“You are today where your thoughts have brought you. You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” —James Allen
Try this: On a small piece of paper, write down whatever cares you might have and then wad them up and throw them in the trash can. Put your faith and trust in God to provide every physical, material, and spiritual blessing He has already prepared for you. All you have to do is release the blessing, and then think positive thoughts and speak positive words that build us up rather than tearing others or ourselves down.
Use positive affirmations, such as: “Today I will have a blessed and prosperous day.” “Worry is worthless and profits me nothing.” “Today I will walk in integrity and do what’s right before God.” “I am a child of God, and I will never sell myself short again.” Any positive affirmation will prime the mind and get it going in the right direction.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Dear Lord, today I am putting up a Choose to Be List, in a visible place that I go to every morning (bathroom sink, kitchen sink, dining table, and refrigerator door), somewhere I can’t miss it. Each morning I will write down what I choose to think about and concentrate on today.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Every thought produces a result! “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Prov. 23:7).
