In this episode, we’re talking about the power of the words we speak over ourselves.
IT’S NOT NATURAL, WE KNOW…
Speaking life over ourselves doesn’t always come naturally. It’s easier to say great things about others than over ourselves. In this week’s Past to Power episode Amy Elaine and LaTan have a great conversation about how to be kinder to ourselves.
Something powerful happens when we learn to speak kindly to ourselves.
Instead of feeling defeated, we become confident about who we are in Christ. Knowing our identity and agreeing with what God says about us allows us to walk out our best life. If necessary, make yourself a note and stick it on the fridge. No more comparing, complaining, and criticizing, be kind to ourselves.
WORDS LIKE HONEY
Try speaking kindly to yourself when you look in the mirror in the morning. Perhaps, you don’t know what to say. God’s Word is a great place to start if you’re at a loss for words. Pick up the Psalms to nourish your soul. Most importantly, find scriptures to refresh and renew your thoughts.
“Gracious speech is like clover honey— good taste to the soul, quick energy for the body.” Proverbs 16:24 MSG
