The battle I have been in this past week has been crazy. I am so worried about so many things. What in the world is really going on?? Do I trust people in my life? I do, but I REALLY trust my Father. And then I prayed…and then I was shown that I move too fast. I already knew THAT. I am still trying to run the show and it’s making me miserable. Even when I am trying to remain calm and positive, its from my own strength and not Gods. And it’s wearing me out, and that is what is about to take me out. This is silly of me. I NEED TO SIT STILL. And breathe. I need to stop speaking so negatively about people and to people and even over my own life. Words from the heart change the course of direction whether you are turning to the right or to the left.
I can speak life over myself and others or I can speak death. The choice is mine. Through my words I have the power to change my circumstances!
Mark 11:23 – “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will done for them.”
God can do anything as long as I believe, I don’t hold a grudge against anyone else, as long as my motives are pure and not selfish, and if my desire will benefit the kingdom of God. Then my mountains will move!! Checking myself and my list of “NEEDS” will really put things in perspective. I need faith in God, not faith in the object of my request! THAT’S DEEP STUFF!!!
Susan said, “Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.” I know my heart, and I know my words are NOT matching up. I can’t solve my heart problem by myself. I need the Holy Spirit (The Spirit of Jesus) to fill me up with a new attitude. Susan said I need to have a desire to change, I need to stop making excuses because excuses are nails that build a house of failure. I need to take immediate action and do something I have never been willing to do before. Procrastination stops change. I must change how I see myself. When I have nothing to hide, I hide nothing. I must NEVER go back to the way things were. And most important, I need to STOP waiting for someone else to do it for me. I can change me, no one else can change me but ME and God is my source of the power to change. Change begins with my words, words I speak about myself, about others, about my situations. And words begin with a thought…
I want my mountains to MOVE!

Matthew 12:36-37 – But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.
WOW…I have a lot to be accountable for at the day of judgment, but if my WORDS can send me to hell, then I have a lot of confessing to do. The Lord was speaking to me. Let Him speak to you! It’s there for the taking! His Word is ALIVE and TRUE!!
