God Blessed Morning Family!
In the mental health field there is a theory used called Narrative Theory which is based on the idea that we become the stories we are told about ourselves as well as the stories we tell ourselves. Narrative Theory allows the client to work on changing the story and becoming the character they define in the new story. This process is highly successful for one reason and that is because our words have power and when we string together several positive words about ourselves we begin to become the story we create about ourselves. This is not about changing the past because nothing can be done about that but it is about reforming and structuring the present and future to create the Life we desire and ask God to bestow upon us. Some people are of the belief that we are not to Pray for ourselves for it is seen as selfish, but if you don't pray for healing how can you help others. If you remain in a negative state of mind the only thing you are capable of giving out is negativity. "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds." Romans 12:2 Change your words, change your thoughts, change your story and your actions will follow those words and Life will become the story you tell about yourself. No one Knows you better than you do and no one Knows your story better than you do, create the Narrative you desire and your Life will not only follow but become the story you tell. Pray for God to help you change the story into a positive one for He is the only one who not only Knows your story better than you do, but He is the only one that can change your story through Prayer and the second you begin to change your story He is the only one that can bestow it upon you in an instant. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
