What do you feed your brain?

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17

Do you ever talk yourself out of a relationship because you think that person is out of your reach, your league? Do you have trouble getting out of bed in the mornings? Have you ever turned down a job offer because you thought that you couldn't do it? How about trying something new? Afraid to fail or look stupid? Do you have the power to always finish what you start no matter the outcome? If you can answer yes to these and many others like these, you may be filled with self doubt and negative thoughts. We can change these thought of "I can't" to "I can". You will never know what you can do until you try. Would you like to get rid of that stinking thinking? If so, read on.

There are many, many people who are defeated by everyday problems that do not have to be. We have let ourselves become defeated by problems, cares, difficulties and tragedies of this world. Should we allow them to dominate us? Are we supposed to feel and act lifeless, hopeless, and half dead as Christians? No! No one has to stay that way! Ever think that you don't have a prayer? You do have a prayer and it will carry you through. Christ came to bring everyone a joyous, enthustic life. We can do nothing without Him!

"I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

We as humans let obstacles control our mind. We need to fill our brains with heavenly food from above - God's Word. We can rise above those obstacle which try to defeat us. We can develop a faith in yourself, faith that is justified from above. We have to learn that what we put into our brains must come out, garbage in, garbage out. We have to change those thought to good healthy thoughts, instead of negative, controlling thoughts. These are the thoughts that we have chose to dwell in our minds, they are there by our own permission. We need to "be in the Spirit of our mind." Ephesians 4:23

"It is the Spirit that quickened; the flesh profited nothing; the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life." John 6:63

Having a terrible disbelief in one's self, no confidence, discouraged, depressed. I have found a solution by trial and error on my part. We can find all our solutions to this problem and many other principles of faith brought forth in the Bible. These principles can heal negative feelings; those content thoughts of insecurity, doubt, fear, discouragement, and inadequacy that have dominated our thoughts. We need to fill our mind with overflowing faith, putting in confident thoughts, putting in God's Word. We can get rid of those negative thoughts, build confidence, self trust, and our faith by getting saturated with God's presence, and reading His Word. We need to build our lives around worshipping our Father, rather than making it another part of our busy schedule. This will help develop a tremendous faith in God, and that will also give you a humble, yet sound faith in yourself.

"When a man gets to God, it is by the most simple way of words." - Oswald Chambers

Here are ten little words that I thought would be helpful to get you started. By saying these words aloud to yourself, you are putting in good things into your Spirit. You can and will be able to cope with anything that comes your way. You can have the ability to meet adversity and failure and misfortune with a smile. You don't have to lose your enthusiam, it will help keep your faith and confidence. You never know what you can do until you try.

I took this one little scripture and kept repeating it, as I have needed it often, and it is easy to remember. It has built up my confidence, self esteem, self worth, and self trust. I'm finding out that His word will carry me through anything and everything. This is what I have been saying aloud to all my negative thoughts!

"I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

Another suggestion that has helped me is to make some note card with some scripture on it, such as...

"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." I John 5:4

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place, and it shall move, and nothing shall be impossible unto you." Matthew 17:20

"Jesus said said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth." Mark 9:23

"What shall we say then to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31

These are just a few scriptures, there are many, many more. Take your new cards, memorize them, take them to heart. They will take the negativity and change them to thoughts of faith. We have got to change what we put into our mind. We need to fill our brain with good affirmations. With the support and help from God, He can and will change your thought process. We have got to have a continual attitude of dependence upon God. Him and Him alone!
