In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. – Genesis 1: 1 – 3 (NIV)
If you take a second to look around in your own space; you will see that everything including your appearance, relationships with people, material things, and environment are all a product of what you have created. Yes, you are ultimately responsible for the current state of your life!
Just think about it…. If you walk into a room in your home and you don’t like what you see; you have the power to rearrange things, update some artwork, and/or clean up the space. Often times, something as simple as cleaning up your space can result in clarity of thought, a refreshed spirit and the strength to forge ahead with whatever you need to handle in your life. Likewise, if you would take the time to take inventory of what must go and what must stay in your life, you will find that you will be much more fulfilled and equipped to assist others as well.
When was the last time you took time to steal away from the drama of the world to connect with your Father in heaven? Connecting with God when stress is looming around you is often times just what you need to regain and maintain your sanity. When things get to this point where you feel that you are overwhelmed, something has to change. However, the question is: Are you willing to do the work? Change starts with you and is as easy as making a proclamation, working through the process and sticking with the plan.
In the bible, God constantly spoke things into existence. So, if we are His children, why can’t we use the same power to speak things into and out of our lives, as we do the much needed work on ourselves?
Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What are you doing to make your world and your environment a better place? No matter what is going on in the world, you have the power to SHAPE YOUR WORLD and impact others around you in a grand way. So, the thought of the day is: “If you don’t like the space or situation that you are in, change it”.
