Good afternoon! Happy Friday to you all! I pray that God continues to keep you all safe.
TFTD: Check your self talk
Proverbs 23:7a (NKJV)
7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
Raise your hand if you talk to yourself? If you are honest then your hand should be raised. I had to stop typing in order to raise my own hand (giggling). Now some of us may have audible conversations with ourselves, where I would venture out to say that majority of us have subconscious conversations with our selves. The subconscious is the unconscious part of the mind where mental activity is not directly perceived by the consciousness. This is the area from which memories, feelings, or thoughts can influence behavior without realizing it. This is the conversation that could take place while an audible conversation is actually taking place.
For example, you could be having a conversation with a person who you disagree with and in your subconscious you are telling this person off, while in reality you aren’t doing this. But if you listen to your subconscious long enough you could end up doing something out of character. That’s why it’s important to check your self talk! The bible tells us that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. If you think you are a loser then you will conduct yourself as a loser. If you think you will never succeed then you will never succeed. If you think you are a failure then you will consistently fail all because of your negative self talk.
Check your self talk. What have you said about yourself today? Have you thought you were fat, dumb, loud, angry, insignificant, or did you think you were brilliant, beautiful, handsome, or exciting? If your self talk is negative then you will begin manifesting the characteristics of a negative person. You will probably be your biggest critic and it’s important to start becoming your biggest fan. It doesn’t mean to become arrogant or conceited, but it is important to lift yourself up. The world will do a great job of tearing you down and it’s important that you can speak a word of encouragement over your mind, body and soul.
It’s a new season and a new day and it’s important to speak life into who you desire to become. Take time out of each day and check your self talk. Remember your thoughts become actions and your actions will affect who you will ultimately become.
Have a blessed day you wonderful people! Thank you for your continued support of this blog! God bless!
