Do you have an empowering thought nugget that blessed you in 2019 to share for 2020?
My Empowering Nugget was THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT. Every thought that hits your mind you do not have to accept. You can create a BRAINGATE, a filter to screen out ugly, depressing, crazy thoughts. For some reason most mornings, I am hit with thoughts about past mistakes, or how some future plan will backfire. Sometimes a thought would hit me about how a loved one should not have died if only they had eaten right, received the right medicine, etc. and then I used to ponder that. No more.
Nowadays I am fully loaded, armed with positive phrases and Bible verses. If a mistake wants to weigh on me my retort:
“Nobody is perfect but Jesus.”
“The Bible says I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Ps.139:14)
When I can’t remember something, and a little demonic thought says: “Aha! You are going into dementia.”
I ram that thought out with “the Bible says God has not given me the spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind.” (2Tim1:7)
“My mind is sound. Back up devil.”
Now there are times someone has seen me talking to myself, And I do that sometimes. I am in warfare. Self-talk is warrior language. And that is how you win.
