"You are faking it..."

I was accused the other day of faking it. The accusation was..."Every time we ask how you are you say, I'm doing well." Then they went on to inform me I had to be fibbing.
This made me think back to when I was a kid and my Grandma would call me into the house from playing. Grandma would say..."Now get on in there boy and wash everything that shows." hahha I can hear her now. Anyway this statement made me think of faking a bath or anything we do in life and putting on a show for all to see. BUT, let's examine this for a minute.
We all have our beliefs we live with and die with and some may not understand mine or yours. You all know that I am a christian and in the book of James it states, "A double minded person is unstable in all his ways". So instead of just washing what shows, or faking it by telling people I am doing well and lying to them.....I really confess and believe in my mind I am doing well. My body just hasn't caught up with my beliefs/mind.
Everyone knows that the body is led by the mind/head. If I were to say I am well one time and then change 5 minutes later I would appear unstable or double-minded as in the book of James. This does not mean I am in denial of pain etc. BUT I speak more of what's well with me than what isn't. The more my mind hears my positive speech/belief the more it will inform my body of how it should be. A type of reprogramming.
Now I know some of you are going WOW, he is out there today. Trust me when I say that I have practiced this for decades and know for a fact that this works in my behalf more than the alternative of wishy washy language. Wanting to be well but moaning and restating to everyone all your aches and pains does nothing but produces more aches and pains. You talk yourself into miserableness...the mind is leading the body in how it should be. This takes some learning and time to practice and become who you are. So washing what only shows is ok some of the times but we really need that 100% bath, all over, to be totally clean and feeling good. This bath is the quality of thoughts and the renewing of how you think. Call it self talk or selling yourself on how you want to be.
Take your thoughts and drive a standard in the ground and don't waver for nothing. In 2 Corinthians 5:7, it tells the christian to walk by faith and not by sight. My faith is in God and what HE has done and is doing for me. This is by belief and I get my thoughts renewed to this along with my speech. Mys speech is such as, how well I look and getting stronger day by day etc.. If others are going to talk about you let them repeat the positive things that you locked and loaded their lips with. I don't see myself sick even though I have pain etc.. I have a healthy of picture of myself in my head and the thinking/thoughts that go with it. Dwell on these things and not the negative. YOU are making a choice. THINK ABOUT IT! God bless..LOL


  1. Believe and recieve... your attitude can effect your altitude... WORRY is NEGATIVE believeing... Faith is POSITIVE believeing... You aren't lying to anyone... you are what you eat... feed you body and your mind with positive thoughts... wallowing in self pity is NOT helpful....
    Ok that's my 2 cents... Some days it is hard to be positive... but every day that my eyes open in the morning is a GOOD DAY! and I thank God every morning for allowing me one more day.

  2. All I can say to that Elaine is a big..AMEN!

  3. Wise, wise words. I have a close friend who was told to get his things in order and that he had a short time to live. He 'faked it' and believed. He also did constant visualisations of each cancer cell in his body being shrunk until they disappeared. In his mind he created an 'army' (his words) whose sole purpose was to eradicate the bad cells. That was 15 years ago and he continues to live a happy, healthy life.

    When one 'feeds' the body that includes the mind, the spirit and the soul.

  4. Wonderful story, Zappha. Ricky has the same attitude and will certainly have the same outcome as your friend. Right, Ricky???

  5. Right Mollie, as I follow the WORD.
