It’s too loud in here!!
Sitting in the quiet is the time when what is in your mind truthfully begins to surface!
Well it does for me…
Finding things to do or music to hear or having a conversation to occupy the mind to hush whats really going on within!
When I am left to hear what I think, I begin to hear the doubt, fear, negative, worry come bubbling to the surface.
What has happened with that is before coming into a transformation ministry Pastored by Juanita Gibbs, is that I would hear them and run with them!
Yes! Every doubtfilled, worrysome, negative, depressive, anxious faction that came to my mind was agreed with and fully accepted. But now under this kins of ministry she teaches on how to stop being so ruled by those factions contrary to truth of the word of God.
Say for example I would hear:
Thought — Response
Your ugly — You know thats true
Your dreams wont come true – Yup thats right
How will you do all this! — I have no idea
Your too sinful for God to bless! — Thats true He don’t bless evil
These are just for example sake, you probably get the idea with this now.
Since my pastor has been helping me become aware of my thoughts! And when I am alone no talking, no music that is when the work begins.
So example of transforming my inner voices:
Thought — New Response
Your ugly — I am fearfully and wonderfully made!
Your dreams won’t come true — Time is in Gods hand and he orders my steps
How will you do all this — Trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my understanding
Your too sinful for God to bless! — I am the blessed of the Lord Jesus paid the price for me I am coveres by His blood!
Before in the pre-inner life ministry those bad things would just keep me hindered. They were being fed by me agreeing with them and adding more for them to work with. But now with Pastors help, I am working to starve the old to kill it out and turn toward the new life provided in Christ to transform by the renewing of my mind and the spirit of my mind!
Those verses of Romans 12:1-2 and Ephesians 4:23 are foundational pillars for Reformation Developmental Center. For Pastors close workings to transform my soul I am forever greatful!
