Who does God say we are?

GOD SAYS WE ARE HIS CHILDREN. He made us. He made us out of His own image. Just think about how awesome that really is. The Bible does not say that He made anything else out of His image, just mankind. That makes us very special. He made us with free will. He did not want robots. He wants us to choose to love Him. He has given us the Bible in which He talks to us. It tells how much He loves us. In it He gives us guidelines on how to live our lives. He also tells us how to treat each other. There are godly men and women who have laid the groundwork for our walk with Him. But you also find how people struggled. His love is greater than I can fully comprehend. But I do know that He created us all with a plan in mind. We each have a purpose. Some of us might have to look a little harder than others but it is there waiting for us to claim it. God has made you who you are for a reason. What might it be? What job is waiting to be done by you?
"…And all of you are children of the Most High."-----Psalm 82:6 (NKJV)

Change is possible!!

Last week I talked about people giving you wrong information. If you have believed wrong information and just shook your head last week think about this. Change is possible! Changing your mind might take just a minute.  But changing your MINDSET is very difficult. Your mindset is the whole way you think. There are some steps you have to follow to make that happen. First, you have to be told by someone you trust that the bad information is wrong. Second, you have to believe the new information. Third, you have to receive it into your thinking.  Fourth, you have to say to yourself it is true. Lastly, you have to truly believe the positive and repeat it regularly. It is not an easy process but a doable one. Do not let negative words of your past and possibly your present dictate how you view yourself. An exercise for you, write down positive things people have said about you and branch out in your own mind for positive things. Keep them and read them
often. Hang with those positive people and dwell on what they say even if you think it is not all true. Most likely it is truer than you think. Write and let me know how the exercise turned out, I would enjoy hearing from you.

Don't believe wrong information!!!

From the time I was a child I knew who I was because of the information given to me. I was stupid, ugly, fat and would never amount to anything, a total failure. I was sure of those facts because the people that loved me told me so. As I was growing up it was confirmed over and over again. I never thought about questioning the information given to me by my family. I did work hard to change but it didn't seem to matter what I did the facts did not change. Deep inside I knew my family was right. I went to Bible College and Seminary not because I thought I was better than anyone else I just wanted to see if I could get smarter. I did not want to be stupid. I have proved that the information that was drilled in my head was wrong. Just because someone tells you who they think you are does not mean that is really who you are. Believe in yourself. Take a good look at who you are. Do you like who and what you see? I don't mean physically but who you really
are deep inside. If you don't like that person than change, the choice is up to you. Do not keep believing wrong information. It will drag you down and you are much to valuable to let that happen. Believe in yourself.

Praise for author Glenda L. Hunter

"The life of Glenda Hunter is an example of the life-changing possibilities within one. She uses her books to provide an account to the reader, a way to connect while allowing the reader to control the level of engagement of their senses. However, the woman, Glenda, wife, mother and grandmother telling her life-story fills the room. To listen to Glenda’s story is to engage one’s senses as they observe and sense her spirit fill a space and communicate to the listener, hope. Her life, her story, is one of captivating uncomfortableness. As Glenda speaks with the audience, the deep well of human resilience is present. Some might say, she is a manifestation of His hope, His light, through a series of events that demonstrates the revealed battle for her, her heart, mind and soul." ~  Dr. Rob Ward, Ph. D,  Psychology

Deep inside lies the true person that we are
On top of that person is put who people tell us we are
On top of that is who we think we are
What I find to win sometimes is who people say we are
Especially when it is negative
They pound it into your soul
They say it in a believable manner
Until it just screams at you
That is how you begin to think
Before long that is how you act
That is how you let people treat you
You become smothered under the weight
Do you need to let it forever take your breath away?
NO, I say, NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!
It is hard to push that garbage up and out
But it really can be done!!
But until then the person you really are is buried
This causes you to have a hard time finding it
Others might see that person peeking out
But you will not even recognize it if it stared you in the face
Who is that stranger people talk about, you might say
It is a person you do not believe exists
But your eyes are so tinted that realness does not show up
You believe the person you THINK you are is real
You think that because of misinformation
The information screamed at you is loud but incorrect
How to change that incorrect person you see
Replace it with the person others are saying they see
Let those words scream in your brain
Let those right things be so loud the wrong begins to leave
It would be great to happen over night
But the trueness of the whole thing is it takes time
But it is time well spent, to uncover the real person
The real person will probably be someone you will like
Give it a shot, what can it hurt
Start digging to find the real person that lies within
See who you are really meant to be
Oh person deep within come out, come out however deep
Keep pushing until the light you see
There really is sunlight for your weary eyes
See you soon the real me deep within.
