Living Beyond Your Feelings (Day 1)

Loving this post by Miss ARO.

I totally agree that we reinforce our feelings by speaking about them often. The same goes for our attitudes. I believe the more we speak about how we will act in certain situations, the more likely we will act as we have spoken.

Enjoy.

Today I started reading the book ‘ Living Beyond Your Feelings’ by Joyce Meyer and thought to myself. I think more people need to understand this. So everyday until I’m done reading I will post a valuable point from the chapter I have read.
I hope this blesses you!!!
Enjoy!!!

Quote taken from the introduction.
“If I wake up feeling energetic and excited about the day, I rarely announce it to everyone I come in contact with; however, if I feel tired and discouraged, I want to tell everyone. It has taken me years to learn that talking about how I feel increases the intensity of those feelings.”

It would appear from this statement, that the more we emphasize our feelings, the more they become our reality.
Instead of talking about our negative feelings. Lets begin to talk about the positive ones so that they will increase.

So next…

Day 7: The Lord is my light

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalms 27:1

I wanted to share this verse today as it is one of my favorite passages to read. It is a reminder whenever I am afraid, undecided, weak, and more. God is my light, and He is my strength. Amen.

Please enjoy the song below by the young and talented Walls Group.

Much love.

Day 6: What’s on your mind?

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any virtue and if there is anything worthy of praise—dwell on these things.

Philippians 4:8

Much love.

Day 5: Rest in the Lord

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him…

Ps 37:7

It is difficult to enjoy the rest that God daily provides us when we become preoccupied with worrying, complaining, judging others, and the like. I encourage you to rest in the Lord today. Amen.

Much love.

Day 4: A Grateful Heart

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Gratefulness is one of the best ways to achieve a merry heart and, as we well know, a merry heart does wonders (Proverbs 17:22). In a day and time when complaining has almost become second nature, we must remember to give thanks even for the little things.

Much love.

Day 3: The Good

for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Philippians 2:13

There are many nice people in the world today. That is a good thing. However, many times, people are nice because they expect something in return or because they need to look good. This is only human nature. Continue reading Day 3: The Good

Day 2: Burnout

My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psalms‬ ‭73‬:‭26‬

In our fast-paced culture it is easy to experience burnout, especially when you are giving your best and are not getting the desired outcomes. Thinking of this brings to mind a familiar passage:
