10.16.18 – Why focus on what I’m not?

I noticed a few days ago that I often focus more on the things “I’m not” rather than on the things that “I am”….

“Oh, that’s not me…”

“Oh I don’t like this or that…”

“I don’t do this…”

“I wouldn’t do a thing like that…”

“I’m not….”

Then it hit me that I know more about the things that I’m not rather than knowing about who I am. What good does this do?

So today I will think on the things the Word says I am –to think on these things and to agree with these things. Maybe someone out there needs to be reminded of these truths as well…

I am chosen of God, holy and dearly loved. (Col 3:12, 1 Thessalonians 1:4)

    1. Lately it’s like, “ok, Lord – what are You going to teach me today?” 🙂 Thankful that He is opening my eyes to these things.
