“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”
~Proverbs 23:7

“I’m so stupid!” I smacked my hand to my forehead. “How did I make that mistake?” I shook my head and sighed. I had a busy day ahead. My mistake would add a good hour to my workload. I went for my morning walk, but it didn’t help my mood. I couldn’t enjoy the birds singing, or the gentle breeze.

“Are you going to beat yourself up all day?” God asked me just as I was turning the corner towards home.

“I made a stupid mistake. I’m so dumb!” I said.

“Be careful with your words, Sparrow. They create your reality,” God said kindly. “You are what you think you are.”

I walked up the steps to my house. I thought to myself, I’m human. I’m fallible. It’s okay because I am a child of the living God who adores me. With that thought, my mood brightened. As I opened the door, I could hear the finches at the bird feeder singing. I could feel the gentle breeze ruffling my hair. “I’ll do my best to remember that I am as I think I am. I’ll think good thoughts!”

“Atta girl,” God whispered in my ear, a verbal divine fistbump. I grinned from ear to ear as I got ready to go to work feeling happy and capable.
