Defeating negative self talk. Stop and think about the conversation running through your head on any given day. Chances are that in the span of a few seconds you can talk yourself out of any positive change you want to see in your life. Small changes like setting the alarm for F3 or major life changes that you know are good for you can be easily dashed by that internal voice that say “I’m not strong enough, not smart enough, don’t have the drive or energy to make this happen.”

Bullshit.

Here is the truth, own it: You are a well loved son of God and he wants good things for you, just like you want good things for your own children. He has given you the power of the Holy Spirit to walk with you each and every moment of your time here. Grab a hold of that power, ignore the negative self talk live your life pursuing the good things your Father has set before you.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Control.  Some things are within and some things are not within our control.  Coming up the hill for the last time this morning my SSHs were very sloppy, low energy style.  I realized midway through them that I was in control of the way I performed them and I better make a better showing for myself.  I was in control and I could just go through the motions or I could do them for my best benefit.  I was in charge of the impact they had.

Sometimes I get the false impression that I control things that are really bigger than me or my capabilities.  I remember a time when a very well know company did something I personally did not agree with.  Although I did not own any of the company’s stock, I called my financial adviser and told her to never invest my money in the company in the future.  A few weeks later another company began acting like an activist for a particular cause that I did not agree with so I called my adviser and informed her to sell the shares in my portfolio.  It happened again last week.  But this time I let it go and didn’t make the call to “sell.”

Why my different reaction this time?  I’ve become aware of my lack of impact, my lack of control.  I need to focus on what I can control, and let go of the things I cannot .  Yes, I do need to hold to morals rooted in God’s expectations.  Yes, I do need to stand up against sin and evil of others … and myself.  And finally, yes, I need to let God be God and let him dish out the wrath.  Vengeance is His, He will repay.  Jesus summed it up for me when He said that all the law can be summarized in two commandments, love God and love others.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I added a short thought for the day as I was driving in this morning.  Motivation was a problem for me as I’ve just completed two exercise related goals – Goruck Light and Hardship Hill.  It reminded me of 35 years ago when I hit my goal of a sub 40 minute 10K run on my first attempt.  Took me several days back then to be motivated to continue my training regimen.  The lesson is to always have a goal or goals.  As Snorkel said, “Always have a WHY.”

The second thing I originally planned is based on a Christian song with the words, “fully known and loved by You.”  The you is capital and it is amazing that our God is so loving that He loves us, yet He is really the only One who truly knows everything about us.  Everything.  He knows me more that my wife after almost 45 years of marriage.  He knows me more that any child, grandchild, friend, neighbor, … anybody.  Yet He loves me.  What a gift!  What grace!  What an example for us all!  As Jesus said, all the law is summed up in two commandments.  Love God. Love each other.
