You Are More Than Your Mistakes

Blessings All You Wonderful People!

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control] – 2 Timothy 1:7 (AMP)

Can I share something with you? I mean really be honest? Listen very carefully: you are more than your mistakes!

You may have messed up more times than you can count, we all have. But if the only smart decision you ever made was to give your life to the Lord, you are doing great!

You were smart enough to make such a life-changing decision. Now, I want you to focus–feed your faith by focusing on what is good and not the bad. Take time to look at and celebrate what you’ve done right. Don’t just focus on how you’ve stumbled. Let joy rise in your heart. Learning to be who God called you to be is a lifelong process. Be encouraged. You are still evolving, growing and learning.

Say this with me…

I gave my life to the LORD and that makes me one smart person!

I am forgiven for every wrong decision I’ve made.

I receive God’s love, His mercy and His grace.

I am moving forward and I am made stronger and wiser from every wrong decision.

God is increasing me in wisdom and in stature.

I am increasing in favor with God and with man.

I declare and decree I have soundness of mind and the ability to make sound decisions, not fear-based, emotional, or impulsive decisions. But sound decisions that please God.

I’m not stupid! I’m not crazy! I’m not an underachiever!

I’m an overcomer through Jesus Christ!

I love God’s word and I declare I walk in His wisdom and His grace! Glory to God!

Blessings & Love from my heart to yours,

Praise the Lord All You Joyful People

The word of the day is joy. Joy is emotional stability that overcomes adversity in life. It is a both a comfort and shield, but more important: it is our strength.

Don’t be sad because the JOY you have in the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10 (GW)

You make the path of life known to me. Complete JOY is in your presence. Pleasures are by your side forever Psalms 16:11, (GW)

You a child of the Most High God. An heir(ess) to His love, protection and of course, to His strength. Make these declarations over your life:

I declare that I have the joy of the Lord
I declare that I have gladness in my heart
I declare that I rejoice in the Lord
I declare that I have the peace of God
I declare that my life is filled with all the promises of God
I declare that I walk by faith
I declare that I am prosperous and successful
I declare that the favor of God is working in my life
I declare increase in my life
I declare that I invest in God’s word for my life
I declare that I am blessed and protected by the Lord

And I thank you Lord, for answering my prayer!

Have a joyful day, from my heart to yours!

A – Assurance: And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. Isaiah 32:17

I – Integrity:  So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands. Psalms 78:72

T – Truth: God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4: 24
