What a good reminder! We always have a tendency to have “Pity parties” and when we do, we deny our true identity in Christ.

God’s thinking is unchanging. It will never be affected by any circumstance. His truth and promises will prevail no matter what situation we are in.

This simple comparison is such a good reminder and nudge for those of us who have self-doubts once in a while. Will print this and put it on my desk. So I get to dismiss all these senseless thinking immediately. The bible has the simple answers for all questions we’ve pondered on too long.
