Being Good to Yourself

There are so many ways that I can be good to myself but the first way is to allow myself to be led by the Holy Spirit. When I do this I have peace, joy, truth and love. I also don’t get myself into situations or thought patterns that are negative.

When I’m at peace, outside enjoying the weather, connecting with other Christians, walking, eating well, meditating on the Word of God, writing, sketching, listening to music and resting I am also being good to myself. 

So today, I invite you to be good to yourself. 

Peace & blessings,

Barbara J Couch, MDiv.


Today’s Meditation

“Enter His gates with a song of thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, bless and praise His name.”
PSALM 100:4 (AMP)

Dear Abba,

Thank You Abba for my blessings and the many times You held me in Your arms bringing me through. Thank You for Your love, faithfulness, abundant grace and mercy.

From Your daughter who is the most joyful when she is led by You. Your love has brought me a long way, thank You Abba, I love You,

Barbara J Couch, MDiv.

Today’s Meditation

For by the grace [of God] given to me I say to everyone of you not to think more highly of himself [and of his importance and ability] than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has apportioned to each a degree of faith [and a purpose designed for service].



Often in this world we live in it can become difficult to practice “sound judgement”. We get distracted or do things that prevent us from behaving and thinking in Kingdom ways.

If you get caught up in your day to day life, don’t leave home without the Lord on your mind and in your heart. Then you will remember to live by faith and to operate in the purpose in which you were designed.
Blessing & Peace,
Barbara J Couch, MDiv.
