Day 37 | Overcomer
"This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice AND be glad in in it" (Psalm 118:24).
"Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice" (Philippians 4:4).
"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desire of your heart" (Psalm 37:4).
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" (Thessalonians 5:16-18).
These verses are wonderful reminders of life. Meditate on them if you get the chance. They propel us toward positivity.
Remember, we don't want to just be positive in just thought, but also in action. Mahatma Gandhi once said, "Be the change you want to see in the world." The wonderful thing about doing this is that you can set off chain after chain of positive events. Some call it the “butterfly effect” – one small thing you do can have repercussions all around the world. Whatever positive actions you want to see more of, today, I encourage you to take responsibility to produce more of them yourself. When you show the world your willingness to be positive, others follow your lead, and before you know it, you're changing the world one action at a time. There's no better way to effect positive changes in the world.
As we’ve been on this fast and feast journey together, you’ve become negativity demolishers, positivity igniters, and hope bringers everywhere you go. You are leaders in positivity! So, I wanted to share a few leadership teachings to empower you as your positivity becomes a lifestyle that cannot help but influence others:
I declare we are people of action, who lead and choose to “be the change we want to see in the world.” For more inspiration to take action, read this blog post from my book Higher Perspectives about forward movement, called, “Forgetting Those Things Which Are Behind and Reaching Forward.”
