You’re late to a meeting….Traffic is backed up for miles…You start to rant and rave, become upset with the situation. Let me ask you one question, Can you change the current situation by your actions? Unless you can fly over the cars or pull off and go another way, you can’t. Stop right there. Therefore, say out loud five things you are thankful for. Today I’m alive. Today I have a family who loves me. Today I can change my future by being joyful and thankful in situations that I can’t control…… Begin your day asking God to guide your steps. Whenever you feel tense, irritated and you want to yell at the world, ask yourself a better question: What can I do in a positive way to change this situation? If you can, do it….If not accept things as they are…… and let God fill you with His Joy…… easy to write about, much more difficult to do….
For those of us who like to think we control situations, we need to stop…. We neither controled the day we were born or die….. We are only here for a minute period of time….Make life easier on yourself and those around by being joyful for who you are, not what you have…
I have held many things in my hands and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess…… Martin Luther
He who trusts in the lord will prosper. Proverbs 28:25
As the Lord to bless your plans, and you will be successful in carring them out. Proverbs 16:3
