So often we use negative words to describe ourselves. If someone were to hide a microphone nearby and record you for a day, would it record you calling yourself all kinds of names? Things like... You're so stupid. You really screwed up. You're fat, you're incompetent, you're not good enough, etc. You get the picture?
That used to be me. But I have changed my speech. The Psalmist writes in Psalm 42:5:
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
So he acknowledges his pain and then he speaks out what is true- like he's preaching to himself.
What we say about ourselves out loud, matters. Our mistakes don't define who we are in Christ. Neither does what other people say. That's why when "Hello My Name Is" comes on, I turn it up and I sing it out loud. Who am I... on my best day and my worst?
Hello my name is Child of the One True King. That's the truth.
