“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”
Romans 10:10 NIV
I’m so glad people can’t hear my internal dialogue. Don’t worry, I’m not thinking mean or crazy thoughts! But some of the thing I dream to accomplish or big goals I have are laughable.
But I’ve learned something very powerful over the past few years. Sometimes you just have to let it out. Sometime, you just have to say out loud what you want to do and I’ll take it a step further, you have to TELL YOURSELF that you will do it.
I could believe in heart all day that I could run a marathon, but if it stays just a thought, it may never turn into action. But when I tell myself and others that I am going to run a marathon, that confession holds me accountable to make sure it happens.
Maybe you need to tell yourself that you are a great mother, an accomplished author, a tidy person. Just taking that thought and making it a statement can change everything.
