Sometimes I can be frightened by my own shadow. Shadows are dark, but like fear, there really isn't anything to be afraid of. So I started speaking some real truth into my own life. I don't know why people think the bible isn't relevent, or why it's not true... Get a life people, A REAL LIFE! and follow Him, it's the BEST THAT'S EVER BEEN (and it's nothing compared to heaven!)!
My friend Netta says she talks to herself, and I've been talking to myself ALL day! So here are a few of the things I've been saying to myself!
I'm not afraid!
Josh 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
It's all good!
Phil 4:8-9 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
I can do it!
Phil 4:13 I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength
I don't need to think I'm strong, He is strong in me
2 Cor 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
I am AWESOME!
Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Matthew 6:25-34 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[e]?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
