Life: it can go in two directions; for better or for worse. Many believe that their life is always going in the opposite direction, for the worse. I see and hear people say “FML” (sorry) or “I hate my life” for the stupidest things yet you only have one.
Yes, we all have bad days but most importantly it’s up to you to allow that bad situation to ruin your entire day.
Nowadays, I tell people make it a great day, make it an amazing day, or be blessed on this amazing day. You are in charge of the outcome of your day.
Yesterday, many employees cried to me in confidence, yesterday my teacher forgot to tell me I needed an appointment to take a midterm therefore I couldn’t take it, yesterday I needed to be in the Lords house but I decided to assist family instead, yesterday it was 65 degrees and I was at work all day and couldn’t enjoy it, yesterday all of these unexpected occurrences gave me a pounding headache along with a few other things. I was upset for ten minutes I won’t lie but I didn’t let it steal my joy!
Thank God today for opening your eyes and declare that today will be a good day. You control the outcome and stop saying your life sucks because when you look at the small positives they make this life worth it.
Many blessings to you and go out and make today great!!
Today was a good day! I meditated a lot of Psalms 138:8 “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me”. I know in my heart I do not like soda yet I wanted Barq’s rootbeer today, I wanted to eat another meal besides my normal routine.
I was driving in the car and my stomach started talking to me. I decided to say a silent prayer to myself since there was another passenger in the car. I asked God to fill me up with His word since my mind is playing tricks on me. The devil is playing tricks on me. He is telling me to eat whatever I want and that I will not make it through this fast. As soon as I reached my destination I started reading the Word. I had to. I went to sleep after no longer having hunger pangs just filled up with the Word. Sometimes God doesn’t answer ours prayers immediately but He does answer them. We have to just listen for His voice and be patient. He answered my prayer today and I am grateful for a faithful God.
Today I ate a little different. My body wasn’t agreeing with me today everything I ate gave me an upset stomach.
Breakfast: Hummus with flat bread
Lunch: salad with broccoli, raw sunflower seeds, cucumbers, carrots, and avocado with an olive oil and red pepper dressing that I made.
Dinner: stir-fry vegetables with no rice
Snacks: popcorn, raw mixed nuts with organic dried apples, and more hummus.
This afternoon I read Revelation 7-9 for bible study this evening and Luke 3 for the fast.
It’s so important to drink lots of water during this process it helps a lot with hunger. I miss chewing gum.
