I’m so excited to start journaling from the writing prompts in this book that I found. So I decided I would start tonight. I was going to start with the first writing prompt in the book, but i kept coming back to the intro page, every time i started to write. So i backed up a bit and i am starting off with the short intro.
The book starts off with this introduction page.
What I focus on determines where I will go. If I focus on all the negative or the “what ifs,” then I will stay stuck in my fears. But if I choose to focus on what God is doing in my life and the positive possibilities, then I will begin to get unstuck. I will continue until I am completely unstuck.
I know I am blessed. God has blessed me greatly in this life. Some who know my past may wonder how I can say that, but my past doesn’t own me. God does. I am His and I no longer dwell in my past. He defines who I am. What He says matters.
He tells me that He has a plan for me. Jeremiah 29:11
He created me in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13
I am God’s child. Galatians 4:7
Jesus died for me. John 3:16
He is preparing a place for me in heaven. John 14:2
And these are only a few. I choose to focus on what God says about me.
Thank you, Lord for all the blessings you have brought into my life. You have blessed me so abundantly. There are always blessings around every corner. Thank you for your presence in my life. You give my life meaning. Amen.
