The blank page needs a pen and thoughts written down!
Many people journal and many people do not journal. It's the thoughts that happen in one day and they are written down as reminders. It might even be thoughts for tomorrow. I have written journals before and looked back to see how far God has brought me. Through it all, I've learned to trust in God and turning page in life, means new beginnings, hope and much more. It is better to count blessings, than focusing on things we can not change.

It becomes a new day and time to write my thoughts
Proverbs 18:10 (NIV)
10 The name of the Lord is a fortified tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe.
Psalm 55:22 (NIV)
22 Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.

Change your thoughts into positive ones
Parts of my life hasn't turn out the way I thought it would. I have prayed and believed with all my heart and yet some prayers doesn't seem to be answered. Yet, I know that God hears the cry of our hearts and wants the best for us. Down the road of life, I see the reason some prayers weren't answered the way I thought. God truly knows the best for each of us in this life. We are to pray, praise and rejoice on a daily bases. Praying through a storm of change, praising in that same story of change and seeing how God works all things for our good. There will be ups and downs, but prayer does work!
Romans 8:28 (NIV)
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
You are waking up to a new day. It's time to take the pen into your hand and write down some things. Maybe some blessings of a just waking up. Maybe the prayer that you need answered or the promises of God to be seen in your life. Maybe a loved one who needs encouragement this day and you can do that. Make some notes and decided to allow God to use your life and do it. Release your will to God's will and watch amazing things happen.
Yesterday, my husband and I got some news we didn't expect. It was a bitter sweet blessings. God was working behind the scenes of our life to bring change. One phone reflected years of prayer and not quite what we expected. No matter what, we could see the blessings and knew that God was handling things for us. God is always right on time!
As I continue to write, I know that God is already at work in your life. I pray daily for the readers of my blog, your family and your friends. i don't need to know your name because God does. I care and hope you can see that in this daily blog. Nothing is too big for God and he changes us through situations of life. Never give up or stop believing in miracles. God created them in the Bible and he will continue to create them in our now.
If you feel alone, stuck in a situation or struggle with moving forward, it's time to turn the page. A new day begins and often times we need to leave negative thoughts alone. God speaks in his word that we can do all things through Christ was strengthens us! Reach out a little further and grab onto hope of a better day.
If you are having the best day ever, continue to count blessings and pray for others. Yesterday, I felt to contact a friend and tell them words on my heart. She wrote back and said the timing was perfect. It is God who puts people on our hearts and it is important to act upon reaching out to them. Your life makes a difference and never forget that.
Thank you for taking the time to read this today and plant hope inside your hearts. Nothing is greater than the love God has given us. It is time to count blessings now!
