I believe. I believe in the power of the tongue.
~”Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”~Proverbs 18:21, ESV~
Words can either speak life or speak death over your life. As a child of God with bipolar disorder, I choose the words that I think and the words that I speak over my life. This is in order to build me up and not to tear me down.
I can say, “I will not accomplish my goal,” and remain in a stagnant or negative mindset or I can say, “I will accomplish my goal,” and move forward with a hopeful perspective.
A hopeful perspective, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, is a positive perspective. I press on towards my calling of the Lord, which is to serve the multitudes and the mentally-ill, through my writings as an author, in Christ Jesus.
A hopeful perspective, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, is a joyful countenance. I can be still and know that Jesus is my Joy, deep in my heart and deep in my soul, as I face trials and temptations that may come my way. As a child of God with bipolar disorder, I have already overcome the trials and temptations that come my way, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
In my first book to be released in February 2022, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil,” I talk about how I overcome my struggle with how to forgive my mother through the counseling process at my church. My counselor at my church takes me through the process of teaching me how to forgive my mother as I also learn to forgive myself in the process (My prayer is that if you are planning to buy a copy of my book, “A Victory Song: Beneath the Veil,” in February 2022 that it will bless your heart, mind, and soul as you read the story of my testimony of how I forgave my mother as a result of the counseling process. I encourage you to make plans to buy this book, if you have not, and let it bless your soul!).
Lastly, a hopeful perspective, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, is peace of the Lord. In the midst of my ups and downs in my emotions (when I feel happy, sad, angry, etc.), I surrender my emotions to the Lord and let Him deal with them in exchange for peace of God in my heart and in my mind. Praise the Lord and Hallelujah!
~”Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope.”~ Romans 5:3-4, ESV~
Keep calm and press on towards a hopeful perspective today! God bless you and grace and peace!
