#WednesdayWords – I AM

Today’s #WednesdayWords come from Pastor Joel Olsteen, during his appearance on Oprah’s Life Class which airs on her network – OWN TV.

“Whatever follows the I AM is going to come looking for you…

Watch what you say!  Be mindful of what you are bringing into your life, change your negative I AMS into positive ones.  Focus on your assets rather than your liabilities.” ~

What are you saying about yourself?  When I took part of this live taping via Internet of Oprah’s Life Class with Joel Olsteen about a month or two ago, it was such an affirming time in my life.  The information that was given that day was so powerful, and really made me stop and think about the words that come out of my mouth after saying I AM…what have I been saying about myself or to myself whether consciously or subconsciously, whenever limiting beliefs or words that don’t support or encourage the best ME have flowed out of my mouth?

That day I decided to become more conscious of what follows my I AM…only positive, uplifting and affirming words follow my I AM, and if by chance something negative does slip out, I immediately dismiss it and change it into a positive.

Imagine what our conversations would be like with others and ourselves if we just took the time to be more mindful of what follows our I AMS🙂

In Love,

#WednesdayWords…F%ck it, I’m Over Fear!

Today’s #WednesdayWords are on FEAR, I was blown away by these words and felt as if they were speaking directly to me.   I hope these words touch someone and help them face as well as move past their Fears.  Enjoy, and allow these words to assist you in reaching new heights – soar like an eagle:)

Seeing Miracles Every Day – A Course in Miracles wrote:

Face some fear today that you know is holding you back, be it major or minor.  It may be a conversation you need to have, or deciding to take charge of a situation.  Examine why you are afraid or hesitant.  Ask God, Spirit, the Power of the Universe to help you release that fear and see the possibilities beyond it.  Fear is ego.  It imprisons us as it seeks to keep its own power over us.  Love negates fear.  When we allow God’s pure love to shine on us, without judgment on ourselves, our fears begin to go away, and we see and feel our own strength.  Let heaven shower adoration on you to release one fear or negative thought today, so that you can be lighter and brighter.
