An affirmation to say everyday:
The healing power of God is working in me right now. Eveyr day I get better and better in every way. Don't just learn from God's Word, but believe it will change your life. It is not as important how we start (our past), but how we finish. Don't let your feelings be a God to you. Try a thing you haven't done three times. Once to get over the fear of doing it. Twice to learn how to do it. And a third time to figure out whether you like it or not. Our past may explain why we're suffering but we must not use it as an excuse to stay in bondage.

No matter how much we know in any area there are always new things to learn and things we have previously learned that we need to be refreshed in. Seek His face and not His hand. God's love for me is perfect because it's based on Him not on me. So even when I failed He kept loving me. It is not that we don't have faith it is just that Satan is trying to destroy our faith with lies. Encourage everyone you meet with a smile or compliment. Make them feel better when you leave their presence and they will always be glad to see you coming. The absence of pain means death, so when something no longer bothers you, you've died to that thing. Be it unto you, even as you believe.
In God's economy, we believe first and then see. Compromise means to go just a little bit below what you know is right. It's just a little bit, but it's the little foxes that spoil the vine. No matter what you’re going through there's no pit so deep that God can’t reach in and get you out. Go home, and let all your relatives off the potter's wheel. You are not the potter! Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may be given a cactus, but you don't have to sit on it.

Well, actually I encourage you to pray for patience, but I'll tell you what you'll get TRIALS! God knows the mess we’re in when He calls us. His light shines greater through “cracked pots” than it does through those who have it all together. We must meditate on what God has done in our life instead of what we are still waiting on Him to do. Where the mind goes the man follows. Where there is a rotten root, there will always be rotten fruit. 1 Peter 5 - Be well balanced because Satan 'roams about like a hungry lion seeking who he can devour. Maybe you don't just have one Goliath. Maybe you have his whole family! If you can believe the God who is perfect loves you then you can believe that you are worth loving. Worry is a down payment on a problem you may never have The thing about secrets is they keep you in a prison. Once you share, WHOOSH, there is a release.
