Read these 7 powerful scriptures to change your life.
Do you ever feel like you’re in a battle with your mind or maybe you just keep returning to the same old habits?
You want to do the right thing, but keep doing the wrong things instead.
Paul talked about that in Romans 7:15-20
15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good.
17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me…
Is the affair recovery process making you weary?
As unfaithful wives, we can easily get discouraged when we’re trying to do the right things, but we keep getting
sucked back into our old ways and behaviors even- though we don’t want that!
Or, maybe you’ve ended the affair, and feel like you’re doing everything you can to restore trust and heal your marriage,
but you’re both still struggling to get past the affair.
If you’re a betrayed husband, all of this healing could seem like it’s taking forever for you too, while your emotions
are usually up and down multiple times in a day.
Some days it just feels like things will never be better.
But don’t despair.
Every little change you’re making and every good decision you choose all adds up, in time, to a changed life for the better.
But we also need to use this time to our advantage and not just hope things will get better.
In my last 2 posts, I taught about the 5 ways your affair started in your thoughts.
And also I broke down this Think-Feel-Act concept in what I call “The Bicycle Concept”, to make it easier to visualize.
In this post, I explained how it’s the real reason you can’t get over your affair.
I encourage you to read both of those posts after this one and really learn this important fact of how influenced
we all are by our thoughts.
The good news is, we don’t have to be victims of our thoughts anymore!
What you put before your eyes and in your heart, and especially what you allow yourself to meditate on (i.e. thinking deeply about),
will greatly affect the results you’ll get in your life.
That’s why I put together this list of 30 powerful scriptures to help you get your mind back in alignment with what
God says. When we think on His word, everyday, slowly but surely we’ll see our lives changing for the better.
This isn’t a quick, microwavable fix though, my friends.
We often want everything to happen fast, but most of the best things in life don’t work like that.
But I can confidently tell you, if you download the link and print out this whole list,
and really meditate on one verse a day, you’ll begin to see a shift in your thinking after 30 days.
Couple this with at least a few minutes in prayer asking Jesus for His strength and invite Him
into this mess to help you heal, and He’ll show up.
I can promise you that.
So to get the MOST benefit from this list, print it out and put in where you’ll see it everyday. You could even cut out a square a day
and put it on your fridge. Whatever will work for you. But the most important thing is to meditate upon it at least 3 times a day, if not more.
Meditate just means to:
Let it get in your thoughts and renew your mind daily. If you have time and want to read more of the verses around that one, then I encourage
you to do that too.
Replacing negative thoughts, with God’s word will begin to change you.
from the life you really want, just say the verse out loud over and over again if needed.
When we immediately replace those thoughts with God’s word, and HIS truth, those thoughts have to flee.
