Faith over poison!

Toxic from negativity in my soul is like intoxication to the body.

The longer my soul indulges in the negativity it intoxicates my mind. Much like how alchol intoxicates and impairs, so can negativity the longer I don’t deal with it.

I must begin to chip away harder at the negativity I house within my soul. It can begin to be like a viper and constrict the flow the longer it goes from being loosed from having such a strong control.

Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? Those who linger long over wine, Those who go to taste mixed wine. Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it goes down smoothly; At the last it bites like a serpent And stings like a viper. Your eyes will see strange things And your mind will utter perverse things. Proverbs 23:29‭-‬33 NASB

The 40-day detox has been rough and will be rougher soon as I begin to take and loose the viper hold and bring sobriety to my mind. As thats what God wants for us to be spirit-lead and not soul lead.

A sober spirit leading our life:

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8 NASB

The more I allow the negativity housed within lead me and guide me thats not sober or spirit lead. To stop whats been going on in me, we find in the above verse “be on alert”. I have to become keen to know what I am thinking and what comes from that, ie., attitudes, words, actions, passiveness and lack of sobriety.

I have been in the negativity so long that it has kept its appeal to keep it around much like an addiction. The feelings associated with it, the attitudes that came from it, the false humility and pride.

Well perhaps its safe to say:

I am addicted to negativity!”

But now…

I am tired of the by product that the negativity has caused from such mindset that I have had. This detox by the end of it in another 20 days I want to see progress and change the more, thats my goal and determination to obtain. Pastor Juanita Gibbs taking us on her detox plan for 20/21 days its been real but about to be the more real.

Faith from the word of God is the antidote to the poison of negativity!

👮Caught in the act!👮

Now I am under arrest!

Being detained in a holding cell with no where to go but the confinds of the small space!

Just kidding!

But it can be that same feeling in our minds by thinking, how we handle things, how much of our emotions dictate our moves. Those things can make us feel boxed in, with no where to go and no way to grow until someone comes to bail you out!

My bailbondsman came in the form of my Pastor. She has come with price paid in Jesus finished work of the cross, she is highly anointed to do His work to mature believers and break the barriers on thier life!

My life is beginning to show forth the signs of that very call upon her life! I am so greatful. As long as I implement the tools she shares, apply wisdom of the word to align myself with truth, the more my life will show forth Hos glory as it has begun.

My Pastor has showed me tools to use to become self aware. I am empowered and graced by God to grow in my mind. Say when I feel anxiety begin to creep in, as it usually likes to try to.

I have to be aware of it and when it comes I have to arrest anxiety. I have to detain it (2 Corinthians 10:5), find out why it began to creep in or the root cause, and put it in a holding sell (1 Peter 5:7).

The way to come out of it is by change and change comes in the mind deciding not to fall into the temptation to need to be arreseted in mind. (Romans 12:2 & Eph 4:23)

By not changing my ways of thinking and allowing my mind or my emotions to run me they cause in ways an arrested development to life.

They had kept me from growing and maturing properly in line with truth. As layer by layer gets exposed that needs to mature and grow in ways that line up with how God says to live they become unlocked from the bondage of immaturity and lack of development.

Is it easy?

No!

Just as in the world when a felon is released its not easy for them to not relapse and find themself in the same trouble all over again.

So, yes I fail and sometimes fail royally as it could mess things up with people or my gifts, call, talent and abilities the longer I let them run wild over arresting them and grow out of them ruling me.

I want to continue to progress to living the life God has promised us. One of peace, hope, love, etc. But, I have to do the work. God graced me with the power to do it. He won’t change us in our mind, we have to change us in mind.
