Changing Our Internal Narrative

  “He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.” Psalms‬ ‭103‬:‭4‬ NLT

When we look in the mirror so often we go through a mental cycle, almost like a checklist - saying well I don’t like this, this part could be better, my clothes don’t look great, I don’t even know what my hair is trying to do today - then circle back to “oh well, this is as good as it’s going to get”.

Sometimes it’s as innocent as telling him, that’s not the way you clean that!

The Soul Shaking Change - Becoming a Mom

I don’t want to downplay the overwhelming joy, because it’s there and it’s raw and incredible, but there really isn’t a way to prepare for the soul shaking changes.
