In my last post, I talked about the biblical meaning of the number “8”. Three days into the month of August, I am continuing to see things that confirm that this is truly indeed a new beginning for me.
I am already so grateful for so many things already, but I often take them for granted. So In this NEW MONTH, I will have a NEW GRATITUDE. I am grateful for the doors I see opening in my life. I am grateful for embracing the changes that come with it. I am grateful that I am no longer emotionally attached to things, people and realize that some things have to go in order for me to move forward. I am grateful that my husband is a GREAT father to his children, a thing to be celebrated as our men of color have gotten a bad rap of being a deadbeat Dad” because they do fit into our “Princess fairy tale” of what the family unit should be.
I am changing the way I think. I have come to realize that I have been my own worst enemy because of how I thought of things. Maybe it stems from childhood. The Bible says “A Man is as he Thinks”. So I am now thinking positive thoughts towards my life and everything in it. And if negative thoughts try to creep in…I will just simply declare “Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge and bringing into captivity THOUGHT to the obedience of Christ”. I will no longer concern myself with what people say about me, how they feel about me. I am focused.
My spiritual and physical well-being. My children. My family. My community. My business(es). My finances.
