There are some days when you feel like nothing is going your way. When it is as though whatever you attempt falls through. In times like this, you are tempted to pause and compare your life with those closest to you. Like you need to come up with tangible proof that it’s definitely just you, going through such a hard time. So the next thing best thing you feel you should do is to whip out your phones and scroll through social media and go through the feeds of your contacts.
Before you do this again, stop and read this.
I know how overwhelming life gets(tell me about it), and how – if you don’t keep the faith, it is very easy to fall into anxiety attacks and deep sadness.
Dear Queen, when you are feeling beat up, say these positive affirmations to yourself and fiercely hold on.
POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS FOR WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU CAN’T.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13)
I am sure you’ve been in situations where you spill your visions to those closest to you – and they discourage you. Sometimes, outrightly laugh at those dreams you have.
Their response will question your ability and your capacity to see the vision through. They will ask questions like, ‘How can you possibly do this? Have you thought of the challenges you are going to face? No one has done this before. You can’t do it either’. Sometimes, we have the people closest to us tell us straight-faced, “I know YOU. And the YOU that I know, cannot do this, because you are too *insert the different reasons they gave to fuel your insecurities*
I know you were excited to share your vision and you thought they would be thrilled, but instead, they came bearing gifts of rebuff. Sis, you shouldn’t share your dreams with everybody. Sometimes keep it to yourself. I know you feel like, if you tell it to someone else, it gives that vision a fighting chance. Meanwhile, all they do is kill it.
Sometimes people won’t perceive your idea the way you do. It’s okay, the vision was never for them in the first place. It was given to you. It is your responsibility, and you have what it takes to manifest it.
The other reason why they discourage you is fear –
that comes from actual concern. Especially when they feel the idea is risky, it will demand a lot of sacrifices – or fear that comes from, unhealthy competition(if they feel they can’t do something like that, how can you sit there and think you can?)
Positive Affirmations to speak when you are not seeing the vision
“My vision is for an appointed time. It will not tarry, it will come to pass”.
Some days, you may be discouraged, because all that God told you would happen is not happening. The goal you had when you first began is not coming to pass. You may be tempted to just abandon ship and do something else – if this is what I am supposed to be doing, why is it so hard? Why am I not seeing any progress? How long before I start seeing manifestations?
Remember Habakkuk 2:3 “For still, the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If … Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry”.
“As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.” Genesis 8:22
“I am sowing my seeds now, and there is a time for harvest. Right now, I am sowing. I will enjoy my harvest.”
SELF-AFFIRMATIONS TO SPEAK WHEN IT FEELS LIKE NOTHING IS WORKING IN YOUR FAVOUR
There are seasons of life, and sometimes you may find yourself in a season where everything is good, and you are basking in God’s love. Other times, it looks like absolutely nothing, nada is working. You are being blocked, on all angles. You have prayed about it, cried about it, and now you are dangling on the edge of frustration.
“All things work together for the good of them that love God and are called by his name.” Romans 8:28
“The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places”. Psalm 16:6
“All things are working for my good. It may not look like it, but things are working for me. The rejections are pointing me in the right direction. What’s leaving is so that what is for me may come in. I am blessed and highly favoured. Men will look upon me to do me good.”
Affirmations for when you do not feel loved
It is one thing to feel like people don’t care, and it’s another ball game when you feel like God doesn’t even care – how can he love me and watch me in this situation? Why is he not making a move that I can see? Why would he let me go through this?
You can say this east you go about your day
“I am the apple of God’s eyes. Whatever touches me touches him.
He will give up the heathens for my sake.
God loves me. I will be fine, I am loved, I radiate love, and I attract love.”
Positive Affirmations for when you lack self-confidence and feel like you are lagging behind
“I am enough. More than enough.
Before I was formed, he knew who I would be. He has me in mind.
God has a perfect plan for me. I am exactly where I am supposed to be, and I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. Will walk in my highest expression of self each day. I am amazing, and I am a blessing to my generation.”
Save these positive affirmations for when life’s worries seem like they are ready to drown you. You will be fine, babe.
