Hope you’ve had a great weekend and you have been able to control your facial expressions and thoughts better.
Here’s the final part of the series with the last the points continuing from last week…
1. Guard your heart: closely related to editing your thoughts is guarding your heart. As a matter of fact, you are able to edit your thoughts because you are guarding your heart. Proverbs 4:23 says ‘Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life.’ Your heart is like a factory, constantly manufacturing and producing products and by-products of what it is given. Therefore, for example, if you give it over heated conversations and arguments (ever so often), it will produce anger and its by-products of irritation, a snappy attitude, etc.
2.A revelation: sometimes, we could be so obstinate about how we feel and what we want. Stuck in our ways. We feel how we feel, we want what we want and we express what we want! We don’t want to listen to counsel or what anybody (or blog) has to say. Truth is, when we become like that, what people say directly won’t have an effect. We need a personal revelation of why we need to change. This could come through personal or third party prayers, reading a book or even talking to an absolute stranger.
3. Be intentional: this is close to deciding. Late last year, I began to ask myself what it meant to ME to be a wife. What kind of wife did I want to be? I began to pray and ask God for a word and he gave it to me. Ever since, I have something that guides how I relate to my husband. Oh, I flunk at it now and then, but it’s wwaayyy better than having nothing. I know I’ll get there.
Have a fabulous week ahead. I sense a very pleasant surprise for someone this week, in fact, a huge testimony. I pray it done in Jesus’ name. Amen.
See you next week!
