Perception-Who do you think you are?


How do you perceive yourself? Do you think the best of yourself? Or less of yourself? Do you talk yourself down or talk yourself up? Perception is our way of looking ourselves and at others. It is our way of understanding who we are and what we believe others to be. Based on our perception of ourselves and others, we make assumptions.  And those assumptions cause us to create a belief system about ourselves and others. This thought of perception leads us into a permanent way of believing. This belief system can make or break you. Why? The more you think yourself into how you perceive yourself, you become what you believe.

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he Proverbs 23:7

It’s like the old saying “you are what you eat”. This is true because what you eat shows in your physical being.  Your perception is the same way. You are what you believe you are.

Maybe you have thought less of yourself? Maybe you have even compared yourself to others. Whatever the case may be, you have a choice to change your belief system.  Start today. Every day is a new day to begin again. Your life begins today…………………..


The person you want to be and start thinking that way


The misconceptions you may have about yourself.

The misconceptions you may have about others.


In your journal time this week, write down your perceptions and misconceptions.

What can you do to change your thought?

What steps will you take to make these changes?

How will you know your perception has changed?

    I liked the connection you made between perception and assumption. I tend to approach things from a positive viewpoint but henceforth, I will check my perception when my assumptions lean towards the negative.

    What a life changing truth. We don’t have to wait for our situation to change to be that person that we desire to be in Christ. It starts with a change of mind and heart. Good word!
