Using our thoughts and words as a way to put our dreams almost on auto-pilot is something that has become very real to me.
Since beginning The Woman’s School and working with a strategist, I have come to really see how much our mind has to do with who we are now, who we become and what we end up doing during our lifetime.
Have you ever wanted to step out of your mundane daily life and establish productive routines, a right mindset, and put your efforts into a dream you have somewhere deep in your heart? A dream of who you want to be and what you want to do with your life? Then only hours after deciding to take action, abandon that dream out of fear that you couldn’t really do it or it would never really come true anyway?
We often hope for an outcome or destination, but focus our thoughts and words in the opposite direction.
Teachings For Us On Thoughts and Words
Yes, I have heard many times that our minds are powerful and our words do truly become flesh. In other words, our thoughts and words will shape who we become and how we experience our life – good or bad.
These biblical teachings, are for everyone – whether you are a believer or not. Truth is truth and we can learn a lot by listening to it.
When King David prayed the Psalm 141:3 “Set a guard over my mouth, Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips...” He was not just making small talk. I’m guessing he knew the power of his words!
All through Scripture we are reminded of the power behind words. God brought the world and us out of nothingness and into being by command of words.
The Centurian believed that all Jesus had to do was say the Word and his servant would be healed – and he was! (Matthew 8:8)
Jesus asked the invalid at the pool in Jerusalem if he wanted to get well? And with words, Jesus told him to pick up his mat and walk – and he did! ( John 5:7)
The healing power of right words and obedience – which leads to an increase of faith – is demonstrated throughout the Bible!
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he...
This morning, I came across this verse from Proverbs and it made me really take time to think…
What am I speaking out loud? What am I spending my time speaking into flesh and reality? What am I keeping my mind busy thinking about? Is it in line with my desires and my dreams of who I want to be?
Do I look at the seemingly unmovable mountain in front of me and believe in my heart, think, and speak what I know to be the truth? Do I know and does my conversation sound like this mountain can be climbed or even uprooted and thrown into the ocean?
Or do I see the mountain far off in the distance and already decide I’m defeated and won’t even try?…
I’ve noticed that over the last couple of weeks after studying my course and meeting with my strategist, my intentional right words and thoughts are used to propel me. They literally guide me into a continued belief and faith in the ability for me to approach those high mountainous dreams and see them tossed into the sea. It becomes like a never-ending cycle of faith.
Dreaming With Our Thoughts And Words
I think that we have to realize that our dreams or the vision of who we want to become has to be in collaboration with our thought and words. Scripture makes this very clear!
One cannot go on hoping or flying in a direction they dream of while speaking negative words, turning wrongly, or thinking thoughts that are literally pointing in the opposite direction. This will just leave us with dreams unfulfilled and never ever experienced.
Whether it is in our marriage, our faith, our motherhood, our health, our ministry, our career, or who we show up as for the people around us each day – we have a deep responsibility in how these all play out.
The future life or person we dream of being will not just happen as we unconsciously stumble along hoping for the best. We must believe in our heart & mind, do not doubt, and speak it into life – into existence.
How To Foster Auto-pilot
Once we train our minds and words to speak ‘life’ into these dry bones or to correct the course of our rogue ‘life’ plane, we can then keep focus and move forward. It is when we intentionally put into place the habit of thinking, walking, and talking like we are definitely and truly in the process of reaching our destination that we begin to experience growth and movement as reality.
I think, when we can bring our mind, body, and mouth into agreement about our dream and goal, it is almost like setting up our very own guarantee. You may veer off course at times. But, the discipline of keeping your thoughts and words in line with your vision is our very own built-in autopilot.
This is first starts as an intentional action and then becomes an unconscious habit.
Thoughts and words are so powerful – and keeping these in line with your dreams and goals will always bring you back on course.
