The lies you tell yourself are becoming a hardship for us all cause we can’t benefit from your good cause you don’t see.
Ya see, cause of the random naysaying throwing-shade-at-yourself-talk you say to self, you get stuck. Don’t progress. And the world loses out on your gifts
It ain’t fair!
When you lie to yourself about how about badly you need your job because you don’t want to be broke, tell the truth about how broke you already are.
Can you get broker than broke? Once your coins get on the down low, your come up will come at a cost only God can pay. Quit letting that job overwhelm you and you still can’t overcome the light bill.
When a co-worker made a comment about your consignment clothing, you lied and told yourself you never did like those pants.
When you quit telling yourself you ain’t crazy & your friend really is jealous of you…Thank God for knowing exactly what to pray about for him or her.
You knew she had been lightweight hating on you, but you convinced yourself there was no way anyone would envy your broke and used clothes wearing self. She wasn’t jealous of your closet. She desired the unseen gifts you tried to hide, but God revealed anyway.
When you didn’t know what to do about your family… Thank God for freeing you from it cause you didn’t know what to do.
When you stopped seeing how you were a blessing to others…Thank God for giving you humility even at the expense of your ego.
You can be glad your ego ain’t bigger than your consignment britches.
When you felt uncomfortable about what they did at work after they tossed your lil input aside… Thank God for the discomfort cause this is how you know comfort when you see it again.
When you didn’t shut your mouth & you wish you had…Thank God for your big mouth & ask Him to put it to good use before you get locked up behind it.
Your Momma always said your mouth would be your downfall and it will, after you breakthrough.
When your child embarrassed the mess out of you… Thank God for letting you know to be empathetic with another parent trying to raise a strong-willed child.
When you let your body be dishonored & devalued… Thank God for leading you to Him so you can know better.
The lies people tell you that you repeat to yourself, don’t come true because the words become your mental mantra. Those deadly words feel true cause you gave them life, but they are killin’ you.
Tell the truth about how these thoughts and feelings drag you. Tell the truth about how many times you think about it, over and over and over, again, at work, after work and a week later.
Telling the truth lets you free yourself from the lie so you can find relief in your own thoughts.
