Focus on What I Believe {#Write31Days}

Another thing that keeps me from truly focusing on the things that I know I am called by God to do is what I believe.  What I believe can be more powerful that what others believe about me.  What I believe can be more powerful than what God says about me because I can not change what I don’t believe needs changing.  I will not change what I don’t believe needs to be changed.  

That is why I must focus on what I believe if I want to be able to change the trajectory of my future.  My thoughts must begin to lineup first with what God says about me.  When I believe that He says about me, then I need to focus on what His Word says about my future.  When I believe that God has a plan and purpose for my future, then I must begin to line up my actions with what I have come to believe.Belief

So where do I start working on changing what I believe?  The Bible is filled with many scriptures about who God says that I am.  I can start meditating on the Word of God.  I can write out those scriptures.  I can memorize those truths.  I can apply them to my life.  I can pray that God will help me to see myself as He sees me.

When I have that down, then I can start looking up scriptures about what God says about my future and do the same thing.  It will not change what I believe overnight, but with consistent application, what I believe will begin to line up with what God says about me and about my future so that I can line up my actions with who I really am and what I am called to do.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
