Keep the truth, chuck the trash.

It’s going to come– the distractions will do their best to deter you. The negative Nancy’s will say their piece. Instagram will convince you you’re behind the trend or the timeline.

And so, you have to be ready. You are not helpless when it comes to your thoughts. You don’t get to say that the snowball, lack of focus or pessimistic attitude was anyone else’s fault today.

Why? Because you’re empowered to control what you think about!!! Your Heavenly Father has more than equipped you to discern what is truth and what is trash, the question is, what will you feed?

Our brain naturally caters to our perspective and desires, often using fear as a crutch and deceiving ourselves. Our innate response is to give into emotion and ride the rollercoaster! It requires digging in, seeking Jesus, disciplining yourself and being intentional if you want to change your focus.

Today is going to be a GREAT day, no matter what! Arrest the little minions that plant any other thoughts & get on with your day!

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” -Romans 12:2

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

Speak them out loud.
Speak them out loud.

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
