Practicing Healthy Self-Talk

Have you ever noticed how much you talk to yourself? Throughout the day, hundreds of internal impromptu monologues are performed on the stage of your mind. As you interpret the experiences of life, you do so largely with words. The content of this self-talk can be constructive and helpful, or very misleading and even destructive. Research shows that we can speak to ourselves at a rate of over 1,000 words per minute. At that rate, you can very quickly talk yourself into going in a positive or negative direction. In order to avoid out of control, confusing and possibly hurtful responses in life, and to live in a way that is pleasing to God, it is important to learn to think biblically and to talk to yourself rather than just listen to yourself.

The King James Version has become one of the most influential books of all time, containing the truth of the Scriptures, and also certain phrases which have become part of the common English language. This year, we celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the culmination of that 7-year process to translate the Scriptures, resulting in what we know as the King James Bible, in 1611.
