Above Rubies

I've been reading Nancy Campbell's '100 Days of Blessing' (you can find it here).  Today she spoke about being positive and speaking positive things into our lives.  Positivity is SO important!  Here's a snippet of my morning devotion:

One of the greatest secrets to live above your daily problems is your confession.  What you speak has power to affect your life, your circumstances and the lives of your children in your home.  Make sure your confession is positive.  Here are some affirmations for you to speak OUT LOUD today...and every day!

~I am ABOVE grumbling, complaining and self-pity!
~I am ABOVE listening to negative thoughts about my husband and my marriage.  I am bound by covenant.
~I am ABOVE the lure of being squeezed into the mold of this world's system.
~I am ABOVE being intimidated by the antagonists of God's truth.  I am on a narrow road that leads to life.
~I am ABOVE the fallacy that I am 'just a housewife.'  I am in the perfect will of God as I train my children to affect the course of this nation.
~I am ABOVE the deceiving humanistic philosophies that infiltrate the media and society around me.
~I am ABOVE the trials and frustrations that encompass me about.
~I am ABOVE the tales and petty talk of gossipers.
~I am ABOVE self-preoccupation.  I give room in my heart and mind for the needs of others.
~I am ABOVE the pressure to 'keep up with the Joneses.'  I don't have to have everything everyone else has.

"Who can find a virtuous woman, for her price is far above rubies."  Proverbs 31:10

Lord, help me today to speak positive words.  Help me to speak only words of victory.  Amen
