Save The Day! Get Started NOW! You already know what to do! Why the failure to launch? What you’ve been thinking about and mulling over for months is God speaking. Let’s Go, I’m POSITIVE! Start! Here’s the Word. For he says, “Behold in the day of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you, Now is the time of God’s favor and now is the day of salvation.” (2 Cor. 6:2)

No more TRYING, It’s time for DOING. I hear it all the time, “I’m trying.” Oftentimes people who are TRYING fail because they’re doing whatever they’re doing under their own power. If you change from Trying to Doing it for the Lord, your victory will come about because the Lord will help you DO IT! I’m positive! Here’s the Word: “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God!”
(1 Cor. 10:31)

Just get back up and keep going! My good friend Dr. Sam Chand says, “For every mile of road there’s two miles of ditches.” The question is never, “Will I stumble and fall?” Because you will. The question is, “Will I get back up when I stumble?” Of course You Will! I’m POSITIVE!! Here’s the Word: “For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again!” (Prov. 26:16)

Life and Peace is YOUR decision from here on out. That’s right it’s your decision. If you will let the Holy Spirit lead you, your life will be about Life and Peace from here on out! I’m not kidding, I’m POSITIVE. Here’s the Word: “The mind governed by the flesh is DEATH, but the mind governed by the Spirit is LIFE and PEACE!” (Romans 8:6)

WAIT … There’s MORE! Today refuse to let the STUFF you’re facing rule the day, because if you can just get a higher and better view you’ll see that God has so much MORE for YOU. Just WAIT! I’m positive!! Here’s the WORD: “But they that WAIT upon the Lord, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (Is. 40:31, KJV)

From my doctoral studies …
“To MUSE means to PONDER. AMUSEMENTS are the opposite of PONDERING. Amusements are counterproductive to musings. We must take time to MUSE. Leave the AMUSEMENTS for someone else!” ~Dr. Jim Vigil.

I’m POSITIVE!! Here’s the word: “As Long as he sought the Lord, God gave him success.” (2 Chronicles 26:5b)

Stay on your GREEN. Because the grass is not greener on their side. Shades vary. One day green is brown and brown then becomes green. Manage your own green-brown because there’s nothing different on the other side of the fence but trouble. I’m positive. Here’s the word: “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” (Gen. 2:15)

REST! That’s right, just REST. It’s Memorial Day, so take time to stop and REST. There will be time tomorrow to get back at it, but today REST. Today it is illegal to worry! Things like stress, bills, no money, kids, work … STOP and REST. I’m POSITIVE that I’m right. Here’s the Word: “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will REST in the shadow of the Almighty.” (Ps. 91:1)

Good Morning. YOU are not ALONE! I’m serious, the Holy Spirit is with you this very minute! I’M POSITIVE! I know this because Jesus promised that He’d be with us. It’s in The Word. Here’s Jesus speaking of the Holy Spirit. “But You know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.” (John 14:17b)

All week long, “Thank God For Trouble!” It will work a character trait in your life called PERSEVERANCE. Brilliant people who PERSEVERE win in the end. I’m POSITIVE. Here’s the word. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” (James 1:2-3)
