If you haven’t read the introduction to this series, you can check it out here. The whole idea to this series is to recognize anything that can be toxic or harmful to our spirit in any way and free ourselves to live a better life. The first thing we are going to deal with is our thought life. Our thoughts matter so much. The thought, either negative or positive, really does count because what you think determines what you become. This is Day 1 to our series Soul Detox, Lets dig a little deeper.
God’s word gives us very important instructions that we must take seriously. He instructed us to speak life-giving words to others every chance we get. (1 Thessalonians 5:11) Anytime you think something positive about someone, TELL THEM! We should make a habit of living by this rule, so it becomes a habit to speak positive during situations that test our faith. Not only should we speak life-giving words to others, but we should speak them over our circumstances and ourselves.
David Castillo Dominici
I know for me at times I can discourage myself from doing things God has called me to do, KNOWING HE called me to do it, I still look at my circumstances around me, instead of just trusting God (Proverbs 3:5). Other times I talk negatively about my body, speaking all kinds of negative things about myself, knowing that God Made me Beautiful (Psalms 139:14)! I want to make, speaking positive ALL THE TIME a habitat for myself and others I come in contact with. Even when I was pregnant with my daughter, I was the happiest person on the planet, until someone come up to me and say ALL kinds of crazy things about my belly, the amount of kids I have, even questioning my sanity and so on.
I’ve learned during that journey to encourage those around me. The toxic words we speak to ourselves can be the most dangerous. These toxic words can cripple our lives and rob us of our joy, before we even start our day. Let’s Change that, with God’s help we can do ALL THINGS (Philippians 4:13)!
Do you find that you speak toxic words to yourself?
