What do you really believe about yourself, your position in life, or your future? If you really stopped to listen to the thoughts going on in your head, what are they speaking over your mind right now?
What do you think about yourself when you wake in the morning? Do you ever stop and listen to your thinking ‘speak’ (the talk in your mind)? Unless we take a moment to identify it, we will never be able to change what needs to be corrected.
In the mornings I am studying the practice of contemplative prayer where you can literally bring all your thoughts and not assign them any judgement. Bring them surrendered into the presence of God. It is incredible what our brains have going on up there. When you still yourself you get to recognise some of these patterns.
But when you get out into your day to day again, it is more difficult to stay mindful of what is going on in your mind.
That is why I was trying to keep this journey in a rhythm that did not have the striving, but more the mindfulness and intention.
The daughters of Z had so much going on as they ‘came forward’ for what was rightfully theirs. I do not know if their steps were fast snd strong and determined, or weak, vulnerable and slow.
What I do know is that even in their walking they carried who they were with them. They had a status attached to who they were as women, they had pressure to stay small and restrained, they had inadequacies to overcome, and they had religious mindsets to break.
Romans 12:2 2Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.
