“I believed, and so I spoke”2 Cor 4:13
Don’t always say what you think
I often talk to myself. I used to be embarrassed about it whenever people would catch me on but now I don’t really care. I just tell them that it is the best conversation that I get! The Word says that we have creative power in our words - they have power over us for good or bad. Often whenever my feelings are leading me to a negative place I find myself speaking out all kinds of negativity and nonsense. When was the last time you played out an argument that you would have with someone?
God has often challenged me that I need to speak what He believes about me, and others, and not to speak what is based on my feelings at the time. If I truly believe that God is good then I need to speak it out. I may not feel like it but the creative power of my truth & faith filled words is enough to lift my mood and focus me back to a place of life & peace.
Resist the power to give into your feelings and say just what you think. That may not be helpful. If you believe that God is good, loving & kind then say so. Say it out loud. Make sure you can hear it. It will change your day
