It's Monday! Instead of getting sucked in to the negativity of "Monday" let's challenge each other to be positive today...and everyday. Let's speak life and scripture over ourselves, husbands, children, marriages, family, friends, ministry etc. Instead of letting our thoughts run away with us let's choose to focus and control them by not letting destructive thoughts in and only allowing positive thoughts to fill our minds.
I believe the spoken word is important. Speaking blessings and scripture over ourselves is wonderful. The bible says Jesus is the Word. John 1:1 & 14. There is power in our words!
The challenge is to count your blessings today! Can you speak out and remind yourself of 1000 blessings today?
