I was covered by great people today. People that kept me focused and on my game. This is key."
Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals." 1 Cor 15:33

I am so blessed for those people that spoke greatness into me today. "Jill" set my feet on in the right direction as she sat with me. She had the table set beautifully with homemade muffins, fresh fruit and coffee on the table. All of that filled me belly but also on the table sat the bible and the devotional "Jesus Calling".
"Jill" took the time and read the days devotional with me and together we read the scripture that went with it. It was perfect, It was all about the days plans! 

Ephesians 2:10
"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works. Which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them"

Hebrews 12:3
"For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds"

We are to linger in his presence for a while. Rein in out impulses to plunge into each days activities. Beginning each day alone with God is essential preparation for success. Our time in Gods presence prepares us for our day ahead. Only God knows what will happen to us each day. He has arranged the events of each day that we encounter. If we are not adequately equipped for the journey we will grow weary and lose heart. We can relax in God as he prepares us for action.

Your surroundings are your greatest influence. Be careful who you let enter into your circle. In order to achieve greatness you have to bond with greatness. You have to link with positive, encouraging and loving people. Be careful for friendships that are hurtful, draining, negative or toxic they are like a vacuum, they will suck the joy right out of you!
