Standing with strength
When you have PTSD many times you do not see yourself as being strong, thoughtful, capable or worthy. It can be hard to see the progress that you are making when you are seeking treatment. So, it is important to remember that just because you cannot see the progress being made does not mean that it is not happening. We want to encourage you to keep going to and seeking treatment. Keep praying- keep saying “I love you” - even on days when you do not feel like it. Keep smiling and keep standing with strength. You are well on your way to finding more peace, trust, strength, and discipline in your life.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the reminder that we are strong, thoughtful, capable, and worthy of so much. Thank you for the reminder that although we cannot always see the growth and healing that it is happening. Lord, we pray for strength in those moments where the weight seems too heavy to keep going to seek treatment. We especially pray for healing from post traumatic stress and look forward to living a life of peace, trust, strength, and discipline on a consistent basis.
Stand with strength for a moment:
When was the last time you said the words “I love you” to yourself? ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
If it has been a while we encourage you to stand in front of the mirror and look at yourself and say “I love you.” If tears come, let them come, but keep saying “I love you.”
When was the last time you said the words “I love you” to someone that you love? ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
If it has been a while or even if it has not we want to encourage you to tell someone in your life that you love them or that you appreciate them.
Keep giving love away. Keep breathing in and receiving love. Keep standing with strength! Breathe in, breathe out and enjoy your day!
Ya’ll have a beautiful one!
All My Love,
