Gratitude or Attitude?

May 13, 2021

How do you react when someone or something irritates you. Do you get angry and want to lash out? Do you have a bad attitude?

Inside you allow that irritation to fester. That is not good for your health and it is certainly not pleasing to God.

Instead, think of the good in that person or circumstance. Be grateful that person is in your life. Maybe you are irritated with your spouse or children, a coworker in the workplace. Each of them has many good qualities. Be thankful for the good things.

Make a list of all the things in that person or situation that you can be thankful for and then pray and ask the Lord to bless them. Your attitude can make a great difference.

Let us decide right now to have a good attitude and be grateful in every situation.

Ephesians 5:20 – Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Are you rejoicing?

Superstitious? The Bible tells us to have faith in God..not fear of myths and superstition.

If you are burdened by false superstition ask Jesus to take it away and trust fully in Him.

Be Thankful

November is the month of Thanksgiving. This holiday is overlooked between Halloween and Christmas, but as Christians we should celebrate this holiday with thanksgiving, not just on the Day, all year long.

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Attitude Check

August 10, 2020

This story may or may not be true, but it is something to think about. As Christians we must be careful how we treat others. Sometimes our attitude, can make a huge difference in another’s life. Do we forgive others who make a mistake? Are we friendly, kind and helpful to those we come in contact with? Look around and see if you can be the difference in someone’s life today.

Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Churches Are Open

August 2, 2020

Most churches are open. There may be restrictions or procedures that may make us feel uncomfortable, however, it is important to go to church if you are able.

It is so easy to stay home, especially after a long period of time when we did not get out. We need spiritual food and fellowship of other Christians.

So today, put away your fear and frustration with the rules and if you have no health problems, get ready and go to church. You will be blessed.

If you really cannot go physically, most churches are having virtual services. Make sure to watch and let the Lord speak to you.

Your Words

July 15, 2020

In Disney’s movie Bambi, Thumper gives some good advice about how we speak to one another.

The Bible tells us many times to be careful of our words. The old expression, “sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me” is not true.

Our words can wound, discourage and cause great harm or can encourage, lift up and make someone’s day a blessing. Let us ask God to help us speak kind and thoughtful words.

Psalms 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Love One Another

June 2, 2020

Do you have someone in your life that you find hard to love? Maybe you don’t agree on an important issue like politics, or this person my have an irritating habit. For whatever reason you find that person hard to love.

This is when you need to rely on the Holy Spirit to show God’s love through you. You can choose to love. Ask God to give you love for that person and then pray for him or her. It is almost impossible not to care for someone you pray for regularly.

Love considers others first.
Love looks for the best.
Love shows respect.
Love seeks unity.
Love isn’t selfish.
Love offers the best.
Love displays patience.

1 Peter 1:22
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

Words

April 15, 2020

In this difficult time, many of us are all living at home with family members 24/7. This is not our normal way of life. The adults would be going off to work, children going to school, church, and social activities would take up most of our time.

However, now we find ourselves together and if we are not careful with our words things can get out of hand. Restlessness and inactivity can cause tempers to flare. Fear, anxiety can cause us to say things we do not mean.

One little word can make a difference. Example: I love you or I hate you. One little word. Let us show love one to another even in this uncertain time.
