Morning Line: Hope Lifts !
Take control of your Self-Talk!
“ But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; “ Lamentations 3:21-22 (NRSVCE)
Lamentations chapter three describes how despair engulfs us, and how we can conquer it. Jeremiah was in a downward spiral starts with unhealthy preoccupation with his troubles. He was blaming God for his physical symptoms, his emotional anguish, and his sense of entrapment, all classic elements of depression. This kind of self-talk initiates and intensifies despair and depression and feeds our negative outlook. The turning point came when Jeremiah changed his self-talk: “This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope.” He changed his thought process by recalling God’s goodness and mercy:
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed…his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (vv. 22-23 ).
When you change your mind—you change your mood! It doesn’t happen automatically; you have to deliberately refocus your thinking at the very time you feel like doing it least. Choose to have a stream of encouraging thoughts to trigger a change in your self-talk.
As Jeremiah call to mind: “‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I have hope in Him’” (v. 24 ).
What better promise is there to stand up in hope knowing God’s steadfast love and promises are for you and will come for you as you have Faith and Believe. Praise God mount up, go win your race of the day!!!
Live Life with Expectation!
See you in God’s Winners Circle.
