This week's prompt is Self Talk. What is the 'tape' that goes around in your head? How often do you berate yourself for something that is said and done and can't be changed? What lies do you listen to and allow to direct your behaviour?
As a Christian I have an antidote to the negative self-talk that goes on in my head: I listen to God. He always tells me the truth. Sometimes He has to tell me more than once as I don't always believe it :)
But in the end He removes the corks that stop up my ears and speaks truth to me; truth that my heart recognises and my spirit holds on to. Truth that eventually drowns out the lies.
So remember: you are loved always, absolutely, and unconditionally. Grasp hold of that truth and believe it.
