“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened.”

Luke 11:9-10

 Hello Sisters,  we are glad to have you here.

In this post, we will share a wall art Visualizer in a PDF file that you can download. God helped us create an affirmation art with some of the characteristics that God expects of us.

Let us understand the value of Visualization and Affirmations.

Affirmation is the practice of positive thinking and fostering a belief by writing down statements or phrases in the present tense. It’s the process of repeating new thoughts and images to rewire the subconscious mind for success. For this technique to be effective, repeat a set of positive statements or phrases by linking them to a particular feeling or idea, in this case, we have God and His Son Jesus Christ to look for and to be transformed by his word. 

The Holy Spirit is our bigger helper, I believe that if you wake up every day, read the bible and pray for the Holy Spirit to transform you according to his will, if you believe, he will fulfill the desire of your heart.

The brain is very powerful, and thoughts that are repeated over some time can turn into reality. 

Our subconscious mind plays a vital role in manifesting and achieving our goals, and many of our habits are controlled by our subconscious mind. So, in order to reprogram your brain for success, change your thoughts and habits.

Changing the way you think changes your perspective which changes how you act in the world. 

“For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.” Matthew 10:20

Jesus challenged people to change their thinking because regardless of how many times you read through the Bible if your mind doesn’t change, you will simply impose your biases and labels on the words you read.

“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;” Deuteronomy 30:19

“As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the Lord: “My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your offspring’s offspring,” says the Lord, “from now and forever.” Isaiah 59:21

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8

The Good News: These verses serve as a reminder that we can trust in God to change us and this will help in our salvation and also in the lives of those is around us.

START BY VISUALIZING YOUR IDEAL SELF 

Well, we are followers of Jesus, so He needs to be our ideal Self. Christ’s personality is the key to our salvation. 

How can add this visualizer to your routine?

Here is an example of how I use this visualizer affirmation. 

  • I wake up and do my intentional prayer. 
  • After I pray for the Holy Spirit to guide my bible reading and show me what He wants to review then I read the bible. This can be your personal bible time. 
  • When I am starting to be ready for the day I hang the Visualizer Affirmations in my bathroom so as I prepare myself for the day I read a load of these affirmations looking in the mirror. 

The reality’s all the time when I go to the bathroom I see the Art wall and I repeat some of the Affirmations. 

This is helping me, and I pray for the Holy Spirit to transform me and every Sister that desires to be transformed. 

Remember Sister when we conform ourselves to God’s will we also need to make effort to change our ways, so this is a reminder of what we constantly need to do to change and if we see that some things only God can change, we put in His hands and we continue doing what we can do. Let us keep knocking on the door. 

“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened.” Luke 11:9-10

I hope you will be blessed with this Art.

Then those who feared the Lord spoke with one another. The Lord paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the Lord and esteemed his name.”

Malachi 3:16

STARTING TO JOURNAL

Hello Sisters,  we are glad to have you here.

In this post, with the help of God, we will share some ways and benefits of journaling.

Let us understand the value of putting pen to paper to know Christ more through the Word and also know us. If we’ve reached a point in life where we find ourselves asking, “Who am I in Christ?” some self-discovery can help us get to know ourselves a little better.

Self-discovery might sound like a big, intimidating concept, but it’s just a process of:

  • examining your life
  • figuring out what’s missing
  • taking steps toward fulfillment

We need to take time to meditate about our ways and why we are in the way are, and what needs to change, improve or take away from us.

Journaling is also an amazing way to talk to God. 

There’s no better time for self-exploration than the present, so here are some tips to get you started.

START BY VISUALIZING YOUR IDEAL SELF 

Well, we are followers of Jesus, so He needs to be our ideal Self.

Maybe our life has gone pretty smoothly according to the influences of our parents, teachers, friends, and others. Some influences help us to be like Jesus but some probably not.  So now is a great opportunity to filter everything that does not make us walk the path that God left for us, and let it go away.

Let us start asking ourselves things like:

  • Where am I in Christ? 
  • What do I need to change?
  • Where do I need to improve?
  • What needs to go? (This can be habits, sins, relationships, etc.)
  • What is my calling? 
  • Am I living to fulfill my will in this life or to fulfill the will of God?

    Then, apply these questions to all areas of your life.

Sisters, the questions will come as a raining traying wash our ways. Please be open to this cleanness.

The answers to these questions can give you a starting place. If you get stuck, go to the word of God and he will answer you. 

ASK, SEEK, KNOCK

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8

Putting pen to paper helps us sift through thoughts, struggles, questions, and frustrations. As we write, pray, and read the Word of God, the Holy Spirit speaks the truth, answering questions, and clears the clutter of our heart and mind so we can more fully see and follow Christ. God will soften our heart, quiets our soul, and revive our minds. 

“even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” John 14:17

JOURNALING REMINDS US OF GOD’S FAITHFULNESS.

Journals also serve as reminders to our soul of God’s faithfulness. It is amazing to see all that God had transformed us.

Not only do we believe the Bible to be the true, unfailing Word of God, but we can have records of how the God of the Bible has been faithful to us and others, even in the moments where we were unable to see his hand at work. This is vital during times of suffering, trial, and doubt. These records are testimonies that God won’t forsake you in your wounding and suffering. Rather, he will move, he will be faithful, he will fulfill his Word in your life.

“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.” Ps. 138:8

JOURNALING HELPS US FOCUS ON THE WILL OF GOD.

Often, when we come to read the Word of God, we come with a distracted mind. Thoughts, worries, and to-do lists come like rain in my mind, fighting to be front and center in our attention where Jesus rightly deserves first place. Journaling, while we are reading the Word of God, enables us to focus on Him, bring us thoughts in alignment with what He has said and expected of us. 

Remember Sisters, as we meditate on the Word of God, journal,  and pray, we are building a deep relationship with God, which, over time, transforms our heart and life. 

“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26

JOURNALING IS A HELPFUL DISCIPLINE THAT KEEPS US COMING BACK, DAY AFTER DAY, TO THE WORD OF GOD.

Each day when we open our Bible with the desire to know God better, we are living a gospel-centered life, where His presence abides in us throughout the day. 

Discipline is obedience in the Christian life. It is showing our Father that we are wholly His. and it shines a light on what matters most in this life. Specifically, journaling while learning the will of our Father and His son Jesus Christ, we start to feel hunger for the deeper things of Christ. After all, the more you taste Jesus, the more the world will lose its flavor. You’ll start craving him more than any other thing. 

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6

So, we invite you to Open the Word today, Put a pen to paper and pour out our heart before God as He pours his Word back in.

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10–11

We’ll always reap a harvest when we read the Word of Truth, and over time, we’ll have a physical record of how God, all along, was changing us. 

I hope this message can encourage you in your own journey.
