Affirmations: to say something is true with confidence; emotional encouragement.
It probably comes to no surprise that I’m a sucker for affirmations and believe in the power of words greatly. Here are three examples of affirmations that I write & speak aloud to myself often (yes, sometimes 15 times in a day):
- The past has no power over me anymore.
- I have been saved not by works, but grace, so that I might do good works.
- I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy.
We’re all hardwired for affirmation. We all long for it. It’s in our DNA.
Unfortunately, many people find affirmation in the wrong places, seek it from the wrong people, or never learn the power of self-affirmation.
If there’s one thing (ok maybe one of many things) that I wish I could go back and tell my younger self, it would be to stop listening to everyone else’s voices, to quit buying into the garbage that this world sells, and instead, tune into the one and only voice that truly matters- my Heavenly Father’s!
Oh how much heartache it would have spared me.
Now, at 24 years old, I’m not only speaking affirmations into my own life, but the lives of others. Let me tell you, there is nothing more profound or meaningful to me than when I hear from someone, “Your words have changed the way I view myself entirely.”
Will you join me in seeking God’s truth and letting that be manifested in our hearts? What goes in will always flow out, so let’s speak life to ourselves and into the lives of others as we become filled with His goodness.
In the spirit of UPLIFTING one another,
