I will rejoice in the success of others. I will not covet my neighbor's donkey. I will create a stable of my own. I will paint beyond the canvass of my current situation. I will borrow brushes from my neighbor when I need to and return two-fold the favor they loaned toward my creativity. I will own my past, step into my present and run toward my destiny. I will never believe I am alone. I know the hand that holds my own. I will not doubt the creation of my excellence. I will humbly step into my beauty. I will build beyond my faults. I will never doubt His plan for my life.
I will make good on bad promises.I will forgive those who trespass against me. I will seek understanding where there is none, love where it is lacking and draw on compassion when I have forgotten the grace that has been poured into me from the Almighty.
I will never forget that I belong to a master's plan, a manuscript designed before I drew my first of many breaths. I will look around and anticipate only good poured into my life. I will be the first to forgive, the first to give and the first careful not to relive my failures.
I will ask forgiveness when I fall short of my excellence and best behavior. I will be short in temperament, short in memory when it comes to counting the wrath of others directed toward me. I will begin my prayers with thank you and end them the same. I will forevermore remember from whence I came.
This is my declaration.
