as he thinks in his heart so is he

What a blessing it is to overcome the mountain of yourself! It is said that you cannot ask God for another mountain (a mountain is illustrative of a challenge or a quest) if you do not conquer the mountain of yourself. When hearing this at church a few weeks back it made the most sense to me.

Sometimes we pray for things to happen in our lives, but we don’t even know ourselves well enough to determine if we have the capabilities of conquering said challenge. I can honestly say that ever since I’ve been real with myself and accepted myself for who I am, conquering other mountains hasn’t been easy but it’s definitely been doable. Each time I conquer a mountain, I grow a little more. My pastor said “If you want to grow in this life you need to increase your threshold of pain” and as time goes by I’m starting to see this notion come true to form.

Something that has been helping me with my battle of anxiety is really taking time to sit with my myself to understand who I am, and what my calling is. Being sure of myself and analysing myself from within helps me to lessen the feeling of anxiousness. It helps me to reassure myself and remind myself that I am capable of defeating whatever it is that is making me anxious.

The bible says in Proverbs 23:7
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (NKJV) so I try to remember my life’s purpose as well as the things that God has placed in my heart and remind myself that that is who I am. My momentary affliction and my battle with anxiety is not a direct illustration of who I am.

I can’t lie, every now and then something happens or someone comes by and makes me reassess whether or not I’m good enough, but I’m actively trying to remember that I am. Not only am I trying to remember, but I’m actively trying to publicly reinforce it so that others can see my confidence and no longer doubt my abilities.

I hope you’ve all had a lovely bank holiday weekend (I’ve been in bed for 3 days as I seem to have caught an awful virus) and I hope that you have a great week!
