Just Give it Up Already!!!

Whatsoever “Junk In = Junk Out” is a saying I learned while working on an electronic documentation system for the hospital. I have learned this phrase is not only true for computers but also humans. At times we can be our own worst enemy by filling our mind with negative thoughts which is the “Junk In” and these thoughts in turn affect our behaviors which becomes the “Junk Out”.

While we try to be positive we are bombarded both consciously and subconsciously with negativity. In turn, our actions begin to reflect these negative thoughts. Then before you know it our posture and appearance screams negativity with our slumped shoulders, down facing gaze, slow and non-purposeful gait, and even a scowl or a frown.

Of course about now you’re thinking…Not me, I always try to be positive and upbeat!!! Well, we all have been guilty of:

  1. Doubting Yourself
  2. Negative Thinking
  3. Fear of Failure
  4. Criticizing Yourself and Others
  5. Negative Self Talk
  6. Procrastination
  7. Fear of Success
  8. People Pleasing

Yep, we are all guilty!!! But, God does give us instructions on how we can turn our negative stinking thinking into the positive in Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

There you have it!!! So…

Just Give It Up Already

Give Up the Negative and Instead Think To Yourself “Whatsoever”

My Hiding Place

Where is she? We looked for what seemed like thirty minutes to find her. My mom was demonstrating how to hide in the event an intruder broke into our home. My sisters and I looked everywhere but we couldn’t find her anywhere. To our amazement she was right in front of us the whole time but we never saw her. Tucked under a pile of laundry on the sofa…Who would have thought to look in the clean laundry?

Do you ever have days when intruders break into your life and you wish you could just go away and hide from that negative personality, defeated behavior, or the one that sucks the life right out of you. Did you know you can hide while you are right in plain view? 

You Can Hide in Him!!!

You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. Psalms 32:7-8

When bombarded with trouble or negativity you can mentally go to your hiding place which found in God by mentally saying a prayer, quoting scriptures, and praying all while you are hearing the negative blah blah blah.

You do not have to live in your negative circumstances…He surrounds you with songs of deliverance!!!

I love the songs He Sings over me!!!

I love this song by Israel Houghton & Cindy Ratcliff called “Sing Over Me”

Sing Over Me

Once again I’m drawing near to worship as
you’re drawing me
Once again You lift my head
and lift my heart to heights unseen

In a moment I am in your presence
everything is clear
As I hear Heaven’s melody (oh ho)

As you begin to Sing,Over me
Songs of Deliverance
Lord cover me with your Mighty Hand
Sing over me, God of the Second Chance
Sing over me Once Again
(Oh oh ho…once again Lord)

Once again I’m drawing near to worship as
you’re drawing me
Once again You lift my head
and lift my heart to heights unseen
In a moment I am in your presence
everything is clear
As I hear Heaven’s melody

As you begin to Sing,Over me
Songs of Deliverance
Lord cover me with your Mighty Hand
Sing over me, God of the Second Chance
Sing over me Once Again.

Can You Hear Him Singing Over YOU…He is Your Hiding Place!
