Woo hoo Day 12 of my brain detox!
Transparency is sometimes difficult but as God has called me to stand on stage, for the sake of other people being healed my life is an open book.
I am working on five different fears but doing one at a time …
1. Fear in relationships
Lies I believed: men lie, cheat and leave
Cause & Effect: I do not feel safe
These lies became part of my reality as early as 10 years old by people I loved and trusted …..
The lies and belief system that I developed were based on actions of others affected the way I felt in relationships, it impacted the way that I saw myself and set my relationships up for failure.
Thank goodness for God and the way he created our brains, neuroscience reveals that we can literally reverse damage and create new defaults!
Several days ago, I asked God for the perfect scripture to stand on in building my new thought process ..
Galatians 4: so you are no longer a slave, but a son/daughter, God has made you an heir !
Today God revealed that the truth is we are all subject to be hurt or disappointed unintentionally. The difference for me today is that I don’t have to live in fear and I can believe the best in someone. IF I do get hurt I can trust God that I will recover and that he will work all things together for good.
I no longer have to be a slave to that fear, those thoughts, feeling unsafe.
What the enemy has meant for my harm and my destruction, the Lord will use for good.
Today I have a better chance of going into a relationship and feeling safe and allowing myself to experience true joy where my happiness was stolen in the past because of fear……
I have shared that I can POLL an audience and 99% have experienced fear, rejection and abandonment.
You can reverse the thoughts and triggers and emotions from those events and we can truly live out John 10, that Jesus has come that we may have life and have it more abundantly!
