My friends, are you are speak­ing defeat over your life? If so, then are you sur­prised that noth­ing pos­i­tive is hap­pen­ing in your life with regards to your job search, your rela­tion­ship with your spouse or more gen­er­ally speak­ing in your life?

Here’s a sug­ges­tion for you. I know this pos­si­bly could make you feel a bit uncom­fort­able, but why don’t you start think­ing and speak­ing pos­i­tive thoughts over your life.  You can con­trol the power of the tongue. It’s just as easy as being neg­a­tive isn’t it? You use the same amount of energy being pos­i­tive as you do being neg­a­tive.  And noth­ing ever gets accom­plished when you are neg­a­tive. You will be sur­prised how things will change when you take this approach.

Make it a habit every­day when you wake up to give thanks to God.  Surely there’s some­thing in your life to give thanks for. Start your day off on the right foot for a change. With the power of the tongue, speak pos­i­tive thoughts over your life. Acti­vate God’s power and grace by invit­ing Him into your life. Find time to estab­lish a rela­tion­ship with God and get to know Him. The more you get to know the True God, the more you will be empow­ered to turn your life around. Well how do I get to know Him you ask? For one, fol­low our blog and read the arti­cles on our site. Make a con­scious effort when you feel dis­cour­aged or down about the way things are going, turn to God’s word and feed on it. Seek first the king­dom of God.

But seek first the king­dom of God and His right­eous­ness, and all these things shall be added to you.Matthew 6:33

Your life WILL change for the bet­ter, per­haps not overnight but it will change. I know this because it has for me. Let me be your tes­ti­mony that God always deliv­ers what He promises. In the mean­time, come to God as you are, make Him a daily part of your life and begin liv­ing an abun­dant life.

  1. Our words are so pow­er­ful that where we are today is a ful­fill­ment of what we said yes­ter­day. Our tomor­row is largely depended on things we are say­ing of our­selves today. Words are self ful­fill­ing in nature.
