FOR EVERY NEGATIVE THERE IS A POSITIVE…

So before I hit the hay, I wanted to find a scripture to post on my What Would Jenn Say Facebook fan page (<—-small plug in lol!). I stumbled across an AMAZING website that gave me way more than I could have ever asked for. I thought this would be great to share with you and to keep with you. Print it out. When you start to even begin to feel discouraged or have a negative thought…remember God has a positive response just for you – You no longer have the right to come up with an excuse. I pray you are blessed with what I found and share with you below.

 

You say: “It’s impossible”
God says: “All things are possible” (Luke 18:27)
Jesus replied, “What is impossible with men is possible with God.”

You say: “I’m too tired”
God says: “I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28-30)
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

You say: “Nobody really loves me”
God says: “I love you” (John 3:16 & John 13:34)
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

You say: “I can’t go on”
God says: “I will direct your steps” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

You say: “I can’t do it”
God says: “You can do all things” (Philippians 4:13)
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

You say: “I’m not able”
God says: “I am able” (II Corinthians 9:8)
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all thingsat all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every goodwork.

You say: “It’s not worth it”
God says: “It will be worth it” (Romans 8:28)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

You say: “I can’t forgive myself”
God says: “I FORGIVE YOU” (I John 1:9 & Romans 8:1)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

You say: “I can’t manage”
God says: “I will supply all your needs” (Philippians 4:19)
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

You say: “I’m afraid”
God says: “I have not given you a spirit of fear” (2Timothy 1:7)
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

You say: “I’m always worried and frustrated”
God says: “Cast all your cares on ME” (I Peter 5:7)
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

You say: “I don’t have enough faith”
God says: “I’ve given everyone a measure of faith” (Romans 12:3)
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

You say: “I’m not smart enough”
God says: “I give you wisdom” (I Corinthians 1:30)
It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.

You say: “I feel all alone”
God says: “I will never leave you or forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5)
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you”

YOU ARE…

  • You are mean…
  • You are stupid…
  • You are never going to accomplish anything…
  • Who is ever going to love you…
  • You are ugly…
  • You are a nobody…
  • You are fat…
  • You are disgusting…
  • You are too skinny…
  • You are dumb…
  • You are slow…
  • Your idea will never work…
  • Your marriage/relationship will never work…
  • You won’t finish school…

Sounds horrible doesn’t it? You could never imagine saying some of those things to others, never mind yourself right?! Yet most of you say those same things to yourselves on a daily basis. I’ll be the first to admit I have said some of those very things to myself. If were not telling ourselves some of those mean things, I’m sure we all can think of someone who has said something they shouldn’t have to us.

We are told in Proverbs 18:21, our tongues hold the power of life and death. We ALL know this, but still struggle with idea of speaking life into our OWN situations. We find it easier to believe and speak into others’ lives that God will do for them what he seems to take forever to do for us. We are quick to scold someone for speaking negative thoughts, while we struggle to find the positives in our situations. We all will fall, but it’s up to us to get back up and keep pushing toward our ultimate goals. Okay…sounds “cliche” right? I have something for you- I want you to meet Heather Dorniden. Watch this video…

When I first saw this video, I was so inspired. I was quickly reminded that this race represents so many of our stories. How many times do we find ourselves at the top of our game only to fall flat on our faces? To make things worse, Heather was in the lead going into the final lap! Instead of having a pity party, walking off the track, crying and whining, Heather picked herself up and finished the race. But not only did she finish the race, she finished with even more vigor than when she began. She used her fall to push her further into her victory. Can you imagine if Heather had negative thoughts about herself after she fell on the track? She would have NEVER pulled herself up and finished. I bet Heather spoke positive words to herself, she had faith, hope and she had a vision. She never lost sight of her goal…which was to finish the race.

We are all reminded to have faith, for,” Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” {Hebrews 11:1} for “Faith with out works is dead.” {James 2:14}. Are you seeing how these two go hand in hand? Having faith gives you the confidence you need to believe that what you hope for will happen, which in turn will push you forward to do the work, toward the vision that you have in front of you. Along your journey you will hit bumps in the road and you may even fall, but you must SPEAK LIFE! Speak life into your finances, your marriage, your life, your self-esteem, your job situation…whatever it may be! SO:

  • You are NICE…
  • You are SMART…
  • You WILL ACCOMPLISH EVERYTHING YOU SET OUT TO DO…
  • JESUS LOVES YOU AND GAVE HIS LIFE FOR YOU…
  • You are BEAUTIFUL/HANDSOME…
  • You are SOMEBODY…
  • You are HEALTHY…
  • You are AMAZING…
  • You are INTELLIGENT…
  • You are DILIGENT AND DETERMINED TO FINISH THE RACE…
  • Your idea will CHANGE LIVES AND CREATE OPPORTUNITIES…
  • Your marriage/relationship will BE THE BEST IT’S EVER BEEN…
  • You WILL FINISH SCHOOL…

You will be alright friends…just remember it could be a WHOLE lot worse!

If you enjoyed today’s post…let me know! Comment below, pass the word on to your friends and family!

I love you for all your continued support friends!

Love Yah!

SHORT AND SWEET…

Hey there!!!

It is always best for you to allow the Word to speak to you. Sometimes in the clouds of thoughts that surround you at any given moment, you can become lost in all the wrong ones. There will always be times when people won’t understand what your feeling or going through; there will be times YOU don’t understand what your feeling or going through :). But there is One that we can ALWAYS count on to know what to say to us, just when we need to hear it the most.

I wanted to list a few of my favorite scriptures for you…not a huge post today…just something to encourage you and keep you pressin’ on toward your greater purpose.  😉

Love Ya!
