The Affirmation That's Opened a Thousand Doors

Hands crossed in prayerThis is too good not to share. From Norman Vincent Peale's classic book, The Power of Positive Thinking:

"I believe I am always divinely guided;
I believe I always take the right turn in the road;
I believe God always makes a way where there is no way."

That's it! Whenever I'm facing a particular challenge, I make a point of saying this one three times—sometimes out loud, sometimes to myself. And sometimes for days on end, for as long as it takes.

The ways in which this affirmation has worked for me are too sacred to share. But my guess as to why it works so powerfully is that it places the emphasis not on my power, but on God's. Amen?

Feel free to print this post and tape it where you'll see it, daily!
