A Blessed Future

Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.—Proverbs 4:23 (NCV)

Are you a positive thinker? Do you see the silver linings in the storms of life? Do you use encouraging words when you talk over a problem with yourself? If not, make a commitment to change your thinking. Fill your mind with good, uplifting thoughts and you’ll be amazed at the blessings that follow.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, I pray Psalm 19:14, “May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts
