Faith To Silence…Psst

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
~ Proverbs 18:21 ~

Forgive yourself first. Release the need to replay a negative situation over and over again in your mind. Don’t become a hostage to your past by always reviewing and reliving your mistakes. Don’t remind yourself of what should have, could have or would have been. Release it and let it go. Move on.
~ Les Brown ~

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
~ Philippians 4:8 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Those pesky thoughts that whisper psst. Entertain just one psst and that thought brings stronger than the last psst. (shock face)

Today’s quote is quite powerful. Think about it, how many times do we internalize and replay, retell something that is just rhetoric?

Psst.

Speaking the Word of God, to psst, will renew the mind.

The power of words spoken give strength to move forward.

Replacing one psst at a time is powerful to our spirit.

Praise The Lord to realize we can silence psst just by changing the way we speak to ourself.

Here are a few scriptures to dispel psst:

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
~ Joshua 1:9 ~

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
~ John 3:16-17

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
~ Romans 8:1 ~

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
~ Romans 12:2 ~

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
~ 2 Corinthians 3:18 ~

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
~ 2 Corinthians 5:17 ~

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
~ Philippians 4:13 ~

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
~ 1 John 4:18 ~

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
~ 1 John 5:4-8 ~

Sometimes we give psst power to overwhelm us.

Blessings friends, by faith, as we silence psst and smile because we can! (smile)

Feel free to share your thoughts on psst.

Faith To Sleep Well Tonight

Sometimes, all you have to do is relax and remind yourself that you’re doing all that you can and that everything is going to turn out alright.
~ Unknown Author ~

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
~ Psalm 23 ~

Hello friends. (smile) How was your day? Psalms can bring comfort to rest the mind and ease tension in the body. Praying a Psalm is powerful too.Praise The Lord for the power of prayer.

Abundant blessings, by faith, as we sleep well tonight!

Ann - A Friend of Jesus 2013

The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.

Spark

A strong friendship doesn’t need daily conversation, doesn’t always need togetherness, as long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends will never part…
~ Unknown Author ~

Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
~ Proverbs 27:17 ~

Hello friends. (smile) A smile. A hug. A look. A word. A call. A text. A prayer. __________(fill in the blank).

Any of these can rekindled a spark to keep moving forward, get out of bed and face the day, change focus or ___________(fill in the blank).

True connections always have a spark. (smile)

It’s a beautiful thing, when friends get us.

It’s heartwarming, when friends just listen at times when we need a safe zone.

It comforting, when friends call or show up when we’re challenged and pray.

Its amazing when friends can grow and sharpen each other.

It’s wonderful to hang out and laugh with friends.

Praise The Lord for those, in life, who provide the spark when needed most.

Blessings and enjoy today reminiscing about those spark moments. (smile)

Faith To Sleep Well Tonight

Sleeping is a cure to forget about pain, problems, stress and everything for a while.
~ Unknown Author ~


Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, for I an meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
~ Matthew 11:28-30 ~

Faith and Grace

The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
~ Unknown Author ~

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
~ 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Hello friends. (smile) Life comes down to choices. Praise The Lord with faith that his grace gets us through any challenge today.

Remember, challenges are temporary. The awesome power of grace.

Abundant blessings to enjoy the day.
