Vol 2 #2 Affirmation…


Many of you have made “resolutions” in the past for the new year. “I resolve…” it’s an intention, a plan, a goal and I commend the effort. I have written countless resolutions over the years. So I resolve never to do that again! I am only going to write affirmations. In other words I plan to write statements that envision a completed vision. I plan to visualize the change that I wish to occur. This will mean taking some time daily to actually center on an image or a word or phrase that suggests the new state of being that I wish to experience. Muhammad Ali once said,“I figured that if I said it enough, I would convince the world that I really was the greatest.”

Affirmation visualizes what we expect. We expect to be physically healthier or we expect to have read a novel a month or we expect to be satisfied with the savings we have invested for the year.

I am in excellent physical shape and weigh 180 lbs.

I have invested regularly all year long and have saved $5,000.

I have daily set aside quiet time for scripture and personal meditation.

Visualizing the expectation assumes that we are capable of acheiving what we dreamed of in the first place. Psalm 8:5 says, You made (humans) a little lower than the angels; you have clothed (them) in honor and in glory. Scripture assumes we are capable of what heavenly beings are able to achieve – other worldly results. Why do we always sell ourselves short with negative goals?


Even Jesus assumes we are capable of greatness when he said, I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. They will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father. Jesus wanted to unleash the capabilities of humans to achieve much more; not for personal selfish reasons but for the good of others and the world. Makes some new year affirmations for yourself and share with me what you’ve decide to visualize.
