Thoughts are powerful things. What you think about today creates your reality tomorrow. The more positive your thoughts, the better your life will be. I hope I don’t need to tell you the opposite is true, too.

May 31 is What You Think Upon Grows Day … a day to spend in positive thoughts and gratitude for the abundance ever-present in our lives.

Positive thinking … and taking action with divine inspiration to bring those thoughts into manifestation … has been around a very long time. In researching this observance for today’s post, I found an interesting passage from the Bible. The source only gave me Philippians 4:8, so I had to dig out my old Bible and look it up. (I hadn’t cracked that book open in about a decade!) What I found pleasantly surprised me:

“Dismiss all anxiety from your minds. Present your needs to God in every form of prayer and in petitions full of gratitude. Then God’s own peace, which is beyond all understanding, will stand guard over your hearts and minds, in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7

The advice is sound. Since what you think about expands, holding onto anxiety just brings on more anxiety inducing scenarios. Being a naturally anxious person, I can attest to that. Letting go of the anxiety and trusting that the Universe will provide takes practice. But I’ve accomplished it in the past, so I know I can do it again.

My interpretation of “every form of prayer” is that we should always keep what we want in our lives in mind, whatever we happen to be doing. My mother once told me that housework can be a prayer. I’ve always felt that activities that move you more toward health and beauty, such as dancing, gardening and the like, are forms of prayer. So, I think this passage is suggesting that we always keep our best thought forward, in offering to the Universe to bring it all about.

And gratitude is so important. Be grateful for the things you want, because you already have them. Gratitude can be a powerful force in bringing what you want in life to fruition.

And the final line is reasserting that you don’t and won’t know how all that you desire will come to pass … that’s not your job. Your job is to hold what you want in mind as if you already have it … God, the Universe, whatever you wish to call it … has the job of making it so.

For the past couple of months, I’ve been really working on my prosperity mindset, seeking to heal the abundance wounds created by a negative marriage. I’ve come a long way … and won an iPad and $1,000 too! I owe it all to my friend and prosperity mentor, Marilyn Jenett. She has a wonderful introductory ebook that I highly recommend to get you started on your own prosperity journey. It changed my life in so many ways. Yes, you’ll have to sign up to be on her list, but unlike so many others, 95% of what she will email you is more prosperity lessons. So it is totally worth it.
