We have all had the bad seasons; the tough and discouraging times in our lives. During those times, it’s very easy to be tempted to talk about how unlucky we are or how bad things really are.
Maybe you just got out of a really long relationship.
Maybe you visited the doctor for a routine checkup to find out you have cancer.
Maybe a loved one recently passed away.
Maybe you’re in financial trouble.
Whatever it is you are facing right now, please understand this: The more you talk about something, the bigger it becomes in your mind. The bigger it becomes in your mind, the more it takes over your whole entire life.
Instead of focusing on the negative and telling ourselves how bad things are, we have to make a strong stand and say, “No, this challenging situation is not going to bring me down. I am not going to let fear override all of the beauty that surrounds me. I am blessed and highly favored. I am a victor, not a victim.”
Even if we can’t see how things will play out, we have to start speaking victory over our lives, not defeat.
