Thoughts --------> Feelings --------> Actions = Results
Here’s a simple scenario for you ladies:
Thought: Hmmm he’s late from work, again. It’s the fourth time this month. He’s probably cheating that no good, lying ...
Feeling: Anger, depression, low self-esteem, restlessness, fear, suspicion/distrust
Action: Yelling, screaming, checking mates pockets or cell phone, lack of communication; fear-based decisions,
Result: Destroyed relationship, possible divorce, hurt children if any, broken hearts/family.
Do you know anyone who always seems to have drama, always in some type of battle? They might be battling with a spouse, child or employer. They sometimes contrive these battles of the mind where they’re fighting some invisible force or entity. Why is it that bad things seem to happen to some good people all the time? If God is good, and I believe He is, where is the manifestation of goodness?
I believe in and practice the, “I AM” theory. Here’s how it works. When Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?” And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of
Let me take this one step further. God said, I am who I am. Now, this next statement will make some of you angry. But, at this point in the game of life for me, I really don’t give a rip. I hope making you angry will shed some light on your pitiful victimization. So, stating this simply, If God is in me, and I believe he’s in each and every one of us since everything is God; and, I am in Him—I cannot be separated from my source, than the “I AM WHO I AM” applies to me also.
When I say, I AM broke-voila', I become unable to create or find money.
When I say, I AM powerless-amazingly, I become weak and victimized.
When I say, I AM sick and tired, magically, I become ill and fatigued.
What if I began to believe, I AM Good? If God is good and all that is in Him and through Him is good, then am I not good? Is all that surrounds me through Him, by Him not good?
Let’s use our Thoughts --------> Feelings --------> Actions = Results model. Here we go:
Thought: God is good; thereby, I AM Good!
Feeling: Increased esteem, confident, peaceful, motivated, blessed, resilient, filled with faith
Action: Move forward with confidence: write a vision plan or business plan, change careers, exit toxic relationships
Result: A purpose-filled abundant life
