May the wisdom of the Holy Spirit give you right words to speak, right actions to take, and the courage to stand strong. You are equipped, you have the awesome power of God abiding in you. Be still for 10 seconds and tap into His power, be encouraged by His presence, His Word, His anointing. Be His feet, hands and light today. Be healed in mind and body by His stripes. Prosper in every area of you spirit, soul and body as you read God’s living and active word today. Listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying. Be strong and courageous as you walk renewed, encouraged, fortified in Him and for His glory. AMEN 🌺 Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Remember we are unable to be perfect and we were not created to be self-sufficient. Listen to your self chatter and eliminate ALL negative statements. Read what God has to say about you “in Him”. You are His beloved, Jesus laid down His life for you because of His love for you. Take an honest inventory of your thought life. You are responsible for how you feel, think and act. The way we respond to hurtful words matters greatly. Take back control of any stinking thinking. God’s word says that we are to treat others and we desire to be treated. Treat others with kindness, mercy and grace, for they know not what they do. Hurting people, unhappy people, negative people have trauma that they need to deal with. It is NOT our responsibility to do more than just LOVE them as they are. Show love and support, but do NOT take ownership of their problems. FOCUS on your thoughts, feelings and responses in life.

When you focus on the GOOD, it is easy to let go of anger, resentment, fear, anxiety, confusion and give it ALL to God. Look at life through the eyes of Jesus and give thanks for everything, all the time. Release others by forgiving them and you will have taken the positive step to release your body, brain and mind from being condemned by you. Speak out loud 54321 “I am excited to be a child of God”. Shift your FOCUS and continue to make POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS that are the TRUTH. “I am a child of God and I am loved unconditionally.” Say it and believe the truth. “I am okay with who God says I am. Even if someone rejects me, I know that God will never reject or forsake me.” Learn about what you like and dislike. Establish healthy boundaries and avoid toxic people with grace. Respect who you are “in Christ”. Acknowledge that you were saved for such a time as this to reflect Christ in you, His hope for glory.
Make good decisions by asking the Holy Spirit to help you with the right words to speak. Stand strong in your BELIEF in God and do NOT compromise to please or appease anyone. Get to the point of enjoying time alone with yourself and with God. In your relationships, say how you feel and what you need. Know that you are not responsible for their reaction to the truth. Walk in the peace and confidence in the Lord. You have POWER and AUTHORITY over Satan’s plans and false accusations. REMEMBER that Jesus is interceding for you. Even if you fail, your are NOT a failure in His eyes. Regardless of the circumstance, express your thanksgiving for the FREEDOM you have as a child of God. Only God can change people, and it is up to those that are in pain to seek God with all their hearts, minds and strength. Your opinions are as important as anyone else, STOP, PAUSE and CONNECT with the Spirit of God in you, then speak the words you were given in every circumstance. Choose to love yourself and make the word of God your guide for making decisions on how to respond to tragedy, trials and stressful situations. Be Who God Created
