 As we continue on with our study of the book by Lysa Terkeurst’s Unglued, (if you’d like to join us, it’s really really good stuff! – go to: Melissa Taylor’s Online Bible Studies for this six week study that teaches how to process our emotions and resolve conflicts that lead to a much more peaceful life). 
                                    



  These are just a few examples. What  labels are on your  life?  Have you been placed as a prisoner of these labels forever? I don’t know about you, but I want to be free from labels, especially if they are negative.

 
 Let’s find freedom from the bondages from what has held us captive for so long.
We are created in God’s image – we are HOLY- and RIGHTEOUS – FORGIVEN – CLEANSED and RENEWED!!!  Even if you don’t FEEL “positive” words in your life,  speak them ANYWAY until you accept the fact that you ARE beautiful, strong, smart, (or whatever you need reinforcement into believing for yourself!).
Imagine, like an artist (Lysa gave a fantastic analogy of Michael Angelo’s David sculpture, (you’ve GOT to get this book!), he chisels  – and chops away at the parts not needed. Getting rid of the unnecessary parts – to make a new creation. The end result is a   MASTERPIECE , a beautiful creation.
YOU are that masterpiece! You have greatness in you and God thinks SO much of you – you ARE so very important to Him , and to others! Never sell yourself short by using those negative labels. Cast them OFF and OUT of your mind! Dump those ugly words from your vocabulary!  Let loose so you can live in the freedom that He has for you  – free to live an abundant life, you will see that when you speak LIFE into yourself, it comes back to you like a boomerang!
Let the Master  create a new and fresh attitude in you, full of grace and strength. As you are renewed, you are able to pass these benefits onto your daughters, granddaughters, nieces and others around you.
 Let’s pray:
Abba, Daddy, we come to you, with free will today, as we want to lift up your Holy Name, and praise YOU for making each morning new and afresh to us. We love you and thank you for guiding us along life’s path.
We come before you and ask for help. Help to chisel off and get rid of loosen the chains  that have bound us by the many labels we, or others have put upon us. We have carried those terms and words much to long. We release them, help us to let go, to bring awareness of anything we are still carrying that holds us back from the true freedom that you give.  Thank you for new life – and for learning each day, how to speak LIFE into our own life as well as to others. Let our lives be a living testimony to the work YOU do in us every day, we are the beacon of light on a hill – wanting to share the wonderful life of Jesus and salavation. Let us stay joyful – even in the midst of any mindsets we may have, and that you will change those mindsets into freedom! Love you JESUS!  Thank you for newness in life! AMEN!
Girls, YOU ARE    BEE-U-TEA-FUL!!!!!!!!!

1 Peter 1:3 NLVLet us thank the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It was through His loving-kindness that we were born again to a new life and have a hope that never dies. This hope is ours because Jesus was raised from the dead.”

Proverbs 11:30
What good people produce is like a life-giving tree. Those who are wise give new life to others.
Romans 12:2
Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s will is—what is good and pleasing and mature.
Colossians 3:10
and put on the new nature, which is renewed in knowledge by conforming to the image of the one who created it.
