Each Tuesday, we’ll hear courageous thoughts from the hearts of our very own leadership team. As our team shares their own moments of courage, I encourage you to find the same bravery in yourselves.
Today’s Finding Courage post comes from Lauren, a member of our hospitality team:
Do you have a go-to verse that helps you in times of self-doubt, either as a mom, as a wife, as a friend, etc?
Philippians 4:8 | Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.
This is a verse that I speak over myself multiple times a day. When I am bombarded by the negative thoughts that infiltrate my mind every day- sometimes it feels like every second. You know…the ones telling you that you’re not good enough (as a mom, a wife, an employee, a friend, a sister, a daughter, etc); that you’re not pretty enough; that you won’t amount to anything; that you’re not a good enough Christian. When fear, anxiety, or doubt creeps in, that’s when some TRUTH is needed. My mind tends to wander easily, so I feel like I need to focus it back to what is true, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy- quite often. This is also the verse that I pray over my daughter every night. I cover her thoughts, her dreams, and her mind with these truths.
