Psalm 90:14 Satisfy us in the morning

Psalm 90:14
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
 
This morning pray, “Lord, I am waiting for You to direct me.” While you honor the Lord by listening for His response, you may hear Him speak something specific to you right away. It may seem as though He inscribes direction in your spirit for the day. The devil may tell you that it wasn’t God who spoke to you. While you are waiting to hear from God, Satan may tell you that you are wasting your time.
 
It is important to know the truth of God’s Word so that the direction God sows in your heart will not be snatched away from you through doubt. God may not lay out a blueprint for your day, but He will direct your path, if you acknowledge Him in all of your ways.                    (See Proverbs 3:6).

Depression is a sign of weakness

Depression is a sign of weakness. It means that there is a “Weakness” in your normal way of coping and thinking that is leading to behaviors that are not helpful to you. The good news there is help and people who can help you through this. IGBATTMHO



As You Think

Proverbs 23:7

For As He Thinketh In His Heart, So Is He

 

Our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected. Our behavior is controlled by the words that we have inside of us, whether they are words of life or words of death. So think about who is giving you those thoughts you are having. The spiritual battle we all face is won or lost by the words we allow to rule in our thoughts. Our thoughts will either draw us closer to the Lord Jesus Christ or further away.

 

We think an average of seven thoughts a second. Based on those figures, in a years’ time, we would have thought about 219,971,200 thoughts. If you multiply that figure by 70 (70 years) you get fifteen billion, forty million, twelve thousand and eight hundred thoughts. Who is in control of those thoughts? God or the Devil? Are the thoughts in your mind bringing you victory or defeat?

 

The mind is the control tower, it sends orders to the rest of your members and causes them to submit. That is why the devil puts up such a fight for control of your mind. You see, once his thoughts are in your mind he is in control and God is out of control. The mind is the foundation of your success and victory. So you have to know how to stay God conscience and to fortify it. So don’t just put any kind of thought in your mind. Remember, every thought you think affects you on an eternal basis. So fleece your thoughts with The Word of God. Guard your thoughts at all times.

Don’t let anything take the place of the Lord in your mind.

 

2 Corinthians 10: 4-5

For The Weapons Of Our Warfare Are Not Carnal, But Mighty Through God To The Pulling Down Of Strong Holds;) Casting Down Imaginations, And Every High Thing That Exalteth Itself Against The Knowledge Of God, And Bringing Into Captivity Every Thought To The Obedience Of Christ

 

Your mind has been called full time into the Gospel of Jesus Christ you are not to be part-time in the gospel. Your quality of thinking should coincide with God’s character and His character never wavers. In short, your thinking should be based on The Word of God at all times. You should acknowledge God in all aspects of your life to include your thoughts. (IGABTTMHO All Rights Reserved)

 

 

 

 



STAY MOTIVATED

The last couple of days have been a battle against staying in a depressive state.  This is a struggle that I’ve talked about often.  For me to get myself back on track I have to constantly feed my mind positive thoughts and I have to get my body moving.  If I do not do this then I can run the risk of being down for days.  What do I mean by moving?  Well, all the activities I feel like I don’t have the energy for I make an effort to still get to Zumba class or make my entrepreneur meeting.  If I go down I am more likely to stay down so movement becomes key.  What do I mean by feeding my mind positive thoughts.  For instance, I will tell myself get up and make class, you can do it, it’s okay baby girl, remember you are loved, you’ve come so far let’s go further, God got your back, etc.  This helps me stay motivated instead of defeated.  This helps me feel like I’ve accomplished my day to day task instead of feel like I’m letting everyone and everything down.  It’s hard work, but I remind myself I am up for the challenge.  

Remember when you feel yourself going down to depression it may take some hard, hard work, but you can do small things to keep yourself reminded how valuable you are and keep yourself moving. This does not replace taking your medicine, but an addition.  Stay motivated.  Be blessed!

MUMBLES AND MURMURS

Hebrews 13:5-6 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”
 
Sometimes it seems the whole world is complaining. There is so much grumbling and murmuring and so little gratitude and appreciation. People complain about their job and their boss when they should be thankful to have regular work and appreciate the fact they are not living in a shelter for homeless or standing in a soup line. Many people would be thrilled to have that job, despite its imperfections. They would be more than willing to put up with a not so perfect boss in order to have a regular income, live in their own home, and cook their own food.
 
Maybe you need a better paying job or perhaps you have a boss who treats you unfairly. That is unfortunate, but the way out is not through complaining. Give God thanks for every blessing He has given you.
