Reblogged: 5 Lies You Probably Tell Yourself Everyday


They say “the most dangerous lies are the lies that you believe about yourself. ”

Oftentimes, I was experiencing some sort of struggle over things in life that I know I have control over with, like the things that I should've done, and behaviors that I need to improve but was too sluggish to make a move and to make progress. There are also thoughts about life and some predicaments that I know I have the answers and I know to whom I should trust and believe, but then sometimes, there's a certain force that is holding me back. Well, its true, Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into.
And it is also true, that the mind is a real magician. And maybe we should try to examine our mind and ask ourselves, "What lies am I telling myself that are holding me back?" 

I thought of sharing with you a list of lies that you should be aware of and avoid, a food for thought from The Praying Woman:

There’s always tomorrow

“Tomorrow is not promised to anyone” so why put off tomorrow what you can do today?” However, experience has taught me two valuable lessons. 

#1- Life’s too short to hold grudges
#2- Time waits for no one

I can’t

Philippians 4:13- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. 

I was watching TV the other day and stumbled across a documentary about an armless woman who could do everything that we could do with our hands, except she does them with her feet… and let’s not forget about the Paralympics. These are people who have ( in spite of what we may see as a “handicap”) refused to let their physical challenges stop them. How awesome is that? 

I won’t

Never say Never. It’s easy to say what you won’t do if you’ve never had to. It’s easy to judge others for doing things we may not like or approve of. I don’t mean that we should never make judgements. Obviously, we make judgements every day. We judge between right and wrong, dangerous choices from safe ones, etc. But we should not judge others in a hypocritical way. I have a friend who 2 years ago, was very critical of one of our mutual friends for choosing to stay with her husband after infidelity, 2 years later… guess who’s in that same boat? EXACTLY! Never say Never.

Nothing is going right

WRONG! Romans 8:28 says that "all things work together for good to those who love God". This means that no matter how bad everything seems, God is able to turn your situation around for His good. For His purpose. For His glory! All you have to do is stay faithful and watch Him work miracles in your life. 

God never answers my prayers

1 John 5:14 “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us”. 

Notice, the scripture does not promise that God will give you everything you want, when you want it. It clearly says… anything you ask according to “His” will. Maybe He didn’t give you the job you were praying for because He knows you won’t be happy there. Maybe the romantic relationship you’ve been praying for, God knows is not the one for you. Trust His will.

It was indeed a wonderful message for today. And let me add to this a thought that moved me just this morning during our regular Sunday fellowship about our series break, "God's NOT Dead..." One of the lies we probably tell is "Believing in God but living as if He doesn't exist". 

Oftentimes, we believe that God exists and yet it is concealed from the sight of our everyday lives. I do struggle about this too. But let me just remind you about the scriptures, to live in the likeness of God by doing what is pleasing to Him, and living with purpose for his Honor and Glory. That part was never easy, but remember that God has begin a work in each and everyone of us. We are a work in progress and He doesn't stop until it is finished.

YES, He is Alive and God has bigger and better things in store for you!
