Eight Rules for a Blessed Day

TODAY I will not strike back . . .

If someone is rude, if someone is impatient, if someone is unkind, I will not respond in a like manner.

 

TODAY I will ask God to bless my ‘enemy’ . . .

If I come across someone who treats me harshly or unfairly, I will quietly ask God to bless that individual.  I understand ‘enemy’ could be a family member, neighbor, co-worker or stranger.

 

TODAY I will be careful about what I say . . .

I will carefully choose and guard my words being certain that I do not spread gossip.

 

TODAY I will do something kind for someone (But I will do it in secret) . . .

I will reach out anonymously and bless the life of another.

 

TODAY I will treat others the way I wish to be treated . . .

I will practice the golden rule, “Do unto others as I would have them do unto me,” with EVERYONE I encounter.

 

TODAY I will raise the spirits of some who are discouraged . . .

My smile, my words, my expression of support, can make the difference to someone who is wrestling with life.

 

TODAY I will nurture my body . . .

I will eat less.  I will eat only healthy foods. I will thank God for my body.

 

TODAY I will grow spiritually . . .

I will spend a little more time on prayer today.  I will begin reading something spiritual or inspirational.  I will find a quiet place (at some point during this day) and listen to God’s voice.
