Hello friend. Over the next few months I am going to let you in on a little secret. I have several affirmations that I speak over my life daily. It helps me renew my mind, center my heart, and reach my destiny. These are things I believe God wants for me.
Do you know God has bigger dreams for your life than you do?
Do you know that your self-talk and the thoughts you dwell on determine the direction of your life? It’s true.
Psalm 91 says, “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.” There’s an innate promise in there. Dwelling on the Most High is the key. I don’t know about you, but I can’t just rangle my thoughts in UNLESS I have something good and noteworthy to think about.
We don’t usually just get rid of thoughts. We replace them. #faithpearls
So, over the next few months I want to invite you into this thing called “Affirmations” with me. You can make up your own. In fact, I encourage you to do so. Or you can borrow mine and use them for yourself. Or you can use mine to jump off on your own and modify them to make them just right for your specific situation. Whatever you choose, I challenge you to start speaking these affirmations out loud. It makes a difference when we declare truth into the atmosphere. Be bold and speak them loudly and clearly. Read them with intention and focus. Don’t let your mind drift when you are speaking them. Think about them as you read them aloud.
On top of these affirmations I’ll be passing on to you, don’t forget about the “Meditations for” series coming out through music channels. I have already released “Meditations for Peace.” It is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc. The next one in the cue is Meditations for Hope. It has a whole different feel with a much more hopeful, musical soundscape. To be honest, I’m running a little behind on its release because of the flu and sinus infection this month. But look for that in a few weeks. I’ll let you know when that new Scripture meditation becomes available.
Here’s your affirmation this week:
“I reject comparison and refuse to envy others' dreams, gifts, and opportunities. Instead I celebrate their wins and successes, and I stay firmly secure in who I am in Christ. I enjoy letting the world experience “my name here" in all the ways God handcrafted me to be.”
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (NASB)
Have a great week!
