Good morning.

Has something unexpected ever happened to you that changed the rest of your day? Someone cut in front of you on the road, something didn't work out for you, or you had an argument with someone.

Often a single event affects us for the rest of the day. That's because we let the situation control our emotions, and that affects our behavior.

Our response hinges on what we confess with our mouths and keep in our hearts.

If what we confess throughout the day is gratitude to God, we align our mind and emotions with Him. Gratitude brings joy to our lives. Giving thanks to God, expressing our gratitude daily, serves as a vaccine for those things that don't work out so well. It is a good tool for speaking blessings because by thanking God you give Him glory.

"Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens."

(Psalm 68:19)

"Because of the Lord ’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." (Lamentations 3:22‭-‬23)

Have a really good day.
