Be Careful What You Say!

"Never say anything about yourself you do not want to come true”. ~ Brian Tracy

Proverbs 18:21 says, words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit—you choose. ~ The Message Bible

This is really great advice from Brian Tracy and from scripture out of the Bible. If you become aware of the things you constantly say about yourself you might just uncover something valuable. You might just become aware of your self limiting beliefs that are unconsciously holding you back from really accomplishing great things in your life.

If you can become consciously aware of what you say and think about yourself on a consistent basis you will begin to see why it is that you are where you are and why you're doing what you're doing. If you're in a great rewarding place then you have positive self talk and you say and think great things about yourself. But if you're not where you want to be then you need to do two things.

First - Become aware of your self talk. Do you call yourself names? Do you put yourself down?

Second - Change it from negative to positive. If you don't know what to say at first then start by saying affirmations.

Try it this weekend, only positive you'll be able to move forward and make progress in your life. Take care!

Encouragement for this Week

I pray you had an awesome weekend with family and friends. I wanted to share with you an excerpt from my new women's devotional we will include in a care package to women who contact my organization for services. It is my prayer it blesses you. We have included below our upcoming events. So, please mark your calendars and come out and join us.

"Don't Give Up!"

Psalm 112:7

"They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them."

Don't give up. This is your focus this week. It's a matter of sheer determination and settling your mind in what you believe concerning the truth in God's Word. That way when you hear bad news this week, you will remain steadfast because your heart and mind are set; the decision has been made. This week scripture focus is to encourage you to "confidentially trust the Lord to care for you". This means you believe God and agree to follow where He leads even when you don't understand what it's all about or why you are headed in the direction you are going. Embrace the scripture for this week and don't give up no matter what.

Pray this Prayer: Lord, thank you for my life today. Thank you for causing me to serve you with my whole heart. I choose to build myself up today that I will not waver. I praise you because I will not stray today but will be steadfast and immovable! Even in the midst of adversity, I will not be moved. I bless you because I am the head and not the tail. I am going over and not under. I am more than a conqueror! Victory belongs to me. Therefore, I will not give up. In Jesus Name Amen!
