Talking to Yourself

Day after day disciple, we’re going to be dealing with difficult emotions as we walk this narrow road.

Along with sharing your problems (and so halving them), keeping healthy rhythms for life, seeking advice for the big ongoing issues…

You absolutely need to make use of the “preach to yourself” tactic.

David drills us on this.

Feeling lost and needy? You write the song, “The Lord’s my shepherd, I shall not want.”

Your emotions saying to you, ‘not really up for this today’? You say to them, “Bless the Lord O my soul, and all that’s within me, bless his holy name”.

Shortcuts looking sweet? Time to declare,”Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits”.

This is a weapon disciples have successfully made use of for millennia, don’t be shy about either reaching for it today, or making it a go-to strategy on an ongoing basis.
