Write From the Abundance of Your Own Soul
My cup overflows…
Psalm 23:5c -
It is a good thing to write and receive from your own pains, sorrows, and woundings, but it is just as good and helpful to others to write and receive from the abundance of your own soul. Even when going through hard times, it is the right thing to focus on what is good rather than the darkness. It is of vital importance that we learn to see and live our lives from the King’s perspective. When I am down, I focus on the fact that God will deliver me from the shadows of the lies of the enemy. When I feel betrayed, I focus on the One Who has my back even when others let me down. When I sorrow, I focus on what I have rather than on what I have lost. When we receive creatively we must remember to not always wallow in our sorrows but to also rejoice in all we have been given. Even if you lost everything but still had breath, you would have something to be thankful for. Even if faced with death, we have the reality of eternal life to give thanks for. Write and receive today from the abundance of your soul. -
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Question, have you ever heard a song in your Spirit that sounded like you but you knew it was being sung over you and you know it's the song of the Lord but you go to write it down and the song stops, or at least you don't hear it anymore? I've had that happen a couple times. Any suggestions?
