Speak It Into Existence
Life throws all kinds of curve balls. What I have learned through the years is that if you allow things you can't change to affect your attitude then you will always have a negative attitude. Life in general is out of your control, so the best thing to do is just smile.
My mom always told me “fake it until you make it.”
I never really understood what she meant by that until I got older. She was saying if you walk like things are good and keep your head up with a smile, then things have no choice but to get better. When you expect negative things to happen they will. I’m sure you have heard the saying “if you keep looking for things to go wrong then things will go wrong.” Most of the time that phrase is used when someone is in a relationships and cheating or something of that nature is suspected.
However, I think that saying can be applied to life in general. If you go around saying the worse possible things then you are speaking those things into existence. For example, I always say "I wanted to get married and have a lot of kids by now", and the older I get I tell myself "it's too late to have as many kids as I wanted." But not only am I doubting that God will fulfill the desires of my heart, but I am also speaking negativity over my life.
See the thing is we want things to happen when we want them to happen, I said "by age 25 I would be married, by 28 I would start having kids, and by 32 I would have all 6 of the kids I wanted." But God had other plans. Speaking negatively about the things that you don’t have in life yet is one of the worst things you can do.
You have to speak these things in existence!
So, if you want to be a business owner, write a book, become a homeowner or want to get married you must walk like it has already happened! FAKE IT UNTIL IT HAPPENS! Putting yourself down is only going to prolong the process. In order to be a wife, you have to walk and act like a wife, to be a business owner, you must walk like a boss, to be a homeowner, you must walk like you already own that home.
If you are not already claiming what you want in life then you are already a step behind. Last week I talked about encouraging each other, but you can't expect anyone to encourage or support you if you don’t believe in yourself. If you don’t believe you can do it why would anyone else believe you could?
Stop doubting God, believe in yourself, and speak that thing into existence. Everything don’t happen when or how we want it to happen, but if you walk like its done and follow God it will happen!
