Journal to yourself:
Write down a list of all the positive AND negative things spoken over you by your father, mother, grandparents, teachers, babysitters, any powerful influence in your life.
Many of these things will line up with your default ‘inner dialog’. They are not God’s truth about who you are, but many of us take on these things as if they are.
Journal to God:
Ask God to tell you what He has to say about you.
*Remember, God’s Spirit is not condemning; His truth expands your heart to receive peace, vision and hope. God’s words bring life. The enemy’s lies bring death, destruction and condemnation.
Journaling has been the backbone of much of my healing and I wanted to share the process of how God has been re-programing my mind. I will continue to do exercise as ‘negative thoughts’ pop up and reveal themselves as I truly believe living in divine health requires a deep commitment to your healing.
Prayer for Proper Identity:
“Lord, I let go of every limiting word spoken over me. I untangle my mind, body and emotions from the confusion and shame this has caused.
Today, I give you each word that does not serve my greater good. Clear my heart of this heavy, acidic garbage. I want what you have for me, so I am making room for that now.
Give me the faith to believe and receive every good word you speak over me. I open myself to being filled with joy, peace and hope.
I forgive those who hurt me intentionally or unintentionally. Fill me with the grace and understanding that we are all in a state of ignorance; we all need you to lead us, to bring out the gold in us and help us bring out the gold in others.
Whisper my proper identity whenever I fall back into my old ways of thinking. Give me the patience to keep coming to YOU for who I am. In Jesus’ name, thank you for creating me with such intention and purpose. Amen.”
