Words are important to me because they speak either life or death. But I noticed lately that the things that I have been praying about I haven’t been speaking much life into them. I want a better marriage but sometimes I fail and I speak badly about myself. I want to finish my book but doubt that anyone would care about what I write. I want to write for a magazine company or someone to get my writing skills up but doubt that anyone would want me to write for them. I do admit lately I have been feeling down, but that is no excuse to not speak life into my situation. If I continue to speak death over my situation well it’s going to die. But if I speak life over my situation who knows what could happen. Just because your not where you want to be doesn’t mean that it’s not going to happen. God hears my prayers but I need to trust him. If you’re going through something speak life no matter how hard it might seem.

  1. “8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. 10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”— Philippians 4:8-13 (NIV)

  2. Please speak life into your marriage. Please write your book and believe in yourself and success of book. I was discouraged and felt same about my book but I took it out today and said “Go for it.” I am encouraging you to go for it. I have no doubt you have support from your fellow bloggers. I promise to buy a published copy…

  3. CF – Thank you for writing this. Satan is the one who wants to tear us down, to get us discouraged, and to get us to give up. I let him beat up on me many times over my life, and i let it impact who I was and what I did. The Lord early on in my life had given me a call similar to the one in Jeremiah 1 about going to people and saying to them whatever God commands me to say to them and not being afraid of them. And, I did, but then the opposition would pile on and I would get afraid and I would cave and give up. And, then the Lord would encourage me to get back in there and I would and then the same thing would happen again. And, I did this on and off for many years before the Lord finally helped me to understand fully who HE IS and all that HE CAN DO in me and through me for his glory.

    So, it isn’t me doing it, but it is HIM at work in and through my life. I just have to rest in him, listen to him, follow his lead, do what he says to do, and fight off the enemy in the strength of the Lord, and keep moving forward no matter how many times and different ways the enemy of our souls tries to attack me and to attempt to get me to retreat. So, I would encourage you to rest in the Lord, let him lead in your life, do what he says, and rely on his strength to see you through every situation. Shake off those lies of the enemy and put on the truth and go forward in the strength of the Lord in doing whatever it is that God has called you to do.
