Six Powerful Affirmations to Keep Your Life on Track

What you say is what you get. ~ Author Unknown

In the last post, I shared how the power of Affirmations helps you overcomes life’s stress and challenges. Over the years, I have learned to say certain things – affirmations – to cancel negative emotions and attract positive results. Here are six affirmations that changed my life.

  1. “I will not be defeated and I will not quit.” It is so easy to throw up your hands and say, “I tried.” But ‘try’ is never enough. To win in any situation, you have to be prepared to stay with it until you do win! It’s a philosophy that applies to everything. Michael Jordan is perhaps the greatest basketball player ever. But he freely admits that he has lost more than 300 games, missed over 9,000 shots. But he never quit. Whatever you want, whatever you need to accomplish – don’t let your circumstances win. Don’t quit.
  2. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Yes, it’s a Bible verse. But I use it all the time – when I’m tired and just want to give up (see #1!), when I’m faced with a problem that I don’t know how to solve, when I need physical strength to just get through the day. Sometimes I partner it with “I rest in God’s energy,” drawing strength and resolve from the Eternal source of all energy and ability.  
  3. “I have the mind of Christ.” The power here taps into Divine wisdom to solve seemingly unsolvable problems. God has answers to every situation. Affirming that connects your spirit with His wisdom. Patience allows Spirit to work on your behalf to bring the answers or change the circumstances to bring the solution you seek.
  4. “I am rooted and grounded in Love.” This one is particularly effective when I’m NOT feeling very loving. When someone interrupts ‘my’ routine, wants something from me that I don’t really want to do, or when I’m feeling selfish, I remind myself of my higher calling. I am rooted and grounded in love. I can set aside my wants and focus on the other person. God will take care of me. Use that as an affirmation, coupled with appropriate action to line yourself up for greater blessing.
  5. “There is nothing lost in God’s world.” Use this one where you are looking for lost keys, glasses or any misplaced item. It may take some time, but if you will let this work, a thought will pop into your mind to look … somewhere. And you will usually find exactly what you are looking for.
  6. “God loves me and has a good plan for my life.” Use this all the time, but especially when circumstances seem aligned against you. This affirmation helps to line up your thinking with the divine plan of blessing and abundance. It helps defeat stress by acknowledging the power of Divine assistance and direction.

Use this … and add your own to change your focus. When your thoughts and words are negative, filled with worry, stress and unbelief, it’s almost impossible to overcome your circumstances. Changing what you say will help you change your attitude and focus. You CAN change your life … just by changing your words.
