*Alli’s quote was my “aha” moment! That’s exactly what I’d been thinking!
Even though I KNOW to loop the truth of God’s Word over and over in my mind,
I wasn’t diligent enough to make it a constant force!
The lies that I had believed for so long…
the lies that I believe halted my frequency of writing is that
I’m not learned or Holy enough to have any authority to speak about the Word of God
and what God had shown me in His word.
I wanted to write more boldly, with more authority, but I didn’t want to say the wrong thing,
or be perceived as twisting the Holy Word,
so, I just shut down.
THAT is what the enemy wants above anything; is to shut the mouths
of the children of God.
I see my sisters in Christ writing so much about the Word on the regular
and I want to get to that point of even daily writing when I get than inspiring
“Yes! Write THAT” moment!
It’s time to strip off the lies and deceit that we aren’t enough to share the Word of God
or dig deep and greatly share what God reveals!!
There is so much hope in the truth of God’s Word.
My first way of defeating the enemy and banishing false scripts is remembering who I am!
I find my identity in the covenant that I have with God through Christ.
Starting with Ephesians usually satisfies my soul.
Ephesians 2:1, 2:10, 2:13, 2:19, 3:16-19, 4:24, 5:8, 5:30
With the particular “false script” that I’m writing about, the Holy Spirit brings to my remembrance
a couple of men that walked with Jesus, and were still perceived as unlearned.
YET, they continued to spread the gospel and perform miracles in Jesus’ name.
That was the largest movement of the church EVER!
It was all because of WHO they knew and the intimate relationship and friendship they shared!
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were
uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had
been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13
But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. -1 John 2:27 (NKJV)
I’ve been so very blessed to start reading Alli Worthington’s newly released book, BREAKING BUSY!
There are some things that she shares about our thought life that is helping me to shift some things around in my head;
you know, like, renewing my mind!
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12:2 (NKJV)
For me, Breaking Busy isn’t about running out and purchasing a day planner or de-cluttering my desk.
It’s about my inner life; finding those things that make me stop and asking God to step in because I
trust Him to light every day!
If you’d ask anyone, I’m the least busy person known! Sure, I have a season right now that I’m running kids
all over the place, but those are just things that consume my time, not my thoughts.
This book is wrecking my little world in so many wonderful ways, and I invite you to order
I want to hear your feed back! What makes you stop doing what you KNOW God is prompting you to do because of fear?
How do you plan to banish false scripts?
Do you have Scripture as a ready defense against the lies?
Looking forward to chatting with you!
With Sword and Coffee,
