A good friend recently introduced me to the 5 statements of faith. I have found them to be so powerful in the hardest of struggles that I just couldn’t wait to share them with you. Are you in a tough season? Is there an obstacle you just can’t seem to get around? A decision you can’t seem to make? A relationship you can’t fix? An addiction you can’t break? Whatever you hang up may be (we all have them) try starting each day with a bold declaration of what you believe. Starting your day with this frame of mine has the power to change every aspect of your day. Every exchange, every decision, every struggle, every thought.
Read through these statements. Do it slowly and carefully.
Do you believe each one?
If you don’t, will you join me on the journey to dig in and ask God to help you believe each of these life-changing truths?
