Today wraps up this series on Faith Based Affirmations, but of course the promises they are based on go on forever! The Bible is full of these treasures and I pray you’ll be blessed each time you uncover or rediscover his messages to your heart, knowing he is faithful to deliver on each and every one!
I place my hope in my God. He is faithful.
He will finish the good work he has started in (me, my work, my family…).
I am loved.
I anchor myself to God’s promises. His truth sets me free to hope.
Developing personal affirmations is an ongoing process. Changing our thoughts has the power to change our outcome. As we grow and circumstances change, so do our needs. Remember to check in with yourself and amend as needed!
Here’s the guide from the initial post as a review.
- Trust that your thoughts do shape your outcome.
- Give any negative self-talk over to God. You may know exactly where or who these thoughts originate from. If not, dig deep asking for courage and wisdom. Pray for the ability to forgive if needed. Letting go of this weight will free you to see yourself (and others!) the way God does.
- Invite God into your affirmation brainstorming session. He’s called you as his co-worker and wants to build you up strong! (1 Cor 3:9 ESV)
- Share your thoughts and questions with a trusted friend or mentor. Invite them to boost you up with what they wish your heart could hear on a daily basis. I bet it will be powerfully sweet stuff!
