A revolution!


Yes, I have been harping about positive thinking, and being grateful for what you have in life for a while now.  And the more blogs I read, the more I am aware of what is going on in social media, the more I am becoming convinced that finally we have cottoned on (or perhaps still in the process of…) that we cannot talk ugly, think ugly and be ugly towards ourselves and others if we want to live healthy, wholesome and successful lives.  And I think this change in mindset is absolutely crucial to living a successful life.

And for the most part, the lies we tells ourselves are just that – lies.  We need to believe the wonderful truth of God’s word to know the truth about who we are.

A revolution is happening! In the hearts and minds of people who truly want to be effective in following Christ!

A revolution that is changing the way we think about ourselves, based on the Word of God.

Psalm 139:14

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

And today, why not go over to Unveiled Wife, who has shared an amazing insight I know we all can learn – that we all need to learn.

Layla kindly responded by pointing out that all of our comments, the things we are speaking to ourselves were all negative.  With conversations like that we set ourselves up for feeling incapable and worthless.  Then she went on to explain how we self-fulfill what we speak.  She shared personal testimonies of her battle with depression and weight issues starting with the conversations she had with herself.

Amidst her unveiling, her eyes got watery as she insisted that we change what we say, that our words matter and are powerful.  She spoke words of life for us to hear and receive.  As she looked around the room she made eye contact with each of us and repeated three times:

You’re enough.  You’re enough.  You’re enough.

We need to change the tone of our conversations with ourselves, we need to be saying positive things like:

I’m capable…

I know who I am…

I choose to be present…

Be positive…

I can do this…

Make a decision today that whether you believe it or not, or whether you feel like it or not, you will change how you talk to yourself, and you will change what you say to yourself.

And remember, that sometimes a soul shift takes place by taking that first step – like a small drop hitting water, there is a ripple affect that will start small, and grow to touch every other area of your life.  You may not feel it, but at least start to think it, and then start to believe it – that is the step in the right direction.

ripple effect is a situation where, like the ever expanding ripples across water when an object is dropped into it, an effect from an initial state can be followed outwards incrementally.
