what are you saying???

Grungy Brick Wall
confession: my fears get the best of me at times. my mind goes crazy and off on all kinds of “what if” scenarios. i have fears as a wife for my husband who travels frequently. fears as a mom for my kids. fears as a woman who is a work in progress and fails quite often.

What do I do with the fears when they bombard my head and I can’t move forward? How do I get over this wall that I keep running into? How do I break free from the circles that I find myself going round and round till I’m dizzy?

this is what i’ve been asking myself.

i found a wonderful article on girl talk blog that spoke directly to me and answered some of my questions. I am challenged by the article to stop listening to myself and start speaking more to myself. stop the “what if” questions that are not reality and start speaking the truth and promises to myself that are reality. stop listening. start speaking.

so what are you saying to yourself? or are you listening?

I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.

    I have been thinking about this a lot, too. What I’m finding is that I want more Scripture in my head so I can talk to myself more with verses….that’s definitely something I need to work on. It’s so easy to get the tape of negative self-talk going. Thanks for this post!

  2. yes. it does matter what we say to ourselves. and scripture is the answer. for the first time in my life scriptures are sticking in my head and i’m remembering them when needed! ptl!

    i find more and more that i am like a ship at sea between tossed around by the waves unless i am in the Word deeply each day. if i don’t stay on my knees long enough to finish the conversation with God, things just don’t get settled. so, next time you see me, check for holes in my jeans. :)
