I look forward to building bridges with my relationship with God, myself and others.
Since around April I have been going to a “Overcome Bipolar” small group and a “Supernatural Power of Transformed Mind” workshop each week. And they have been a great one two punch!
It’s been fun to see the mind renewed! (Romans 12:2). It is so fun to replace old thoughts with scriptural truth! It goes something like this:
Old Thought: In chains
New thought: I am redeemed by the blood of the lamb! (Ephesians 1:7)
Old Thought: God is angry
New Thought: God is kind and merciful! (Psalm 103)
Old Thought: sinner
New Thought: I am a saint! (Romans 1:7)
Old Thought: weak
New Thought: Be Strong in the Lord and in His Might (Ephesians 6:10)
Old Thought: bipolar
New Thought: But we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16)
I could go on and on, but meditating on His word about what God actuallty says about us continues to be amazing. It is so important for us to know our position in Christ, identity in Christ and all the spiritual blesssings we have in Christ.
Claim your true identity in Christ! It’s yours for the taking!
And let me say the “old self” burnt some bridges with some friendships.
Fear of commitment, not submitting to authority and not being able to trust caused the “old self” to want to run at away when things began to get serious.
I am so grateful and thankful that our God is a God of restoration. I look forward to partnering with God in restoring those relationships.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, thank you so much for being here and Father I pray that people claim their identity in Christ. Help us to call out the gold that you see in them. When some feels broken, remind them that they are your masterpiece. When someone feels defeated, remind them they are victorious in Christ. When someone doesn’t feel blessed, that they are blessed with all the spiritual blessings in Christ. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen.
