SPEAKING LIFE INTO YOUR I AM, is a book about tapping into the wisdom of Proverbs 18:21 by learning how to use your words to speak life into yourself. SPEAKING LIFE INTO YOUR I AM, is a book about affirming your worth and building the kind of self-esteem that emanates from within and that will carry you through the changing seasons of your life. SPEAKING LIFE INTO YOUR I AM, provides 25 Bible-based affirmations to help you breakthrough self-defeating limitations so that you can embrace your most authentic, actualized and resilient self.
SPEAKING LIFE INTO YOUR I AM, is about following Jesus’s example of affirming your identity. When Jesus said, “I am the light of the world,” he was defining himself and affirming his identity. Jesus was essentially saying: I know who I am! Throughout the Bible, Jesus says, “I AM” and then defines for himself who He is. Jesus describes himself as the way, the truth, the light, the resurrection, and the life. Over and over in the Bible, we see Jesus affirming His identity, starting with the words …I Am. Jesus knew who he was and he modeled an important Kingdom principle for us all: The importance of… SPEAKING LIFE, into your “self.”
It’s vital to the wellbeing of your soul and your spirit to break free of the notion that you need man's approval and acceptance in order to affirm your worth and speak life into your authentic identity as a child of God. In fact, relying on the approval of others for your self-worth, is a mental stronghold that robs you of your personal power. Here’s why: As human beings we were all made in the image and likeness of God. This alone gives every human being inherent worth and value, apart from anything that we could ever do, accomplish or achieve. But each of us has to come to this realization for ourselves so that we learn to speak life into our own lives.
There’s no question that in today’s media-saturated society even the most confident of people can be made to feel like they don’t measure up or like they have to pretend to be someone other than who they are authentically in order to be worthy of love and valued as a human being. And unless we develop a more Christ-like view of ourselves, we can end up spending our entire lives feeling like we are deficient. And this is no way to live, because your confidence and your self-esteem matters to God!
The question of your identity is a question worth exploring, because when you have a healthy perspective of your worth and value, then no one will ever be able to run up in your life and make you believe that you are inadequate in any way or unworthy of love. Regardless of what anyone has ever said to you or done to you or what you’ve been conditioned to believe; the deeper reality of your identity is this: YOU were created to reflect God’s glory, love, power, and light! You were created to SHOW UP for LIFE from your place of Power, Love and Resilience. You are already complete. You are lacking in NO THING! You have ideas worth sharing, talents worth multiplying, goals worth reaching for and dreams worth pursuing. But it all starts with knowing who you are.
