Scripture

For what a man thinks, he is.

Proverbs 23:7

Reflection

There’s a saying that “what you think about you bring about.” Our thoughts and speech are powerful. We can either speak and think of a prosperous future or a bleak existence. We can look around us and see nothing but darkness, giving credit to the enemy, and speak that as our reality, or we can see the penetrating light and declare God’s dominion over all. Our words and thoughts are energy that comes from within. What type of energy do you want to put out there?

I’m inspired by the comforting feeling that God always has me, even when I feel astray, lost, or alone. I would rather focus on goodness, positivity, and greatness. I’m learning to rebuke the lies the enemy whispers and shouts at me and counter them with words of Truth. The enemy wants me and you to meditate on lies, take them in, believe them to be true, and reject God’s Truth. The enemy wants us to think less of ourselves, to see ourselves as worthless, rather than see ourselves as God designed and sees us.

I’m learning to focus more on what God says about me than what others say to and about me. I strongly encourage you to do the same. Don’t you dare allow your mind to meditate on lies and don’t you dare speak those lies! Think and speak the Truth that God speaks over you and others.

Prayer

Father I pray for clear, positive, loving thoughts about myself and others. Let me reject the negativity, fear, and darkness, and embrace the Light of Your Truth. Remind me to always speak Your Truth anytime a lie surfaces with a plan of attack. Help me to shut down and destroy that lie. The words I speak will either heal or harm, serve Your purpose or the enemy’s. I want to choose You every time. Help me Father. Help me to discern and then take action through Your guidance. I come to You ready to put on Your armor, to share the fruits of the Spirit, using my words to build and strengthen Your Kingdom.

And with that family, I pray that you are blessed, that you see and embrace your blessings, and that you are a blessing to others.

Love,

Natasha

Breaking Bread for 10.30.19

Scripture

For what a man thinks, he is.

Proverbs 23:7

Reflection

There’s a saying that, “what you think about you bring about”. Our thoughts and speech are powerful. We can either speak and think of a prosperous future or a bleak existence. Our words and thoughts are energy that come from within. What type of energy do you want to put out there?

I’m about to board an airplane to head home to California, and I’m mindful of my thoughts, as it’s easy to fear the what-ifs. The anxiety of my ER visit last week wants to jump in and stir things up inside of me. But I’m inspired by the comforting feeling that God always has me even when I feel astray, lost, or alone.

I rather focus on the goodness, positivity, and greatness. I am more than fine and okay. I will have a safe and relaxing flight to and from California. I will have an amazing time with family and friends. All is well. All will be well.

Happy birthday shout outs to Debra Collins and Shante Broadus.

Prayer

Father I pray for clear, positive, loving thoughts about myself and others. Let me be rid of negativity, fear, and darkness.

Love,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.16.19

Scripture

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Proverbs 23:7 NKJV

Reflection

There’s a saying attributed to Bob Proctor, that, “what you think about you bring about”.

Our thoughts and speech are powerful. We can either speak and think of a prosperous future or a bleak existence. Our words and thoughts are energy that come from within.

What type of energy do you want to put out there and see manifest?

Do the words and thoughts glorify God and bring you closer to Him? If not, you may want to reconsider them and choose instead to blot them right out of your space. Don’t expend energy on them. Don’t invest them into any situation or person. Simply let them go to fade away, or shut them down like a swift slamming of a door. Whatever you do, don’t give them your energy or they will grow in power and strength—leaving you to speak and act in a way that does everything but glorify God.

By giving negative thoughts energy, you drain yourself of your reserves. Speaking those thoughts then blocks positive energy from coming in to replenish the reserves and provide you with excess. You’re killing yourself and don’t even know it. Stop it!

Prayer

Father I pray for clear, positive, loving thoughts about myself and others. Let me be rid of negativity, fear, and darkness. Let me think and speak words that generate positive energy, so that I may always glorify and honor You.

As a believer of Your Word and Your son, Jesus Christ, I humbly pray for the discernment, strength, and courage to properly channel my thoughts and speech to be in alignment with You. Amen.

Love,

Natasha

Keep the Right Things in Your Life

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…”
(Proverbs 23:7, NKJV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
God created us as visual beings. It’s so important that we create the right image in our minds because the way we see ourselves is what we move toward. Visualization is simply seeing yourself the way you want to be. It’s creating a picture in your mind of accomplishing your goals, overcoming your obstacles, and fulfilling your God-given destiny. Our imagination is extremely powerful. The way we see ourselves in these pictures that we create, over time, will not only drop down into our spirit, but if we continue to dwell on them, they get into our subconscious mind. Once something is in the subconscious, it’s just like gravity; it pulls us toward it. All these internal forces are released, and more often than not, we become just like we’ve imagined.

If you’ll create a picture in your imagination of something you want, a dream coming to pass, a business succeeding, a picture of yourself healthy and whole; if you’ll keep that image in front of you, that’s what you’ll move toward. If you keep the Word of God in front of you, that’s what will come forth out of you. Keep the right things in your mind and the right things in your life!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for creating me in Your image. Thank You for my imagination and for the ability to change my life by meditating on Your Word. Help me to keep Your truth before me always so I can walk and live in the path You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
