I have done a variation of this . I write down what I find in the Bible about God’s nature. He is merciful. He is forgiving. And being His child I set an intention to imitate Him. Today I will show more mercy. Today I will practice forgiveness.
For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:29
I love this! Thanks for sharing Victoria!
Trying this today. Thank you.
So glad you’re joining me again!
Writing down the degrading lie about myself and crossing it out, is empowering. When I wrote the truth, it gives me confidence in myself and a good reminder. I also put the daily quote on the home screen of my phone so throughout the day I read your quote. I love that I am able to have the daily reminder of what I am to do and rid myself of negative thoughts.
It’s so fun to see your name & comments again Ginny! I miss you!! Come visit me soon!
Wow! This is powerful and exactly what I needed this morning- thank you! I wrote that I felt ugly and worthless, but the truth is that I am made in the image of God and he has given me worth.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV
This 30 day challenge is setting up to be awesome! Thanks for doing it!
Thanks for sharing your experience & this scripture Kate! It’s so encouraging to read others experiences & know that we’re all in this together & cheering each other on!
I love this quote! I taught a lesson to the Young Women on this a few weeks ago! I use this exercise all the time to learn truths about myself — because Satan speaks to us in lies, I can turn what he says around, and learn another truth about myself!!!
I did this today and it taught me that I am not how people talk to me. I am not a piece of trash or worthless. I am a confident woman who deserves to be treated as such. Yet, how can others treat me like that if I do not treat myself that way? I really need to remember this: I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
I did this with my son who has been feeling stressed/ bad— and it was a big success!! Thank you:)
Writing a lie and changing it by a truth was eye opening and definitively empowering. I was aware during the day of various lies that came to my mind and immediately changed them by thruths. It Is a great excercise that I will be doing today also. Thanks!!!
When I first read the experiment I really thought it was going to be lame. (sorry!)
But too my surprise it really did seem to help me deal with my negative attitudes lately. I know they are lies and I have wonderful people like my bf and my family telling me that everyday, but I just couldn’t believe it. The lie I wrote was that I feel useless. The truth I wrote was that I can do a lot of great things. I may not be able to do a lot of things I wish I could do, but the things I am capable of are pretty amazing right now!
