~I love knowing...


 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I started doing something a little different recently. It's pretty much identifying lies that I believe or have believed and then stating the truth. I'm a writing girl. I love making things that I can write down: lists, charts, poems, stories. Things like that. So anyway this is one of my more recent projects.

 I'm working for 100 things to write down and I think I'm somewhere around 75. The problem is I feel like I ran out, but I couldn't have there has got to be more! I think I'll try going through the Psalms to find some more. It's kind of like a game to me now. I'll sit in church and try to pick out more truths to write down that I hear from the sermon! Ok so the list...
I started it out by addressing it to God.

Dear God,

I love knowing-
  • that you will take care of me
  • that you love me
  • that you hold me in the palm of your hand
  • that you want me set free and set apart
  • that you always want what's best for me
  • that you desire my whole heart more than anything else
  • that you are faithful (my favorite!)
  • that you are good all the time
  • that you make shattered pieces into complete vessels
  • that you know everything about me
  • that I'm special to you
  • that I'm treasured by you
I would encourage ya'll to start a list of your own. Write down anything you can think of that is a promise of God. Then when Satan tries to put you down and get you to believe his lies, you can pull out your list and show him the truth while claiming it for yourself! Literally tell Satan. For example - No one really loves you - Satan that is a lie God loves me, even if everyone else leaves me He will not!
A good thing to do too, is to put down a scripture verse that backs it up. Sound fun? Any ideas to add to my list?

  3. Amen!!!!!!! What a great idea Heather. I think I'm going to have to start a list if my own. I've highlighted verses in my Bible that are God's promises to me, so it would be easy to create lists from there. Thank you for the encouragement!
