Cafe Chat

Hello All!!! I will be using the MckLinky feature today, but I wanted to give a quick recap first of how to use the MckLinky if you are not familiar with this feature.
There are two ways to participate in the Cafe Chat weekly. The first way is to leave a comment and/or your answer to the Cafe Chat question directly on the Cafe Chat post. The second way you can participate is to actually answer the Cafe Chat question on your blog or website, and then leave a link back to your blog/website letting us know that you answered the question at your own site. This is where the MckLinky is going to become an awesome tool to help us connect with each other.
If you answer the question to the Cafe Chat at your blog/website, just make sure to leave your site address on the MckLinky feature. It is very easy, I promise :). If you have problems, just leave me a comment at my personal blog or directly on this Cafe Chat post.
OK, thanks for bearing with me while I explained a little about the McLinky. So let's get to today's question.
During the past decade I have heard it said many times that our mind is like a tape recorder. Our mind continually plays messages over and over again. Some of those messages are good, and some are bad. Some messages are truth, and then others are lies. If you are like me I don't think my tape recorder has a stop button, as my mind is continually playing some kind of message.
So today, I ask you what is one message that your "tape recorder" (mind) is playing over and over in your head that is a lie?
God's Word is the only thing that has the power to change our minds. His truth is the only way to erase a lie.
So for the second part of the question I am asking that you find a scripture from the Bible that gives you truth over your lie. List the scripture for us.
Then I want to challenge you to keep telling yourself God's truth about the lie you are believing. Let God erase that lie from your mind once and for all.

Blessings to all!!!

Kim, this is a great question!! I am doing a series on my blog right now about the reasons we pull back instead of giving our love - the reasons we don't accept the love that is offered us...rejection, fear, anger. We're going to look at love and forgiveness. This is one area that I listen to lies - that my passion and emotion are a weakness, and ugliness. That I can't take my thoughts and feelings captive! I know that God has created me with this passion for a purpose! I'll try to get back here to post a scripture.

This IS a great question, and I've been reviewing lies in general in a Women's Bible Study at church. We're reading "Lies Women Believe" and a lot of truth has been discovered. Yesterday, I began to see clearly a deeply painful lie that I have held onto for 20 years. It has to do with my ability and "qualification" to be a good mother. Having experienced an abortion at age 17, and then giving up a child for adoption at 18 - I had many years to berate and beat myself up for my choices. The easiest thing to believe is that I was "unfit" to be a mother and that's why God "allowed" me to make those choices - he was sparing those children... It was a rationalization that I clung to despite the deep wounds it caused.
20+ years later, I am a mother of 2 young girls who are so incredibly precious, and yet I have continued to feel a sense of disconnect with them (Postpartum depression, etc.) Yesterday, after several particularly trying moments with them, I was washing dishes and actually began reviewing this lie and God gave me Psalm 127:3 - Don't you see that children are God's best gift? the fruit of the womb his generous legacy? (The Message) Children are a precious gift, and while I made some wrong and difficult choices earlier in my life, God has given me a LEGACY and the BEST GIFT in allowing these 2 little girls to come into our home and family. That's a truth that I will cling to and rehearse until the lie I believed is no more!

I have a praise party going at my blog today, so don't have a post to link but love, love, love the topic! Colossians 1:16 says "....all things were created by Him and for Him."

This we the key verse for our VBS this past summer and I got to spend a week with 6th graders discussing how this verse tells us that God does not create trash. When we create things (crafts, food, etc..)we don't do it with the intention of making something that has no value, only to throw it away when we are done. So much more with God, as this verse tells us. God created us FOR HIM. For His glory, for fellowship with Him, to be used in His plans...

So when the enemy wants to whisper into my ear "you can't do this, you're not good enough, you should just give up"...I reply with I was created BY GOD AND FOR GOD... and God does not create things of no value!

Great chat! Now I am pumped about expanding this to work into my blogging schedule!!
