Dramatically Improve Your Chances to Have a Great Day
you can just about guarantee yourself
a great day every day.
Well, it’s not.
The way in which we begin a day largely determines how the day is going to go.
5 Techniques to Inspire You and Dramatically Improve Your Chances for a Great Day:
1. Remind Yourself You Are NOT Alone
Discover for yourself, what a wonderful way it is to wake up each morning with the reminder you are not alone. When you return to a semi-conscious state after a night of sleep, and while still in bed, repeat Psalm 139:18.
“When I awake, I am still with you.”
— Psalm 139:18
What does it mean? All night long while sleeping, we have been under the watchful care of our Heavenly Father. But now the day has come with all its potential problems, responsibilities, disappointments, and struggles. So it helps to be reminded that when we are awake God remains with us.
The eight comforting words in the above verse emphasize one of the greatest truths known to man – that we are not alone. Take time to memorize this verse. Then jumpstart your day and fill your waking moments with this reminder.
2. Pray for Others and Yourself
Next, pray for your loved ones, friends, and other people you have promised to pray for. Also pray for God’s guidance, wisdom, and protection over yourself as you go about your day.
3. Acknowledge Today as a Gift
Then, before leaving your bedside, repeat this inspiring Bible passage.
“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
— Psalm 118:24
God made this precious, opportunity-filled day; He gives it to you as a gift. And, as time passes, each day becomes more precious (or at least it should).
Keep in mind: You and I are very responsive to the moods of nature. Consider how you feel if you open your eyes and it is raining, or snowing, or the sky is overcast and the wind is blowing? This can be enough to start our day off on the wrong foot.
However, we can overcome any mood of nature, or any negative mood of human nature, by filling our minds with the realization that there is this precious thing called a day.
4. Visualize and Anticipate a Great Day
As you arise, mentally picture the good day you want and expect, visualize it clearly, and strongly affirm that mental picture. Practicing such awakening techniques can change your whole approach to life and help you see the good in every day.
For many, the moment their eyes open on a new day their thoughts begin to focus on all the awful things that might happen; and that is usually what they get. Why? Because what we project in our mind as a probability, is likely to result in fact.
To change apprehension, gloomy thoughts, and depressive attitudes to anticipation, repeat Genesis 1:1 and Psalm 118:24 three times in the morning, and then say them to yourself during the day.
Let your confession and affirmation be something such as: ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and earth and today is the day that the Lord has made. No other day just like it was ever made. This is it! I will rejoice and be glad in it. Thank you, Lord, for being with me this day. It’s going to be a great day!’
5. Let Go of the Past
Did it ever occur to you that yesterday ended last night? Every morning, you face a new beginning, so put the past behind you. Take the good memories you want to remember from the past along with you; as well as the lessons you’ve learned from your mistakes. But all the other things – leave them at the door of the new day.
One reason people have nervous breakdowns and are mentally sick is because they don’t shake themselves free of the past. Let it go!
Did you make mistakes last week? I did. What are we going to do about those mistakes? Start each day adventuring with God, and let the past be past. Do the best we can today with God’s help. Anticipate a great day, and it will be.
Do yourself a favor: Start putting these five techniques into practice. Habits and negative attitudes don’t change overnight. But if you can shift from apprehension to letting the thought of anticipation surge through your mind, your life will change and you’ll almost guarantee yourself a great day every day!
May your days be great and your life full of growing prosperity!

Christian Meditation – Meditate to Release Bad Habits and Face a Bright Hopeful Future Fully Alive!
Discover Christian Meditation to Help You…
Put Your Dependency on God and Live Fully Alive
negative memories and heavy weights of our past by
turning our faces toward a bright and hopeful future.
No matter how our wrong choices, bad habits,
or the storms of life blowing through have negatively
affected our health, employment, relationships, finances, etc.,
we can face a hopeful future and begin to build up what has been torn down.
Replace a Negative Dependence with a Higher Power
Negative, unhealthy thinking leads to a dependency on negative habits. Soon the bad effects of those negative habits weigh a person down more and more. Whether the dependency is on overeating, smoking, drinking, gambling, lying, gossiping, stealing, hating, or any other unhealthy addiction, it is time to find a new outlook on life.
Do not allow yourself to harbor disturbing thoughts that cause you to depend on bad habits. It is time to learn how to change from a low level of negative thinking to a higher level of positive thinking. It is time to break the dependency on bad habits that tear down.
Now is the time to depend on GOD instead!
Get Honest, Release the Weights, and Live Fully Alive
What an awful load people carry around with them when they live dependant on negative habits. It causes them to live only half alive due to the constant negative effects and fear of being found out.
Get honest with yourself and with other people. Release those heavy weights you have been carrying around on your shoulders and leave them in the past. Allow yourself the right to break the dependency on any bad habits.
Commit to Depend on the Almighty Power of GOD and Live Fully Alive!
“They should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us: For in Him we live, and move, and have our being.”
— Acts 17:28
A Daily Christian Meditation to be a Channel for God’s Spirit:
I keep my life calm and composed. My task today is to find peace and acquire serenity. I think of constructive things until calmness comes. I seek the Lord and in Him I live, and move, and have my being. When I am calm I act as a channel for God’s Spirit. The things of the Spirit come in to take their place. God’s love and peace and calm come in and fill me up and I live fully alive.
Closing thoughts: In the spiritual world, just as in the material world, there is no empty space. No matter what fears, worries, and resentments you may have, replace them with thoughts of constructive things. Sweep your life clean, allow good to come in, build yourself up, and be constructive by practicing Christian Meditation daily.
May God’s love and peace make you fully alive and fill your life with growing prosperity!
God bless you always,
Inspirational Living: 3 Keys for Living in the Joy of the Lord and Laughing Your Troubles Away!
Keeping the Joy of the Lord Flowing in Your Life!
And do you know that even in times of trouble,
joy does not have to leave you?
Yes, it is possible to be peaceful and cheerful…
in the midst of trouble. Why? Because Jesus said so!
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
— John 16:33
3 Keys for Keeping the Joy of the Lord Flowing in Your Life:
1. Do Not Let Trouble Shock You
Just because the storms of life blow through, doesn’t mean you have to lose your joy. It is often said that the key to success in life does not depend on the hand you’ve been dealt, but how you deal with what you’ve been dealt.
That means that how we choose to react to trouble is what will determine our success. Problems and tribulations are a part of life, but they don’t have to steal our joy.
2. Laugh at Trouble
Learn to laugh at your trouble and choose joy over worry and anxiety. We can trust God or worry. Either way we’ll still be confronted with trouble in life. Why go through it in misery if you can instead overcome it with joy?
“Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again – rejoice!” — Philippians 4:4
Christ has already overcome the world and in Him we have power and authority to overcome. Realizing and believing that is a key to not losing any precious joy. Choose to focus on the promise and not the problem.
3. Confess Promises to the Problem
Replace the moaning, groaning, whining, and complaining with rejoicing. Rejoicing about what? Rejoicing about the promises God has given us in His Word. Dig deep into every promise so you can and dwell in that secret place of the Most High.
God is for you so quit fretting about who is against you. On a daily basis, refill yourself with joy by getting into the Word and confronting troubles with promises.
For example, if sickness tries to attack your body, then confront it by confessing: ‘By His stripes I am healed.’ (1 Peter 2:24)
We were created to walk in the joy of the Lord, not to worry about every little thing. His joy can keep us living well. The healing power of joy works like medicine to our bodies.
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”
— Proverbs 17:22
If you feel yourself growing weary, then confess: ‘I am steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord and knowing my work is not in vain.’ (1 Corinthians 15:58)
If you are facing financial troubles then confess the promise: ‘My God shall supply all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 4:19)
Bottom line: The Word of God is filled with promises that are bigger than any type of trouble that comes our way. We can live with joy because Jesus has overcome the world and in Him we are more than conquerors. Resist any negative thoughts of failure or defeat and continually refill yourself with joy.
May your life abundantly flow with the joy of the Lord and growing prosperity!
God bless you always,
Encouragement of Hope! Why All the Sad Faces if this is the Happiest Time of the Year?
Discover Encouragement Affirmations to Live with Hope for Tomorrow!
live with hope for tomorrow is –
much needed during the holiday season.
The music, movies, commercials, etc…
all shout that the holidays are the happiest time of the year.
If this is the case, why are there so many sad,
discouraged, and depressed people walking around?
In the USA alone, the suicide rate back in 2007 was stated at Suicidology.org to be 34,598, or about 95 suicides per day. That is about one fatal outcome every 15 minutes. What a terrible tragedy to have so much self-destruction when life is so precious.
The Discouragement Factor
Why do so many people take their own lives? The primary reason is overwhelming discouragement. Discouragement is a destructive force that changes a person’s mindset and outlook to become dark, negative, and hopeless. They lose their courage and find it replaced with fear.
Holiday seasons come with the expectation that happiness is required. However, the fact is, holidays tend to have added stressors on top of the rest of life’s challenges, including financial trouble, illness, loss of loved ones, and more. And unfortunately, many people find themselves discouraged and depressed during this season.
Victims of discouragement can quickly end up with hindered decision making skills and in no condition to do things effectively. Their whole mentality is placed at a disadvantage as their mind becomes depressed. Discouragement darkens the mind and can cause a person to make fatally wrong decisions.
The Encouragement Treatment
Discouragement stems from a feeling of separateness from God and this causes a consciousness of weakness and a feeling of standing alone. Treat this disease by conquering those mental enemies with positive affirmations. Drive out fear, anxiety, worry, and the “blues” by affirming your connection with God.
“We are all ‘under fire’ all our lives, and the real hero is the one who keeps straight on in spite of discouragements and disappointments, never losing one jot of heart or courage, never giving way to despair, trusting always in the Divine Power that will lead him to his goal.”
— Orison Swett Marden
Begin to eliminate those negative things that stand between you and your Maker and allow free access to the flow of God’s Divine Power by regularly affirming His truths.
‘I am a child of the King of kings and there is something inside of me that is bigger than my circumstances. I am a co-heir with Christ and all that He has.’
‘I am strong, courageous, confident, and hopeful for the future. My mind is serene and I sleep peacefully knowing my destiny is in the hands of Him who controls everything and who does all things well.’
‘I declare my power to conquer difficulty and overcome. I trust in God and forge ahead. I dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty. His truth is my shield and protector.’
The truth is: We can allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by discouragement, OR we can rise above it. Overcome by speaking positive, encouraging, success affirmations. Strengthen your mind by using positive thoughts to drive out negative thoughts.
Choose to encourage yourself and others regularly, so that you keep a heart of courage, thoughts of hope, and trust always in the Divine Power of God in your life.
May you be encouraged, keep your face toward God’s light, and live a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you always,
Abundant Living – Prosperity Destroys Fools! So Why Don’t You Wise Up and Prosper?
How to Use Your Confession to Prosper and Manifest the Abundance of God
Yes, I know, prosperity occasionally falls in the laps of
some individuals; for example, they may get an unexpected
inheritance or win the lottery.
However, we all know that IF these individuals are fools,
the prosperity will destroy them.
Prosperity Destroys Fools
“The prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoever hearkens unto Me shall dwell safely.”
— Proverbs 1:32-33
Some argue against being prosperous, and their reason is that ‘prosperity will destroy you.’ But the Bible says it will destroy a fool. So don’t be a fool.
How do we keep from being fools? Joshua 1:8 tells us that if we follow God’s method and confess the Word of God, then we will make our way prosperous, and deal wisely in all the affairs of life and have good success.
Wise Up and Prosper
Prosperity is a blessing, if it is acquired God’s way. A powerful way of keeping in line with God’s methods and activating His Word is through confessing it.
Now, sometimes people hear this and get crazy ideas about what this means. But all confessing really means is, speaking the Word of God out loud so you can hear yourself saying it. In order for us to succeed we must confess it out loud. This allows us to hear our own voices and that brings faith, because faith comes by hearing.
As we confess and affirm the Word of God, what we are doing is setting goals, and planting seeds in our heart. How can we expect to get something or somewhere if we don’t know what we want or where we are going? We establish God’s goals with His principles when we confess the Word of God. This in turn puts us on track to manifesting the abundance of God in our lives as the planted seeds soon become growing prosperity.
Positive Confessions for Abundant Living
Confessing what the Word of God says about you will change your life. Even the most negative people have gotten results after only putting this into practice for a few short months.
Keep in mind, when you first start speaking some of the things God says about you, you may feel like it’s the biggest lie that ever came out of your mouth. But the Word of God reflects the way He sees us, and confessing it helps us see and think about ourselves the same way God does.
Find a truth in God’s Word that pertains to your situation and make it into a confession. For example:
‘My God supplies all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus and whatever I do prospers, for I am like a tree planted by the rivers of living water.’
(Philippians 4:19, Isaiah 54:17, Psalm 1:3)
It’s hard to imagine the impact this has on a person until they’ve confessed it every day for at least a month. Confessing the truth of the Word is calling things that are not as though they were and calling them into manifestation. Allow the will of God concerning you to manifest in your life.
So go ahead; put this to the test right away. God’s Word is living and powerful and when confessed will change you. The wisdom of God will empower you to handle all the affairs of life wisely so you can manifest and enjoy abundant living.
May you wise up to God’s ways and live a life of growing prosperity!

Affirmation Power – How to Overcome Fear and Strengthen Your Courage with Affirmations
Why Not Put the Power of Affirmations to Work for Your Benefit?
If you are lacking in any quality…
you can strengthen it with regular affirmations.
They will make your brain clearer…
and your thoughts more effective.
“An affirmation is a statement of Truth consciously used so as to become the directing power of Life’s expression.”
— Orison Swett Marden
Fearful Thoughts Versus Courageous Thinking
Would you like to overcome fear in your life? If you are a coward anywhere in your nature, which most people are, you can put the power of affirmations to work for your benefit.
Strengthen your courage by regularly affirming that you are absolutely fearless, that you are courageous, and that nothing can harm you. Consider that fear is simply the sense of danger. But when you have perfect confidence in the great Creator and His purpose for your life, when you trust in Him completely, there will be no cause for fear.
God has a plan for your life and He says it is not to harm you, but to prosper you and give you a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Once you convince yourself that there is a good plan for your life, and that the opposing thoughts must be a delusion, you will gradually lose the sense of fear and gain the courage you desire.
“Nerve us with incessant affirmation. Don’t bark against the bad, but chant the beauties of the good.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Affirmations Create Power
Determine today not to harbor anything in your mind which you do not wish to become real in your life. Every time you feel a sense of fear coming over you, replace it by saying something such as the following affirmation:
‘I am absolutely fearless; I am strong and courageous because the Lord is my God and my helper; I am more than a conqueror and always triumph in Christ.’
Do not entertain a weak or fearful thought. Instead replace them with confident, hopeful, optimistic thoughts. If you form the habit of affirming to yourself bold and courageous thoughts, as soon as a sense of fear arises, you will be surprised to see how quickly you can change the whole course of your thoughts. And when this is changed, the feeling will change also.
You will begin to increase your courage and confidence, and this is half the battle. You will soon find that your environment will begin to change. Hope will increase and you will have a healthier outlook on life. Your thoughts, instead of depressing your mind, will be a perpetual encouragement of courage and confidence that drives out fear.
Now what? Discover the wonderful advantage available to you by starting out every morning with the mindset of affirming the confident and courageous person God created you to be. Let affirmations create a powerful force that make it difficult for any discouraging and fearful thoughts to take over. Overcome fear and strengthen your courage with powerful affirmations.
May your mind be filled with courageous, confident affirmations and your life full of growing prosperity!

it is through meditation on the living Word of God that ultimately manifests the blessings of God.
Take a look at some ways our lives will improve:
Meditation Brings Mental Stability
The mind has creative power and we are told to prepare our minds. (1 Peter 1:13)
God’s Word causes joy and rejoicing in our heart. It changes the way we see our self, our family, and our future. It helps us start seeing our self and our life the way God does.

- God keeps me in perfect peace because my mind is stayed on Him. (Isaiah 26:3)
Meditation Blesses us Physically
Meditation is like medicine. It is life to our spirit and flesh. Everything we need is in the word. Once we act on the meditated Word of God, we tap into the abundance of God. Physical and financial provision has already been provided, but it is up to us to act in order to receive.
Sample biblical affirmations to meditate on for physical needs:
- I prosper and I am in health, just as my soul prospers. (3 John 2)
- The Lord heals all my diseases and keeps me from destruction. (Psalm 103:3-4)
- The Lord sent His Word and healed me. (Psalm 107:20)
- By Jesus stripes I was healed. (1 Peter 2:24)
Meditation Provides Spiritual Growth
Physical and emotional blessings are just the natural created gifts we receive when we meditate and spend time in His presence. Faith, love and spiritual growth in many areas will also soon begin to manifest.
Sample biblical affirmations to meditate on for spiritual growth:
- Christ dwells in my heart through faith and I am rooted and grounded in love and grow in God’s love, which passes knowledge, and I am filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19)
As we tap into the abundance of God and His never ending supply, we will begin to experience growing prosperity in all areas of our lives. And meditation, which affects us both spiritually and physically, is part of God’s plan.
What is your next step? Take what you have just learned and put it to work in your life. Then watch as the power of Christian meditation transforms your life!
God bless you,
