If you could change one thing
about this day
(the one you are about to walk into)
to make it really spectacular,
it should not be your shoes
or your clothes.
Don't get me wrong,
I love nice clothes
and a well put together look,
But if you want a really great day,
you need to change your mind.
What you think,
what you believe
will determine your outlook
on all that happens to you
and around you.
If you believe you are entitled to
when they come, gratitude will allude you
(because you deserved them!)
If bad things come, you'll be bitter
because you will feel ripped off,
when you should have had better!
But if you go (instead) into this day
with a feeling of expectancy
(of the goodness of God)
(and secure in the love of God)
knowing He has your back,
and will work all things out for your good,
anything can happen,
and you will remain secure.
You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
