One of my favorite publications is the Daily Word – affirmations and reflections to remind us of being God’s chosen child. They have an affirmation, an explanation, and a passage from scripture. It helps me during my low times, AND my good moments, to find my “rosey” outlook. I believe in the power of positive thinking, and the Trinity gracing it to me. If you are struggling in any area of your life, especially your marriage – these thoughts can help you.

1. “I am free in mind, body and spirit…spiritual freedom..has no limitations. I can choose how I fill my heart and mind. I canchoose how I experience God, how I pray, and how I practice the presence of God in my daily life. Embracing freedom of Spirit, I breakthrough any self imposed limitations and open myself to divine possibility…by choosing encouraging words, uplifting thoughts, and positive habits, I give full expression to my spiritual freedom.” For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters – Galatians 5:13

2. “I am the one and only me…I may not think of myself as a creative person but I know that I have unique talents and gifts to share. For instance, art may appear on a canvas, or it may appear in a meal prepared with love. Some hands sculpt clay or play a musical instrument, and some gently hold the hand of a child. Wisdom can be found in books, but it can also be found in quiet conversation across the kitchen table…as I more fully express who I am, I bless others, and blessings flow back to me. I am creative, productive, and open to divine inspiration. I give my gifts to the world.” Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from God, so that we may understand the gifts bestowed on us by God. – 1 Corinthians 2:12

3. “I am attuned to the goodness of God…the gentle pattern of raindrops…enjoying a conversation with a friend, joining in laughter with loved ones – what blessings they are! Such simple pleasures are but a few of the abundant gifts from God that enrich my life’s experience…I acknowledge my blessings one by one. As I do, I open my awareness to the goodness of God all around me. Truly I am blessed beyond measure.” Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4

4. “I am grateful…even if I am going through a challenging experience, I am grateful, for I know that good will come out of it. Will I learn of inner strength that I didn’t know I had? Will I gain a renewed appreciation for my life and the people in it? I am grateful for my present circumstances, for I know they offer opportunities for growth. I thank God for the life I have been given and the life I am creating by seeing all the good in all that comes before me.” Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving. – Psalm 95:2

5. “Wherever I am, God is, and all is well…if at any time today the order and harmony of some aspects of my life seem uncertain, I clear my mind of all concern. There is no need to worry. Just as season follows season, wave after wave, and sunrise follows sunset, all is well. I honor myself for the perfection that I am as one of God’s creations. I know that I am in the right place at the right time. All that I do today and every day is blessed with God’s goodness. With gratitude, I affirm: Wherever I am, God is, and all is well.” My heart is steadfast O God, my heart is steadfast! – Psalm 108:1

I pray wherever this finds you, you know grace is pouring down on you…and even if the world fails you, or you limit yourself with worries and insecurities (So ME!!!) God will not. You are never alone!
