Changing My Mind

I have suffered under the spirit of poverty for almost my entire life and I've been dealing with a poverty mindset lately.  In a nutshell that means that I have  been focusing on what I don't have (physically, spiritually, and mentally), as opposed to what I do have. Wealth, in all areas of my life, is my inheritance from God. He did not send Jesus to earth to die on the cross so I could be broke, busted and disgusted. He sent him that I may have life and have it to the fullest. You and I have to love ourselves as much as God loves us. We have to change our thinking to change our lives. Once we do that it will be easier to realize that we deserve ALL good things and allow God to restore all that the devil stole from us a hundred fold!

To be totally  honest, I have refrained from sharing because I am so afraid of what others may think of my blessings. How silly is that?? I'm worried about what OTHER PEOPLE might think about the things GOD has blessed myself and my family with! Others may not understand my journey or think that I am worthy to recieve all that God has for me, which in turn leads me to believe that I'm not worthy. Even writing this I feel the need to explain myself to get approval  from others and their "permission" to have what God has given and to enjoy it fully. Guilt and faith are opposing forces. This is not how God wants me to live. The Lord has been teaching me that I am to be confident in who I am and realize that I deserve everything and more that He has given and will give me. I do not need the approval of man for what God has brought forth. He will not set me up for failure.

I don't know about you but sometimes I feel like God will bless me just to take it away and "keep me humble". That is a total lie. It all stems from the poverty mindset. God loves me and wants me to be healthy and prosper, even as my soul prospers (3 John 1). I have to work on getting my soul ( which is my mind, my will and my emotions) lined up with God's will FOR me and His idea OF me. That means casting down wrong thinking and filling my mind with truth, which is God's word. I haven't documented much of it, which I plan to change that from this day forward, but the Holy Spirit has been transforming my my mind and changing my thinking . My prayer has been to be filled with the thoughts and ideas of God. I am learning that there is no room for the lies of the enemy in a mind that is focused on Christ. I am a child of God and the blessing of Abraham is on my life! It is on yours too! Just believe and recieve it!


I apologize that I have slacked on sharing my journey. I have a lot to tell you, so stay tuned!!
