I woke up Tuesday morning around 6am, and no sooner had a opened my eyes the words “The Joy of the Lord is my strength” rolled off my tongue. It was as if my spirit had to release the power of the words into the air and declare it into the atmosphere. I looked into the mirror and repeated it again “The joy of the Lord is my strength”. As the day progressed and events began to unfold, i needed to draw on the strength of God. My day was not rough or filled with chaotic mayhem, it was a day filled with unusual events, situations, people and oddest remarks. I had to pull on Gods strength and continually ask God to renew my mind and help me to see things in a different light. As I was praying, I began to realize that in many areas of our life we have choices and options. In addition, I realized that I could accept the situations presented to me that day or I could take a different approach. I could choose to look at the day as bad or change my attitude about it. I chose to take a different approach and perceive things a little differently and I decided that instead of reacting to situations, I must be proactive.
It is Thursday and so far every day after Tuesday has gotten better and better. I saw the biggest, brightest rainbow in the sky this evening and it reminded me of the convenant God made with Noah and the covenant and promise God has made me and each and every one of his children. Be Blessed.
