Life Matter: Your Self-Talk

"Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits" - Psalm 103:2.

David had a talk with his soul, directing it to praise and remember. Have you noticed that you are in a constant dialog with yourself? This is called self-talk. It is important that when you do something less than perfect, you don't say to yourself, "Boy, are you dumb" or "You never were any good at that." David suggests what at least some of your self-talk should be: focusing on God's goodness to you and praising His holy name. One way to guide your inner talk is to have a robust dialog with others according to Revelation 12:11: "They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony." Are you sharing with others how good God is to you? Are you rehearsing God's goodness in your mind according to what you have, or do your thoughts focus on what you don't have or how bad things are?
