How do you start your day each morning? What are your first thoughts? Are they positive and up beat or are your thoughts full of regret and dread of the things you face today?
We have to remember that each day is a gift from God! If I let myself fall into that dread that some of us fall into in the morning than I will live in that most of my day but if I start with a positive attitude, an attitude that reflects my belief that my whole day belongs to God (because of course HE gave it to us) than I can look toward my day with hope! As I tell my family, if you think positively than positive things will happen, it is all in how we approach it!
God wants us to be happy and to enjoy our lives. He longs for us to lean on him and his word to get through each day. If we start our day in conversation with him and looking toward a day full of his blessings than we begin that day with smiles and happiness that will hang with us all day long.
Of course, things happen and some days are not always easy but we have a hope in God that we can always call on him in the good and the bad.
How will you start your day tomorrow? Looking for the negative or looking toward the one whose love is never ending and who gave us this day, let's rejoice in it!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
