Hello cyber loves!! I pray you’re being blessed and fulfilled in God wherever you are at this very moment. Over the weekend I attended a conference called Phenomenal I Am Women’s conference..Enlarge MY Territory. It was very enlightening, inspirational and confirmatory for me. You see, in order for God to enlarge our territory, we must know who’s we are, a child of God; love ourselves and know our purpose. So the Lord has really been revealing me to me lately. I want to be the most productive vessel in God I can be and I realize I can’t fully do that if I don’t view myself in a certain way. I must see me as God sees me. My mind and thoughts need a transformation…not to mention my heart. Lets face it…we all need some form of healing and deliverance DAILY!!! These concepts are not gender specific….so MEN GET AT IT TOO…healing is for everybody.
One of the speakers, Candace Cox, LCSW has a book called Seriously…Say It! It’s a book of daily affirmations on how to apply the KHAOS mindset. KHAOS: keep healing and overcoming struggles. It’s about forgiveness and learning to control how we respond/react to people and situations…past and present. According, to Mrs Cox, we don’t want to be in a state of CHAOS; CAN’T HELP ACTING OUT SEVERELY but incorporate the KHAOS principles. For the next 30 days, I’m working changing my perception of me. People don’t define me, God does. I want His beauty to shine through me and when I look in the mirror I want to see what He sees…someone fearfully and wonderfully made doing His will. Now I’m not saying I need 30 days of work..LOLOL..but that’s how long the devotional is….God doesn’t work on my time clock but I will complete the book. hahaha
For me just acknowledging how words/statements said to me are still affecting me IS a major step in my healing. My transparent moment–body image is a struggle for me that I’m no longer willing to have: NO MORE COMPARISONS, COMPETITION, CRITICAL THOUGHTS/COMMENTS. It’s time to really start loving ME, every part of ME. So whatever you don’t like about yourself or whomever you need to forgive because they didn’t treat you right or said hurtful things to you or even forgiving yourself for continuing to be hostage to the foolery, it’s worth starting the process TODAY. God is the main SOURCE to aid in that deliverance. Allow Him to show you the root cause(s) of issue(s) plaguing your life…TRUST ME, HE WILL, LOVINGLY!!!
Months ago I had some scriptures about “controlling your thoughts.” Well its time to pull them back out, do some serious praying, reflection, meditation, releasing and healing. We can’t have a productive life let alone healthy wholesome relationships with EXCESS BAGGAGE, LOW SELF ESTEEM AND LOW CONFIDENCE.
Read along if you like….men and women. I’m sure you could add to this list but it’s a start. BE BLESSED IN YOUR TRANSFORMATION!!!
