Whether blowing out candles or throwing a coin in a fountain, we’ve all made wishes. They seem like fantasies, but some small part of us holds out hope that they could come true. Some of our wishes are silly and frivolous. But some of them are huge. Sometimes we feel stuck in life. We know where we are, but wish we were somewhere else. How do you turn those big wishes into reality? How do you get from here to there?
If there’s a difference between the way God sees you, and the way you see yourself, you are the one not seeing straight. To see how God sees, believe what God says. Don’t let your self-image get in the way of what God wants to do through you. Believe him! See you how he sees you—as a son or daughter of the King.
Self-control starts in the mind. It is key to getting where you wish you were. What are the thoughts that result in behaviors you’re trying to avoid? What are the thoughts you need to take captive? Take time to think about it. Choose thoughts that result in behaviors you wish for your future.
