Each day there are so many reasons why to feel good about each one of ourselves. Each day has different opportunities to feel great and to use our gifts to glorify our Creator. I start thinking of all the things that our Creator does for us every day and how that will encourage me. Hope you enjoy this quick list is of encouragement to you too.

1. I opened my eyes.
Each morning when I opened my eyes it is an opportunity to rejoice. Our Creator has given me a new opportunity to see the light of a new day. That is a privilege as so many people do not open their eyes in the morning. Our Creator has given each one of us another day because we are important, he has a plan for our life. The new day he just gave us has a purpose and we must use it to fulfill his purpose in our life.

When you open your eyes remember that he allow you to open your eyes so you can see the wonderful things he has for you in his will. Psalms 119:18 (Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law).

2. You can get up from bed.
After we open our eyes many of us, have the privilege to get up from our beds. If you are one of those privilege human beings, thank him because you can get up. By getting up from bed each day we are getting ready to fulfill the purpose he has for each of our lives. Each one of us is placed in a strategic place in this wonderful planet. The reason that we are placed in our family or job is so we can shine for our Creator.

So get up from bed and shine. Isaiah 60:1 (Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.)

3. Eat some food for breakfast.
Like we already established that our Creator thinks very highly of each one of us and he has a plan and purpose for each one of us, we need to eat in the morning. What ever you have open your mouth and bless our Creator for the wonderful blessing that he brings to your table. A good breakfast is good but the most important detail is prepare your heart and feed it correctly for the rest of your day.

Thank your Creator for what he will do for you today in your life.
Genesis 9:3 ESV (Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.)
Psalm 34:8 (The Message) (Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see – how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him.)

4. Education
Each day has different opportunities. One of those opportunities is to learn or to educate us in different areas. From small kids to experience grandparents, education is critical in our life. I am not talking about special schools or prestigious universities. I am talking about our attitude towards learning. When we have an attitude towards learning something new every day it will help you grow.

A good attitude will help us grow in different areas in our life.
Proverbs 4:13 ESV (Keep hold of instruction; do not let go; guard her, for she is your life.)

5. Have someone looking over you.
Each one of us may do great things in life, but sometimes we make mistakes. Alexander Pope asserted “To err is of humans, to forgive divine”. We all know that our Creator can forgive us. Sometimes we need someone who will care for us and help us thru those difficult times.

Accept those people who are care for us
Proverbs 13:24 ESV (Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.)
