The Right to Change ~ What You Say to Yourself
Greetings Dear Reader,
There is a great deal of talk about self-talk. It is true that what we say inside determines who we are outside. As one thinks internally, this is what one becomes. We are the culmination of our thoughts turned to actions, habits, and lifestyle.
We can change anything that we do that is unwise or unhealthy. We cannot do it unless we first change how we talk to and how we talk about ourselves. Whether it is negative self-doubt or arrogant pride, the things we think about ourselves determine who we become. Either way, an honest view of who we are can be elusive.
The choices we make about our self-talk can change. We have to begin to ignore how we think we are and see what we really are. We cannot lie to ourselves and see the world properly. If we are not true to who we are then we cannot hope to be genuine with others.
This, of course, begs the question of who we are. Beginning with a clear understanding of this is the key to mapping the path of the right to change. We are creations loved by the Father. He wants good for us that is beyond our ken. He wishes for us to know him deeply and richly in every aspect of life.
No matter where I stand in my mind, the journey to loving and knowing the Father begins with the choice to do so. It is mapped and accomplished by following his Son, Jesus. To begin, we start each day with this: The Father wishes for us to love him and each other. We can only accomplish this in faith. Our following in faith gives us somewhere to stand and get an accurate view of who we are.
What we say to ourselves determines who we are. Why then would we not align our thinking with the thinking of one who loves us enough to give everything for our sake Dear Reader? As we journey perhaps our inner dialogue should change into a moment-by-moment consideration of who we are in the eyes of the Father and how we can best live it out in that moment.
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 homeowner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
