Wonderful news! Whether I believe I am breaking through or breaking down, I am right. I am always right. For what a man thinketh, he is. May my yesterday be gone forever. May my trials of yesterday provide the motivation for today. May my past turn to knowledge and wisdom. If yesterday’s door did not open, it just means it was not my door.
Today is the day. God gave me this day to do good things. I will not waste it. Everyday has choices, the exercise of freewill. Today I choose to seize the day. Today i must let my light shine bright, for the whole world to see. If the world does not know one is in darkness, how can they see the light that I carry with me?
Life is never 180 degrees out of phase. It only takes one small step to change my course, my destiny. I must start filling in the pages of my book with intentional living and intentional thoughts, not a prisoner of yesterday. The key to success and life are the same. Think greater than my current reality. Be one degree greater today than yesterday and greatness will find me and make me a friend. I must be 100% present today. Thoughts are in my control, despotism or greatness, the choice is mine. Whether I believe I am at the end of my book or just a chapter, I am right. I chose to turn the page on yesterday. Today’s page is blank, what should I write? If the words are to be read at my life’s end, what would I want it to say about today? “He persisted without exception to first know himself and then to lift all those he could. He knew that wisdom is experience and knowledge, that if you are to guide others through the dark times, you must travel through a few dark days.”
How can one draw a map of a road he has not traveled? How can one tell of the exit to success if one has not taken it? How can one teach strength if one has not had to demonstrate any? How can one demonstrate character without testing it? How can one tell of the greatness of the Lord Jesus Christ if one let’s go of his hand in the hardness of times? The hardest steel is forged in the hottest fire. This is my opportunity to prove my worth. The most beautiful part is knowing the fight has been won, and I will live today demonstrating this truth.
Joy cannot be taken; it must be given. Happiness is not a place or thing, it is an emotion, you must feel emotions, and know that you have the choice of what you feel. Feeling joyous in the toughest of times is your way of demonstrating power over the external world. This is your power, do not give it away. Being a victim or person of great emotional and physical strength in life is a choice. Choose strength, if only for today.
