CONFESSIONS .....

My alarm goes off, it’s 5am again! Time to get up, time to get the day started, I’ve got a lot on my to-do list and the earlier I get started, the better for me.

But first, there is a crucial need to acknowledge the one who made it possible for me to wake up in the morning, the one who kept me through the night and for whom I live. I also need to do my morning ritual, CONFESS. In the cause of my walk with God, however, I've come to recognize and realize the power of Confessions.

Listen, there is a power like no other on our tongues. The greatest power that we have as humans, lie within us. The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. – Pro. 18:21; so you see why what we say about ourselves go on to shape who and what we become. I know it sounds cliché but it’s just the basic truth.

Here is how it works, the more you say negative things about a particular situation, the more negative results you will see. Now, positive things might be happening concerning that situation but because of what you believe and because of what you have been prophesying, you will not see the positive things and all that you will see will be negative.



This is where the power of confessions comes in. Every morning after my prayers, I recite some promises of God and declare great things upon myself. I have those things written down on paper and so everyday, for the past year (save some days that I missed but who’s counting?) I’ve been reciting those promises, so much that I even know them by heart now.

My confessions are based on two things: my present and my future. I declare what I want from my future, who I want to become, the kind of mother/woman I want to be and the kind of husband and family that I desire. And in regards to my present state, I make declarations concerning the impact I want to have on people and the kind of words that I want to proceed out of my mouth and I can bet you that it works!! 100%. In every aspect of my life, I see those words come to life.

I charge you to do the same. If not for anything, just to prove me wrong, try it for a month. Every morning, stand in front of the mirror and declare great things on yourself. Draft the confessions concerning things that you are waiting on God for and things that your faith is weak on. And recite it over and over again, every morning for the next 31 days.

Here’s the catch though, it’s not just about reciting it, and you have to BELIEVE every word that you say. I promise you, you’ll never remain the same. If you need help drafting your own confessions, leave a comment below and I'll reach out to you.

Here are the first few lines of my own daily confessions:

"I am a God fearing woman, I worship God with the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, I submit to God and I am careful to do his will at all times ……"

  1. lovely..very inspiring...you know pple don't realise just how powerful the words of your tongue are..but it's so obvious ...even people who don't worship God, how do they perform their rituals? by incantations..words!

    Words are sp powerful because we wrestle not against flesh and blood...

  7. Thanks! What's your e-mail? I'll send you my own copy and if after that you still need help, then let me know. But pretty much, it's all about tailoring the words towards your strength and weakness; past, present and future. Thanks again.
