My Favorite Affirmations For Health

I strongly believe our thoughts influence our experiences.  And in fact, we all do this every day, just backwards.  We have negative self-talk going all the time.  And not only that, but it is common to give attention and energy to things going wrong in our lives, rather than believing those things/actions/occurrences can go back to the nothingness from which they came.  Learning to have positive self-talk, having what God calls us to do.

Here are my favorites this month:

I am nourished by the spirit within.

Every cell of my body is filled with light.

I give thanks for radiant health and endless happiness.


What God has done for others, He does for me and more.

I am claiming the first one over and over as I get ready to my final drop in medications in a few days...I am now down 90%....almost done!  How is it going?  Dropping in dose every 7 days gives me 3-4 great days......

Does stress in your life manifest physically?  Do you get headaches, pain, depression?   Or how about this - do you put that "Why, I'm FINE look on your face around everyone else and then fall apart in private? ...Hmmm.......Well, I DO!!  Is that a girl thing or just a Cheri thing?  :)

For 6 years, I thought of that saying that "God only gives you what you can handle" and I would scream, "I'm good....don't send anymore...thanks though!!" seemingly falling on deaf ears.

But guess what I realized?  I didn't BELIEVE it would resolve.  I didn't truly believe.  That was a tough chat with myself.  Some things just seem impossible, you know?  But truly is anything impossible with God?  NO!  So why don't we easily do what God calls us to do?  I love this verse:

"And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."  Matt 21:22
King James Bible
"If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."  Matt 21:22  New International Version 1984

But honestly,  if I believe even thinking about negative things gives them power, then what would writing them in a blog or forum do?  What would getting nearly 300 amazing blog friends in the world to THINK and GIVE ENERGY to the negative do to and for my family?   How can these things go back to the nothingness from which they came if I think about them all the time, talk about them all the time, and then write them down?  Writing them down becomes LAW!!  We MUST keep our minds focused positively.  This is something I work on every single day....just the other day, I wrote about a huge issue and now wish I had worded it differently.  One day at a time......


Let go and take your mental hands off.  Put it in God's hands and use this statement:  "I put this situation in the hands of Infinite Love and Wisdom."


How are you doing with positive self-talk?  What are YOUR favorite affirmations?

Would you be interested in an Affirmation and Praise Report blog hop, or do you already know of one?  Where we could all write a post on our blogs and share with the world?  How powerful would that be?    Let me know!

Have a blessed day!



  1. Oh Cheri, what a beautiful post! I have done a relatively good job of not listening to negative influences, though sometimes not so much. Stress is a huge trigger for my migraines; sometimes those life adventures are not so easy to "let go and let God" as I have been often told to do. I'm definitely battling with something like this right now, but can't write about it cause my blog apparently has watchful eyes. ={ I wish I could point you in the direction of an Affirmation and Praise report blog hop, but I don't know of one. Even my own blog has taken on a life of it's own lately. Not certain that's a good thing...Thanks for this post! ~Hugs, Mitzi

  2. Thanks so much for this Post. I really needed it today. Going to go find my smile now... 

  3. I really struggle with staying positive when there is a lot of negativity around me. I, too, try to concentrate on positive affirmations and esp. the Serenity Prayer but it remains hard for me to let it go and put it in the hands of God.

    Lovely post, Cheri. Sending you positive thoughts for your continued improvements health wise.

  4. Oh Cheri,
    That brought joy to my heart! I always talk to God and tell him what's going on with me. I know He knows, but I talk to Him just the same. And one thing I know for sure...He listens, and will always be there with me. Thank you for that lovely put a smile on my face.
