As recovering addicts we sometimes experience slips, maybe even a full relapse, falling back into our addiction. When we do, it’s easy to justify our behavior by thinking or saying, “That’s just who I am.”
If that’s who we think we are – that’s who we will continue to be.
We must take a hard stand, placing strong boundaries on our thoughts and the words that come out of our own mouth.
By taking a proactive approach we not only protect ourselves, but we take charge of our potential destiny.
Our thoughts and words can curse us.
Take a moment today… examine your thoughts.
Are they thoughts that will eventually lead to your destruction?
Delete the old words from your memory by speaking new words over yourself.
Write down the negative thought. Then turn it into a positive thought and write it down. Post it where you can see it on a regular basis and speak this over your life.
It’s critical that we know who we are in God’s eyes.
Dig into God’s Word and see who He says you are!
Then use the words of your mouth, with God’s help, to create a healthy life today and for the future!
I will think only on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy! (Philippians 4:8-9)
