Waking Faith

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14)

“You Won’t Believe What She Did!”
“The One Thing We Never Told You”
“It Was the Worst Thing That Could Have Happened”

Seems like every time you turn on the news, the headlines are getting more and more sensational. “If it bleeds, it leads,” they say. And the news media is masterful at presenting things with maximum shock value — in order to grab people’s attention. The editor’s job is choosing a headline that will bait people into clicking. They’ll say anything to get you to read on!

This is what the enemy does, too. He’s always suggesting a bold, negative headline to summarize your day… your week… your life.

So let me ask you a question: Why would you let the devil occupy the editor’s desk of your life another day? Why would you let a pessimistic mindset distort the facts and steal your joy?

You can’t always control what happens in your story. But you can always choose your headline!

So let’s write some new headlines over our lives today!

I’M BLESSED!
I’M GOING TO MAKE IT!
I’M LEARNING!
I’M GROWING!
ALL THINGS ARE WORKING FOR MY GOOD!
THIS, TOO, SHALL PASS!

Any event can become an experience of grace — when faith writes your headlines!
