“Keep thy heart with all diligence;” says the good book “for out of it are the issues of life”. (Pro 4:23). The heart is the seat of all thoughts, everything we can ever think of comes from within it. Thoughts about who we are, who we want to become, how we want our lives to turn out etc.
These thoughts themselves are accumulated over time, usually subliminally, and we hardly ever realize that they mostly shape the direction our lives head and what/who we eventually become.
“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks” (Luk 6:45)
When the mouth speaks, it could be unto LIFE or unto DEATH. Words of LIFE are positive, constructive, encouraging, assuring, instill confidence and keep you going – say these to yourself and everyone else as much as you can.
Words of DEATH actually kill the life in you, they are destructive, demeaning, instill unnecessary fear and make you feel hopeless – stop saying these to yourself and everyone else as much as you can, because really…
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Pro 18:21).
If you have a tongue, (lol) your experience in life can be greatly shaped by the proper use of it and how far you are willing to go to pay the price required to get the prize. How? By consciously speaking the right words to your subconscious every time. I call this the positive inner conversation.
Always say positive affirmative words to yourself – for life is in the power of that your tongue: You’re pretty, you’re talented, you’re a genius even if in the making, you will make it, you will overcome your present challenges, you can do it, you can change your life, you can choose the right friends, you can start that business, you can have a happy family, you can pray for your husband/wife, you can forgive your father/mother, you can forgive that ex and move on with your life, your life can turn out better, you can achieve that dream, you can simply do anything you really and truly want, yes you can.
Declare… Affirm… Get up… and just do it.
