Dysbelief System

I've been thinking lately about the impact of having a belief about yourself that is not accurate (doesn't line up to what God says about you). I've learned about this before when I was taking some classes through Elijah house (if you want to know what this is, ask me in person, it requires a longer explanation) Any whoo...they call it unGodly beliefs but I like the word dysbelief system cause I'm using dys to mean impaired or bad, the dictionary confirms this...see below
  1. Abnormal: dysplasia.
  2. Impaired: dysesthesia.
  3. Difficult: dysphonia.
  4. Bad: dyspepsia.
I appreciate people who tell me that what I'm saying/thinking about myself isn't true and I have a dysbelief system. It seems that almost all of my negative thoughts can be traced back to this dysbelief. I give myself a headache though trying to reverse the thoughts. I know quoting Scripture and going back to the truth is the solution, it's just putting it into practice and in the middle of a crazy day where you are just keeping up, it seems overwhelming.

I know exactly what you mean about it being difficult to shed your dysbelief system. Particularly because the worse we feel, the less likely we are to think about how to get out of that.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this!

Jeni- yep and it seems like it is down the drain from there
