THANK YOU FATHER GOD
It is day 5 of my blog challenge to write a gratitude post for 21 consecutive days.
If you would like to join in, you can either share your own post and link back to mine, or leave your contribution in a comment box below. Hope to hear from you!
With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.
Good morning Father God.
Today, I want to thank you for another new day.
I want to thank you that this day finds me rested and refreshed and ready to meet its opportunities and challenges. I want to thank you because each new day offers me a chance to recognise and bask in the glory of your goodness.
Thank you Father God for my increasing awareness that whether I experience a good or a bad day is entirely up to me. It depends upon my choices. It depends upon my thoughts. And so I’m training myself to cast down every thought and imagination which exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ. I’m training myself to focus upon thoughts of peace and prosperity, thoughts which are praiseworthy and virtuous.
Of course, I have absolutely no control over others and how they may choose to (mis)treat me. But by your grace and by the help of your Holy Spirit, I do possess the power to rise above anything that is contrary to your promises, or your perfect will for my life. Whether I invoke that power is my choice!
And so dear Father God, I thank you again for this brand new day. It is your precious gift of life to me and how I choose to use it, is my gift to myself and to others around me. I therefore choose to colour my day beautiful.
