I am the master of myself! No other creatures can deteriorate; match the skills, talents and abilities of my being. For the Loving God gave a mind to think for the innovation of myself, He gave the eyes, the hands and the feet to transform all my plans into action.
Yes, I am the master of myself! I am the master of my fate, I am the master of my destiny, And I can excel in this land!
Yes, I can excel in this land that full of hardships, pain and trials. For the Loving God gave me the power. Power to laugh at my short coming and error, and power to cry, to release all the pain and sorrow of life.
Yes, I am the master of myself! For the Loving God gave additional power, Power to rise up once again after I fall, and power to continue to move on, to conquer the impossible!
Now, I learned lesson from the past that self-discipline, preparation, determination, persistence, love of God and love of my fellowmen is a passport for success. Trials and hardships make a man strong, Failure and mistakes make a man humble but only the Loving God keeps a man going.
Therefore, beginning today no longer I think what others think about me. No longer I doubt and weep. No longer have I compared myself unto others, instead I compare only my past self so I can be able to love and learn to appreciate my being.
Yes, I am the master of myself! To keep me moving and improving, Everyday, I will motivate myself to read the Bible and other inspirational and motivational books, for these are the nutrients and vitamins for my mind and soul.
Yes, I am the master of myself! To keep my spirit alive, I’ll endure to think positively, I’ll persist to imitate the lives of the great men of excellence. And I’ll continue to motivate, nurture my intellect to have faith and believe in myself.
Finally, I’ll motivate myself to pray and give thanks daily to my beloved Creator. For He is the source of my strength and energy. For He is my only treasure and faithful friend. Without Him, I am meaningless in all meaningless under the sun!
Therefore, beginning today, I’ll talk to Him with these words: Dear Lord, thank you for the gift of life. Thank you for loving and being patient to me. Thank you for giving me the chance and opportunity to plant the seeds of my uniqueness and productivity in this land. Please continue to guide and use me, so I can help and give comfort to the lonely, doubting broken soul and bring them nearer unto you. Finally, forgive me to all my short comings that I committed against thee. In Christ name, I’ll pray…Amen.
Wish you many blessings to come and God bless!
