life: year 38


 I’m still in awe at how quickly this year is going by. Seems like yesterday I was celebrating my 37th birthday and here I am ringing in year 38.

Last year, I penned a post about lessons I learned within that year. I had plans to write a post similar to that one, but decided to go a different route.


Over the weekend, I had a conversation with my wonderful mother and as we chatted, she reminded me that our words carry power, and that whatever we speak through The Authority instilled in us shall come to pass, whether good or bad.


As I celebrate my new personal year, I wanted to share 5 biblical promises that I plan on speaking over myself in hopes that it encourages you to do the same.

Let’s go!

  1. I am at the top as long as God is with me– The LORD will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the LORD your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. – Deut. 28:13

2. I shine bright  – “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. – Matt. 5:14

3.  I am bold – ” For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

4. Great things are coming my way – ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”- Jeremiah 29:11

5. I can do all things, because his favor surrounds me – “ His favor will surround you like a shield” – Psalm 5:12


There are so many more promises/affirmations, but I felt that these 5 were good to start with. If you have any you’d like to share drop them below!

Until next time.

“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways”

-Job 22:28
