What you are thinking in your mind – what you are saying to yourself – what you are meditating on – that is your self-talk. Be very careful of your self –talk. We can easily slip into negative self –talk.
I remember going to work one day and on the way I started thinking – nobody likes me – everybody hates me – Life is the pits. I was having a pity party. I was centering in on the negative. All of a sudden I realized what I was doing.
Do you know what I did?
I stopped having a pity party (changed my way of thinking) and started thinking of the grace and goodness of God. God loves me. God forgives me. He thinks I am special. He thinks I am so special that He sent His Son to die on the cross for me. Just because God made the first man out of mud does not mean that all that I am worth is dirt – No! I am worth the sacrifice of God’s own Son. That is what God tells me I am worth and so are you.No matter who you are in this world. No matter what language you speaks and no matter what colors you are T
Yes I am a sinner – but God knows that and says I am still worth dying for. In fact He has – so stop thinking that you are worthless –God doesn’t. Change your way of thinking. Change your self –talk.
