IS YOUR BODY SAYING YES?

Oh how we love to hear the word yes. Imagine how many temper tantrums would be averted and hearts left intact if the only word we heard was yes. Our faces would wear smiles, hearts sing, lips whistle, and our steps would have pep. Oops, pardon me for getting carried away with my imagination. Just the thought of smiling and having a bouncy walk though felt great. My body was responding to those positive images and for a moment I didn't have a care. I've learned that where my mind goes my body will follow. For so many years I was taught in church settings to ignore my feelings and just focus on the truth of God's word. I absolutely discounted my feelings and relegated them to Satan and him minions. Unfortunately, my body was saying pay attention to me, I'm speaking to you through your emotions and your feelings are my voice. So the sadness, disappointment and discouragement I felt was in my body [mind] and had nothing to do with unholy entities. I realized that my feelings were my navigational system created by God to give me directions. You're thinking what is she saying? For example, if someone said something about me that was untrue I would feel anger, rejection, and disappointment. Why would I ignore these feelings and hold Satan responsible for my emotions? I wouldn't. 


My action plan kicked in. I mentally referenced various scriptures redirecting my mind to the mind of God. I started to think about things in my life that gave laughter, excitement, joy and peace. Soon memories of the act and associated bad feelings faded. The reward of my action plan allows not just my mouth to say yes, but my entire body says yes. I am fully present. 
YES!

  2. Scripture teaches us that, "as a man thinketh so is he." Knowing this, we realize that we ARE our thoughts. Since how we think affects how we feel, we should not allow our thoughts to concentrate on ALL of the negative news that we're bombarded day in and day out. When we make a conscience effort to keep our thoughts positive, our bodies will respond with a resounding YES.

I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE

It is so easy to get lost inside of our minds and believe things about ourselves that are untrue. Sometimes we have to step back and consult with the ultimate authority regarding our importance and significance to the Creator of the Universe.  Psalm 139:1-18 O  Lord , you have examined my heart   and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up.You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it,  Lord . You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,   too great for me to understand!   I can never escape from your Spirit. I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning   if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength w

I AM AFFIRMATIONS

Life is beautiful! However life can also be difficult and hard. It is so easy to allow tragedies, disappointments and setbacks to get in our way. Thereby sullying God's sacred posture in our human experience. When Moses had an encounter with God and questioned how he was to identify or describe God to the children of Israel. God replied to Moses: "I Am Who I Am. Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you." Mirror work has been used for eons to bring people into alignment with their purpose, destiny, and calling. Instead of reciting traditional positive affirmations let's use scripture for backup. Stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself •I am God’s child for I am born again of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God which lives and abides forever 1 Pet. 1:23 •I am forgiven all my sins and washed in the blood Eph. 1:7 •I am a new creature II Cor. 5:17 •I am the temple of the Holy Spirit I Cor. 6:19 •I am delivered from the power

THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND

Today is my sister's birthday. She indeed is my best friend. We have so many memories and regularly share laughs. She is and has always been a blessing to our family. Her love has no boundaries. She is a peaceful and calm person. She loves black and white movies, musicals, broadway plays, baking and working in her art studio. The Golden Girls was one of my favorite TV sitcoms. Actually the theme song drew me to the show. "Thank you for being a friend Traveled down the road and back again Your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant. And if you threw a party Invited everyone you knew You would see the biggest gift would be from me And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend." Happy Birthday Sis! source: http://www.lyricsondemand.com/tvthemes/goldengirlslyrics.html
