Pictures on the wall
Have you seen some pictures of you that you would rather not keep? Well I have so many of those photos, my sisters have tried to teach the act of posing for nice photos but I can’t quite seem to master that act .The ones above have been carefully selected of my family and friends.
Well yesterday we attended a beautiful wedding and took loads of photos, when we got back as I went through the photos, there were many that didn’t quite capture my good bits😃. Well thank God for technology and the ability to delete those unattractive photos. How unusual (at least for most people) to have those unattractive photos framed and put on our mantelpiece. Most of us will not do that and will protest if someone were to hang a photo of us that were unattractive.
Well in life we have to take that same approach to some unkind words, unattractive words, labels that have been put on us by people in our lives and society as a whole.
We have to learn to delete some of those images, unfortunately most of us have framed some of these negative images and given it such prominence in our lives, we have framed and hang those photos on our mental wall.
Well as I was deleting some physical photos yesterday, I thought how wonderful it would be if we can delete some mental photos, you see we choose to display the photos that flatter us( well mostly) but when it comes to mental images we do the opposite and this hinder us from pursuing our gifting and dreams.
Think about it, what picture would you rather hang on the wall or post on your Facebook wall? The unattractive, harsh, unkind, untrue image or the positive, beautiful, well captured image of you?
You can’t control how someone captures you, sometimes it is the angle they take it from, sometimes it is how we stand or what we are doing when we get captured.
However we can choose which photos we want to frame and hang on our wall.
Our minds are the biggest and the most prominent walls in our lives, let us be very selective in the photos/images we hang on our mental wall.
For your consideration
