good stuff for always

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body. Ephesians 4:25

  • Learn to express appreciation.
  • Know that how we treat others shows our spiritual maturity.
  • Religious activity doesn't impress God, how we treat others does.
  • We may be thinking we're saying the right thing but pay attention to how you say it.
  • Ask yourself before you say or do something that may not be kind or gentle -- Is this necessary?
  • Never make a person feel unimportant...Be understanding.
  • Proverbs 11:17- A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings trouble on himself.
  • Don't rely on people, on things, on education, on whatever that is not of God.
  • God is not looking at everything you've done wrong...He's looking at what you're doing right.
  • Feel good about who you are.
  • Be free from the heaviness that tries to burden you down because the enemy will always tell you that you're not doing enough, you're not good enough...Quit believing his lies!
  • When you are positive with yourself, you are in agreement with God.
  • Stop bringing up what God has alraedy forgiven and forgotten.
  • God is focused not on what you are, but what you can become.
  • People focus on the bad choices you've made, God does not.
  • You may have weaknesses but know that God is pleased with you even though you are not perfect.
  • When you feel God about who you are you make the enemy furious. You've been approved and accepted by God.
  • Some of us have come along way...So live a life that is pleasing to God, one that is full of integrity.
  • Look away from everything that distracts you from God...people, things, etc. God changes us little by little. We're all at different stages.
  • God's power shows up the greatest in our weaknesses...Lean on His strength. Ask for His help. We need to trust that he is there always.
  • Don't let the condemning voices take root...Don't listen to them! Get rid of that junk and keep moving in a positive direction.
  • Whatever you send out in life is ALWAYS going to come back to you. What are you sending out? Make sure that you're sending out good things about yourself.
  • What a tragedy to go through life being against yourself...Feel good about who you are. Sometimes we condemn ourselves so much, nobody else has to. It's okay to enjoy your life feeling good about who you are. When you don't, you can't fully experience a relationship with God.
  • We've been chosen. Don't believe the lies that only shows you defeat. Quit overanalyzing yourself and picking yourself apart.
  • We can either bless our lives or curse our lives.
  • Be extremely careful what you allow out of your mouths because your words are determining the directions of your life.
  • Are you saying good things or just negative things? When you say more negative, you are setting the limit on your life.
  • Get on the offensive instead of the defensive.
  • The best eraser you could ever find is God's word...Let go of the negative junk that goes against what He has in store for you.
  • There is creative power in your words.
  • Romans 4:17 -- (paraphrase) Don't talk about the way you are, talk about the way you want to be.
  • YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IT AND THEN YOU'LL SEE IT. Call in what you need from God.
  • Make positive declarations on your life.
  • Don't use your words to describe your situation, use your words to change the situation. Declare LOVE and declare JOY every day!
  • God is fighting your battles for you!
