We’re five days away and the countdown has begun for the April 1st release of my new book Unsinkable Faith! I hope you’ll hop on board with me this week and help celebrate the release by participating on my blog for a chance to win free stuff in all the daily giveaways, and sharing the post and giveaways on your social media pages!
Each day this week I’ll post a brief devotion, in addition to a photo and description of the daily giveaway, along with how to enter to win. So invite your friends, and let’s have fun and get this party started!
Have you ever considered the power your thoughts have over your happiness?
Ever feel like since your negative circumstances or adversities aren’t likely to change, that you can’t ever live a life full of joy, peace or contentment?
Do you sometimes feel like your thoughts are bossing you around, causing you to feel stuck in unhealthy emotions and discouragement?
Sweet friend, if you want to start thinking differently and living differently, you have the power of choice in your hands. You can be the boss of your thoughts, rather than letting them be the boss of you, and when you choose to take charge, your life will radically change.
We don’t have to stay stuck in negativity no matter what we’re going through or how hard life seems, because we each have the power within us through Christ to transform how we think, which changes how we feel, which changes our perspectives, which ultimately changes us and the way we live life in a positive way. Positive thinking always leads to positive living, but it’s a choice we have to intentionally make.
It’s easy to overlook the importance of our thoughts and not only the power they hold over our lives, but the power they hold to change who we are from the inside out. If we think negative, we will be negative and live a negative life. If we intentionally choose to think positive even in the midst of negative circumstances, we will become a more positive person and live a more positive, happy life. All too often we assume since we don’t have control over negative circumstances or situations, we also don’t have control over how we think and feel. But we do!
Romans 12:2 says: “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” In this verse, God assures that we can transform our minds and thoughts patterns, and as you’ll read in my book, many scientific studies prove that this is possible as well – thus science has finally caught up with scripture! In writing Unsinkable Faith, I became utterly amazed at the results I read about from research about how changing how we think not only transforms us mentally, emotionally and spiritually, but also can physically transform the shape of our brain. I know you’re going to be amazed and inspired too! Change is possible!
We all have the power in Christ to stop letting our thoughts and feelings cause us to sink by grabbing hold of the life preserver of joy God offers. We can have hope for a renewed mind and an amazingly positive, joy-filled life, despite the mistakes of our past, the hard circumstances of the present, or the unknowns of the future, and despite how long we’ve felt enslaved to a negative mind-set. We can have unshakable peace, unwavering joy, and unsinkable faith, even when the storms of life blow in.
All believers have the power of the Holy Spirit within them to break down the stronghold of negativity in their lives, no matter how many years negative thinking has taken up residence in their minds.
Our thoughts have power over our lives, and they can either boss us around or we can intentionally choose to be in charge and aware of our how we think. When we admit our need for change, and ask God to start the process of mind transformation in us, change is not only possible, but becomes a reality. If you’re ready to start thinking and living more positively, let go of the anchor of negativity and get excited about the possibility of unsinkable faith and optimism becoming a reality in your life.
