I have a challenge for you!
I sense that the climate of America is changing for the better. If you do not sense that, it’s ok, I have something for you to do to change that. If you do sense that positive change, good for you. I want YOU to be able to level up in your positivity. The truth is, joy, and positivity comes from within. Your truth, your perspective on life can be negative or positive, It’s all up to you. You can decide to focus on what ever you want to focus on.
Did you know that we become a slave to our thoughts, good, or bad.
I believe that is why the Lord said in Philippians 4:8
“Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.”
Understand my dear friends if you continue to fix your thoughts on CNN, MSNBC, etc, those are the facts that will consume your thoughts. There is nothing wrong with being aware of what’s going on in the world, but what does your awareness force you to focus on?
Personally, I leave all of the goings on’s in the world to God. Nothing takes Him by surprise! I choose to live my life listening to the voice of the Lord so that He can tell me how to pray for our country, and our world, instead of fixating on constant negativity.
- I believe that we as believers have a duty to show the world the joy of the Lord, which is what strengthens us.
- I believe that we as believers look and listen more to what’s going on around us than we do to God’s voice.
- I believe that purposefully focusing on what we are grateful for will help us have a paradigm shift in our thought life.
- I believe that changing our thought life will change our prayer life.
- Changing our prayer life is essential to helping God do what He wants to do in the earth through us, His body.
The truth is, we are His body, shouldn’t we do what He wants us to do?
I am saying all of this to PROPOSE A CHALLENGE FOR YOU ALL
For the next 21 days, I propose that we all:
Get up in the morning and listen to God for at least 5 minutes.
Write in your journal every morning after listening to the Lord what 5 things that you are grateful for.
Also, pay attention to your thoughts.
Every time you think something negative, say out loud something that you are grateful for.
Throughout this 21-day period, continuously tell everyone around you, what you are grateful for concerning them you.
As I am typing, I am thinking about the places that I need to improve on my gratitude and more ways to share my gratefulness.
I am so excited for this guys!!
We are going to change our thought life, what we focus on, and those around us, one grateful act at a time!
LET’S DO THIS!!!
I will be posting on Snapchat, IG, and FB every day to keep you reminded. Also for those who don’t have social media, I will send you an email via this blog with the same reminders.
Thanks for joining me.
