I have recently been reminded of how our mindset affects our actions.....
You will eventually become what you think. And you can't think one thing and become something else. If you allow yourself to think negative worried, fearful thoughts, then you will become a negative, worried, fearful person. You cannot think defeat and expect victory. You can't think poverty, and expect wealth. You can't think the worst, and expect the best. - excerpt from Joel Osteen's "Guarding Your Thoughts"

If you believe that you're gonna have a bad day, then guess what? Bad day happens. But it is because you choose to focus on all of the things that have gone wrong instead of the things that have turned out in your favor.
I have struggled with not letting myself fall victim to "stinking thinking" (to the contrary of one of my friends, she thinks that I am always upbeat, lol. #sucka) But we all have our moments and our days but you can't stay there.
"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Proverbs 23:7
"Every action and feeling is preceded by a thought."
Now think about that. You have the power to decide if you are going to be happy, sad, mad, joyful, etc. It doesn't just happen. YOU are the decider!
I have decided that I want to live in the spririt of gratefulness, even when things aren't particularly going my way. I believe that God wants to do great things for us and we in turn have to expect great things for ourselves.
You will never pursue something that you don't think that you deserve.
Now marinate on that...
