“I miss my mom,” was all I could think on the plane from Montreal to Vancouver. It’s not Mother’s Day and I’ve never been sentimental, but watching a French mom soothe her toddler to sleep made me miss my own mother.
No matter how clear it was that you don’t have a future with someone, it’s still not easy to just stop thinking about him after a breakup. These ideas will help you let go of those harmful thought patterns and start changing how you think, feel, and live each moment of your life.
It’s a struggle for both Christians and unbelievers: How do you stop doing what you don’t want to do? Maybe you’re like me, and you want to learn how to stop worrying about what people think. Maybe you’re like my friend Sam, and you want to learn how to stop believing lies about yourself.
How do you deal with feeling constantly guilty? Maybe you committed a sin long ago, such as cheating or stealing. Maybe you didn’t do anything wrong and yet you feel constant guilt for some unknown reason.
You have no reason to feel guilty; you didn’t do anything wrong or bad (at least not lately!). And yet you feel a strong sense of guilt. Nobody is accusing you or trying to make you feel guilty but you just can’t shake your feelings of unworthiness and shame.
How do you know God cares for you? What are the signs of God’s love and protection? Finding proof that God cares about you can be as simple as looking up at the starry night sky, or as complicated as studying the book of Revelation for signs of Jesus Christ.
