How Do You Talk To Yourself?

How Do You Talk To Yourself? Keys to victorious faith. Inspirational BlogHow do you talk to yourself?

Do you use the words “can’t”, “won’t”, “don’t need to”, “why try?”  Many people do.

Do you find that what you say to yourself turns out to be true? Why is this?

You see your brain is like a computer that you feed each day. It
doesn’t always know what’s real or not unless you tell it.

Example: If someone you love has hurt you, you may tell yourself that all people who love you will probably hurt you too.

Your brain just files this information for reference, its data, little zeroes and ones and no column that asks “true or not true?” Now your brain thinks, based on what you told it, that everyone you’ll ever love will hurt you.

How do you think you will respond the next time you get hurt?

Right!!

Now, what if we instead told our brain:

“Okay this person ripped my heart out – but that’s only one person.
I’m lovable and have many loving people in my life who are not out to hurt me. I know that the right people are coming into my life all the time. If someone hurts me, I will forgive them and bless them on their way.”

Words can be empowering.

I can
I love to
I want to
I will
I must
I am
We can reach a new level of living, if we feed ourselves empowering words and practice saying them until they become a habit.

I know first hand that it takes time.

And I also know that it’s worth it.

Use Empowering Words When You Talk to Yourself
{Whether you are speaking out loud or silently}

Try it for a week.

Catch yourself saying, “I can’t”, when you don’t really mean it and instead try, “I can”, and see how you think and feel about yourself.

Remember, the words you use to empower yourself will have a lasting effect, only if you practice them and they become a habit {an acquired behavior pattern regularly followed
until it has become almost involuntary}.

They say it takes at least 28 days to develop a habit. After a week, you will see that it becomes easier. It’s a mindset and you can control your thoughts. Be proactive and not reactive – give yourself some good words.

{From Motivating Moments}

Is this biblical you ask? They Word of God says,As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7. What you think about yourself and how  you talk about yourself is exactly who you will become – think about it! God made you wonderfully and fearfully {Psalm 139:14}! You deserve to talk about yourself as God would talk about you, and He would only talk good things about you! He made you because He loves you!

A Christmas Gift for You!

A Christmas Gift For You.

One of the biggest problems I see people face is not thinking well of themselves. And when it comes to loving oneself sometimes that is even harder. However, God wants us to love ourselves and the Word of God tells us it is His desire for us to love ourselves.

Matthew 19:19 tells us to love our neighbors AS ourselves. Now if we are to love them AS we love ourselves then God must want us to love ourselves. He must want us to think highly of ourselves. (Do not confuse thinking highly with being proud, arrogant, or haughty) God wants us to love things about us, however most  focus on what we do not like about ourselves.

We do not like our hair, or our hips, or our nose, and we fixate our minds on what we do not like; instead of looking inside as our Father does and focus on the real us, not the outside shell we live in, but our inside self – who we really are!

The Bible talks about love and walking in love and this applies to us; not just to others. As we learn to walk in love with others we will feel better about ourselves too. We must learn to accept who we are. And the parts we don’t like; we give them over to God and allow Him to lead us and perfect in us what we cannot.

The more time we spend with God and realize His love for us, the more we will spread that love to others and even to ourselves.

As a gift to yourself this Christmas why not focus on how great you really are. Not what you look like but who you really are. Focus on how much your Heavenly Father loves you. Focus on how much others love you.

God wants you to remove all of the thoughts you have about yourself which do not line up with His Word. You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14)!

You are the best present you can give to your Father in Heaven, you are the best present you can give to someone else, and you ARE the best present you can give yourself this Christmas Season!
