It only occurred to me a few years back that minimalism was more than just a practice I could apply to my physical world. Purging my mind of the negative thoughts that fueled low self-esteem could bring me the same sort of peace and calm I felt when decluttering my space.
As a creative I can be very critical of my work. Feeling unsure about whether I am truly an artist. Does what I do really matter? How do I rid myself of a way of thinking I've lived with for as long as I can remember? Proverbs 18:21 tells us death and life are in the power of the tongue (CSB translation) so this cleaning house of the soul will need to begin with the words I hear and say. When I remember where my creativity comes from and who authors my identity, the truth becomes clear. I am a piece of the Master... I'm His masterpiece.
God knows the truth about who you are. He speaks only words of love over you. Read His love story. Speak the words out over yourself. Start to believe His truth and begin to live!
