We've all been there. We wake up feeling like death and have to pull ourselves out of bed to face the day. We look in the mirror and see a haggard woman staring back at us. We silently wonder, "Is this really all there is to life? Will I ever feel normal again?" If this sounds familiar, then it's time for a change. It's time to start speaking life over yourself.

We are constantly bombarded with negative messages. The media tells us we're not thin enough, smart enough, or successful enough. Our friends and family may unintentionally make us feel like we're not good enough. So, we end up believing these lies and speaking them out over our lives. But what if we changed the narrative? What if instead of speaking death, we spoke life?

The Power of Words
We live in a world that is constantly trying to bring us down. Every day we're faced with challenges and difficulties that can cause us to doubt ourselves and our worth. But did you know that you have the power to change your circumstances simply by speaking words of life over yourself? That's right! The words you speak have tremendous power. They can either build you up or tear you down. So choose your words wisely!

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits." - Proverbs 18:21 ESV

This verse from Proverbs tells us that our words have the power to either bless or curse our lives. What we say matters! Our words can either help us achieve our dreams or keep us trapped in a cycle of negative thinking. So, if you want to start speaking life over yourself, here are a few things to remember:

Remember Who You Are in Christ - As Christians, we need to remember who we are in Christ. We are children of God, fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). We are loved, accepted, and forgiven (Jeremiah 31:3). When negative thoughts come into our minds, we need to counter them with the truth of who God says we are. 

Focus on Speaking Truth - In John 8:32 Jesus said, "And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." When negative thoughts come into our minds, it's important that we focus on speaking truth instead of lies. The enemy wants nothing more than to keep us trapped in a cycle of negativity, but we don't have to believe his lies! Instead, let's focus on speaking truth over our lives. 

Choose Your Words Carefully - "Be careful little mouth what you say" is more than just a nursery rhyme; it's good advice! We need to be careful about the words we speak because they have the power to shape our lives. When negative thoughts come into our minds, resist the urge to speak them out loud. Choose your words carefully and focus on speaking words of life instead." 

Use Affirmations - One way to start speaking life over yourself is by using affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that you repeat regularly in order establish them as truths in your mind. For example, some affirmations you could use are "I am amazing," "I am valuable," or "I am loved." Choose affirmations that resonate with you and repeat them often!                             
You have the power to change your life simply by choosing your words carefully and speaking words of life over yourself! Remember who you are in Christ, focus on speaking truth, choose your words carefully, use affirmations often…and watch your life change for the better!
