Every morning I wake up and make a decision. Do I want to have a good day or a bad day.? Its amazing that we actually have the opportunity to choose that for ourselves.
For some odd reason I wake up every day with a list of things of things to do, concerns, insecurities, fears and sometimes dread. I hate to admit that but it’s true. I think the enemy of my soul goes to work on me during the night when my “gatekeeper” is asleep and fills my mind with fearful thoughts and before my feet hit the floor I am overwhelmed.
Over the years, I have learned the art of speaking truth to my soul. Taking every thought captive in obedience to Christ. I recall scripture, the promises of God,speak truth to myself intentionally make a decision about where I allow my mind to dwell.
I believe that God has a purpose for every living being He created. In order to find that purpose and pursue a life of meaning we must be cleared from faulty thinking that can derail us. If we are insecure, tired, beaten down and negative we won’t accomplish anything. Worse, we are not recognizing our own value as a child of God.
So make a decision today to have a good day. Believe God when He tells you He loves you. Believe Him when He says “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Then go into the day with confidence in who you are and pursue your purpose. You are the only one who can! Go for it!
