I have been working very hard lately to make sure that my mindset is not one of defeat but of life and triumph.
Dr. Caroline Leaf -Amazing Neuroscientist! Says that you can change your brain.
So I have been working to take the dead branches in my mind and replace them with truth and life and create new live branches.
This journey of the greatest hardship I have had to face, has been one with many ups and downs, twists and turns. Some days you feel victorious and others defeat and yet,.... and yet... "we are more than conquerors" I have pondered this thought a lot in recent months.
What does a conqueror look like, act like, receive and most importantly believe? especially about themselves.
What do you see?
I see someone who knows beyond a shadow of doubt that they are backed up by power. I see someone who holds their head up high and speaks with bold confidence. I see someone that receives praise and honor, not to lord it over others but to be blessed because they earned it. I see someone who believes the impossible is real. That in the face of adversity all is possible and there is no predictable outcome. When God is on their side, there is nothing to fear. That's what I see.
So if we ARE more than conquerors as scripture states that we are, then we better start acting like it.
I will no longer live in the old. The fear, the insecurity, the anxiety, the what ifs. My old things have passed away, its time yours should to.
Its time for you to heal.
Isaiah 43:18-20 New King James Version (NKJV)
18 “Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
