That’s All I Gonna Say Right Now ~ Self Talk
Greetings Dear Reader,
We hear and see things often about our inner dialogue. Not a day goes by where social media does not include a meme about who we are and how we should think of ourselves. The subject is vital but I wonder if we have the discipline to apply it.
When I think of self talk, I think that the negative messages over which we ruminate are the dangerous things. All wrong begins as a thought. We ponder something and then it becomes an action. Our negative feelings about everything start as a tendril of thought that we allow to grow into weeds that clog our minds.
Thomas Traherne said, “To think well is to serve God in the interior court.” We are told in the epistles to bring into captivity every thought. It is how we think that determines what we do. It is our minds that lead us to good or ill.
We choose. We take in data and accept or reject it. We tend to believe lies over the truth. We embrace negative over positive. I must capture every thought. I must kill the bad ones and propagate the good ones. I must reject the lies and have faith in the truth. I must only say what is good and true.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
