So You Had a Bad Day?

LOL… Does that YouTube video above describe you?

Once again, it’s MONDAY… and today millions of people from coast to coast in America (including you), have jumped out of bed, with a huge smile on their face, excited and leaping with joy… with the sun shining bright through their windows… lovely bluebirds chirping beautiful songs in the trees outside… waking up to the fresh, tantalizing aroma of mountain-grown coffee!

Why?

Because we get to start yet another WONDERFUL workweek at our job, business, or school!

Okay, so the stats are probably only about 1 in a million people who enjoy Monday mornings (and you are probably not that 1 in a million)

And that scenario above is probably more in tune to a Walt Disney movie… or an old 1980’s Folgers commercial.

The rest of us roll out of bed, with crust in our eyes… stank breath… cursing and complaining… kicking the dog… the alarm clock blaring in our ears… rushing to work because we overslept and have to be at work in 13 minutes.

Life can be so HORRIBLE… our weekends (Friday evenings, Saturdays, Sundays) seem to RUSH by in 1 day… and our weekdays (Monday through Friday) seem to CREEP by at a snail’s pace of 10 days.

Again, I say, life can be so HORRIBLE… or does it really have to be?

God declares in his word, “As a man thinks (believes) in his heart (mind), so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7). Don’t worry ladies, God isn’t leaving you out… when He says “man”, He’s talking about “mankind”, which includes you… so go ahead and let out a big sigh of relief. *WHEW!*

Whether we have a good day, bad day, wonderful day, or horrible day… depends entirely on YOU and nobody else!

It doesn’t depend on how your co-workers treat you at the job… it doesn’t depend on whether you have enough money in the account so that your car payment doesn’t bounce, AGAIN… it doesn’t even matter whether Obama is elected tomorrow, or if McCain is elected tomorrow.

Whatever you believe in your mind or your heart about YOURSELF… that is what will frame your entire day or week that is yet in front of you, for the POSITIVE… or for the NEGATIVE. Your mindset and emotions RIGHT NOW are the fabric from which your future will be sewn from TODAY and TOMORROW.

If you believe that everyone is against you… they WILL be against you. If you believe you will never achieve anything in life… you will NEVER achieve anything. If you believe that today is going to be another painful day… it is GOING to be a painful day. If you believe in boogie men living under your bed… guess what? Well, I’ll leave that one alone…

But honestly, I think when we get down to the point and the nitty gritty of things… 999,999 out of 1 million WANT to have a great day, and want to love life, and want to have joy… but their thoughts don’t reflect this…

So go ahead and try this today… if you want to change your life today at mind-shattering speeds… and start seeing the glass as half-full (and not half-empty), try this prescription that Dr. Daniel is going to prescribe to you today for AT LEAST 30 days… and take it every morning when you wake up. I promise, it’ll taste better than Robittisum (I guess everything tastes better than that stuff!)

Your Prescription: Start calling yourself what you want your day [and life] to look like.

Yes, you read that right… I know your momma gave you a good name at birth, but God is going to give you another name today… so that you can walk in some abundance, today!

* My mother named me Joan, but today… I AM Joy!
* My mother named me Blake, but today… I AM Blessed!
* My mother named me Winnie, but today… I AM Wealthy!
* My mother named me Henry, but today… I AM Happy!
* My mother named me Simone, but today… I AM Strong!
* My mother named me Victor, but today… I AM Victorious!
* My mother named me Constance, but today… I AM a Conqueror!

You see where I’m going with this… I could keep on going on and on telling you who your heavenly Father wants you to be! You think I’m crazy by saying this, but it WORKS if you’ll work it!

God did it when Abraham was sent by faith to sacrifice his only beloved son Isaac, on a mountain in Genesis 22. God provided a ram in the bush for Abraham to kill in place of Isaac… and God said His name at that point was Jehovah Jirah (I AM a Provider). God’s many names reflect who He is and what He will do for his children, and include Jehovah Rophe (I AM a Healer), Jehovah Shalom (I AM Peace), Jehovah Tsidkenu (I AM Your RIghteousness).

If God can do this… then we can too, as we were ALL made in His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26).

So today, have an AWESOME day. Find out what your TRUE name is, and call yourself AND your day by your TRUE name today and for the next 30 days… and until tomorrow, walk in God’s Abundance today!
