Have you ever wondered why sometimes you may remember, in great detail, the negative things someone says or does?
Here’s the deal, we may linger over specifics and hold on to the words someone said for hours or even days. As we continue this pattern of holding on to these thoughts, it begins to manifest as part of our “personality” – we may even begin to be on the pessimistic (wink, wink) negative side.
On today’s episode, we discuss how to move past a negative outlook to a more positive perspective. I share three steps that will help you make a brain shift from a negative mindset to one that is empowered by Christ.
It saddens me to hear about women feeling haunted by the labels others put on them. I encountered a woman this week that shared a bit of her situation. She was very honest and told me that she feels insecure. She’s hitting 40 and feels she’s lost her identity and her voice.
She disclosed that she shared some of her ideas and dreams with friends and family, but they simply discourage her. They say things like, “I’m not sure that’s a good idea. I mean, you don’t have the experience to pull something off like that.” OR “You really should stop dreaming. You’re not that young (hint: you’re old). Stick to the plan and you’ll be fine.”
I was once asked if I believed that God loves me. My answer, “Yes, I believe God loves me.” I believed His Word but in my heart something was missing… there was uncertainty. I was lacking confidence in His love.
What does it mean to believe and to have faith?
If you’ve ever struggled with this topic, then today’s episode is for you. And if you’ve been walking with Father for years, this may be a good refresher on basic steps you need to keep in mind to stay on track.
