My SED held her Director's meeting today jointly with her other local upper level directors. One of the Execs there read this and it really moved me. It is from the book Scriptures and Meditations for Your Best Life Now by Joel Osteen. (I stopped by the bookstore on my way home and bought myself a copy!) This made me realize that I do not truely belive in my abilities and that I am holding myself back....well, no more! You'll read about me in the CN one of these days Enjoy! RAISE YOUR LEVEL OF EXPECTANCY God is extremely interested in what you see through your “spiritual eyes”. If you have a vision for victory in your life, you can rise to a new level. But as long as your gaze is on the ground instead of on your possibilities, you risk moving in the wrong direction and missing out on the great things God wants to do in and through you. It’s a spiritual as well as a psychological fact: We move toward what we see in our minds. Your life will follow your expectations. What you expect is what you will get. If you dwell on positive thoughts, your life will move in that direction; if you continually think negative thoughts, you will live a negative life. If you expect defeat, failure, or mediocrity, your subconscious mind will make sure that you lose, fail, or sabotage every attempt to push above average. If you raise your level of expectancy, you will enlarge your vision. It’s important that you program your mind for success. You must think positive thoughts of victory, of abundance, of favor, of hope. Each day, you must choose to live with an attitude that expects good things to happen to you. Start your day with faith and set your mind in the right direction, then go out expecting the favor of God. Expect to excel in your career and rise above life’s challenges. Believe God for a great future. You have good things coming! THIS COULD BE THE DAY YOU SEE YOUR MIRACLE.
