Day 20 - Who are you

Psalm 19:14

14 May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Jeremiah 15:16

When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God Almighty.

Romans 10:8
But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming:

Psalm 63:5

5 My soul will be satisfied as with the richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will praise you

Today I will FILL my Mouth with words of Praise and I WILL BE SATISFIED !

"Like the women at the well, I was seeking, for things that could not satisfy..." (a song)

Day 20

I want my new habit to include this:

When I wake in the morning as I first open my eyes, I then place a smile on my face, I take a deep cleansing breath (taking in "Life") and then fill my heart with "thanksgiving" by S A Y I N G words of thankfulness and Praise to the Lord.

There you have it: Smiling, Speaking, breathing - "the joy of living".

We are what we are in our heart. This is scriptural and even scientific. (I'll post the scientific findings later)

TODAY: I choose to be healthy, Spiritually, Physically , Mentally

The Who Switched Off My Brain book by Dr. Caroline Leaf - discusses:

87% to 95% of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. What we think about affects us physically and emotionally. It's an epidemic of toxic emotions.

Emotions grow in the heart. But, the seeds of our emotions come from our thoughts. Our words fortify our thoughts and make them strong.

SOOOO, your "mouth" is really a product of what is in your mind and heart.
Filling our mouths with FOOD will never satisfy our souls. Filling our mouths with "Praise and Thankfulness"
will satisfy our souls. Therefore, remove seeking FOOD to satisfy. We can then eat food to FEED our bodies!
The Word of God to FEED our Souls!

I've had an event that has filled me with disgust, anger and bitterness. I KNOW what I must do. I know that
I can choose to allow this event to rob me of God's Joy and Blessings. BUT I CHOOSE to take it to the LORD
and ask for him to put my thoughts in check. When I put my "thoughts" in check and see if they are TRUE, LOVELY, of GOOD REPORT... Forgiving, understanding... then and only then my HEART will receive those
thoughts and be feed HEALTHY thoughts.
The only one that is being truly being hurt with these negative thoughts is ME! And I know that my actions
(if I don't go to the Lord and ask him to help me with these thoughts) will not glorify God.

Back to the essence of todays thoughts.

Proverbs 23:7

7For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he...

No amount of Channel or Prada can cover up an an ugly heart. When the mouth speaks - they are exposed for WHO THEY REALLY ARE. What is in your heart is WHO you are. What comes out of your mouth tells everyone
Who you are.

So this morning when I awoke.... I opened my eyes, smiled, took a deep cleaning breath and spoke "words of thanksgiving and praise".

I felt my heart was heavy - It caused me to seek feeding my soul before feeding my body.

THEN I sought to FEED MY SOUL - This must be my primary desire!
Then I sought to Feed my body with a healthy choice.
Then I sought to Feed my body with exercise "oxygen is food for the body"
Then I sought to Feed my mind with "Positive thoughts and knowledge"

A newer version of me!

Luke 5:37

37And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine

will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.

I've sought the Lord in this "21 day journey" to create in me a New heart, New Mind, New Body... so that it can be filled with a new wine! (the last supper where Christ said as he

took the wine... "this do in remembrance of me")

Salute! To your health and Wellness

This morning I listened to Joyce Meyers (great teacher)

She said "you can be pitiful or powerful" your choice - How can I ever feel sorry for myself when I serve a Mighty God of Love?
