I Wish I Were…

You fill in the blanks…We’ve all said it with varying degrees of sincerity.  Examples of your completion to the sentence:

  • X pounds lighter
  • more financially secure
  • better looking
  • Y years younger
  • More/less this or that

Where do these thoughts come from?  They come from a damaged view of self  borne out of days, months, years of lies being whispered to us by the enemy of our soul.  It has been stated that the greater frequency with which lies are heard, the more likely they are to be perceived as truth.

As we entire a time of reflection in our transition into the new year, I want to challenge you with 5 questions that may provoke some thought (and action) to make 2009 a better year for each of us.

Here are the questions:

  1. What lies have you decided to embrace about yourself?
  2. What are you doing to sabotage yourself to make the lies appear more true to/about you?
  3. When are you going to get angry enough to begin disputing those lies?
  4. What are some things you can begin doing that align with/demonstrate the truth of who/what God says you are (becoming)?
  5. What things are you willing to do in 2009 to become (and remain) more like Him than you were in 2008?

As we arrive at our destination in 2009, let us release the baggage we carried there, and pick up the truths and supporting actions of who God called us to be so that our lives are congruent with how He sees us.

“Also the weapons of the fool are evil; he thinks of wicked ways to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaks right. But the noble thinks noble things; and by noble things he shall stand.” (Isaiah 32:7-8)
