Recognize & Retaliate.

June 28, 2012

I am not good enough.

I am not pretty enough.

I wish I had less freckles.

I am not tall enough.

I am too tall.

I am not strong enough.

I wish I had red hair.

I don’t like my body type.

I am not talented enough.

I am not adventurous enough.

I haven’t made a difference in anyone’s life because I am young.

I am too fat.

I am too scared to follow my dreams.

I am a failure.

Recognize any of these? Maybe you recognize a lot of them.

If you do, I want you to write it down on a piece of paper. Write: My thought: ________

Now, I want you to go through God’s 66 love letters to you and see what He says about that in His book.

He addresses every single topic in some form or manner so don’t give up. If you need help, consult google. He is a know-it-all.

Once you find what God says, I want you to write that under your thought. Write: The truth: _____________.

So you now have My thought: ________________
The truth: __________________

Do you see how different those are? Do you see what you’ve been willingly feeding yourself?

Put it on your mirror. Put it in your wallet. Put it in your car. Put it beside your computer.

Wherever you will see it, place it there.

Friends, we MUST stop feeding our minds with false statements. We must stop believing the lies that Satan tries so desperately to make us believe about ourselves. We must stop drinking from the contaminated well and fill ourselves with the living water, the truth.

Slowly but surely, your mind will change the way you see yourself in that particular way. Keep God’s truth at the forefront of your mind. Write it on the tablet of your heart.

This is the first step and we must take action.

John 8:32 says “Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”

Claim His truth and replace those lies so you won’t be deceived any longer.

You. Are. Perfect. In. his. Eyes.

…write that down! It is the TRUTH!

It is time to recognize and retaliate. Recognize Satan’s lies and retaliate with the truth! Our God never loses, ever.

#Victorious. Can I get an Amen??!

Short and sweet— whatcha been doing this morning? Have you developed a healthy routine when your mind wakes up and your feet hit the floor that will ensure a peaceful and productive rest of your day? I have always known how important it is to start your day in ways that provide energy, strength, and focus for the hours that follow…but it felt so difficult. It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

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...
