Do you ever talk to yourself, silently or out loud? I know I do. I tell myself stuff all the time. Just last night I heard myself say, “I’m home alone”. And then I heard myself say, “No your’e not! That’s ridiculous! God is here with you. And further more, you’re not even home yet. Heaven is your home.” I just started laughing. God’s truth is so much better than mine – for so many reasons!
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14
I need time in God’s Word every day. I need Him to renew my mind so I can align my ideas and self-talk with His truth. I see my life and my circumstances differently when I see it through His truth.
After my ‘Aha moment’ last night, I no longer felt alone. Instead, I felt comforted as I rested in the fact that God is always with me. And when I thought about heaven as my home, my ‘joy radar’ started going crazy! Won’t it be wonderful when we get to heaven? No more tears, no more separation from loved ones, no more sin, no more death, eternity with our Savior.
So let’s be careful how we talk to ourselves. Let’s dwell on things worthy of praise. Phiippians 4:8
