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) Hope all is well. Those pesky thoughts that whisper psst. Entertain just one psst and that thought brings stronger than the last psst.
Today’s quote is quite powerful. Think about it, how many times do we internalize and replay, retell something that is just rhetoric?
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 ourselves.
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. We love him, because he first loved us.
~ 1 John 4:18-19 ~
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. In time, psst loses it power.
Abundant blessings, my friends, because the just shall live by faith, as we silence psst and smile because we can. (wink)
Feel free to share your thoughts on psst.
