One’s attitude is probably the most important thing that we as human beings have to deal with. Just walking into a shop or any venue you can pick up on the people’s attitudes. As you start talking to people you will find that they either have a good and happy attitude or a really heartbroken, self-pity attitude.
Most people struggle with the negative side of their attitudes and it takes hard work to being one’s attitude under control. I for one struggle with fault-find, grumbling, complaining, nagging and stuff like that. I have to check myself for not going down that road. Once the door is open I just bulldozer forward and become a real wrecking ball.
Thinking about my problem I believe the only way forward for me is to realise who I am in Jesus Christ. I should start making a point of not finding fault with everything that irritates me. I should pay attention to what I say and do. I feel that I should start mediating more on the Word of God and take my focus off what is taking place around me.
I have so much baggage that needs to be cut off and thrown away, that I wander when I will do this and start stretching myself forward and grabbing onto the Lord Jesus.
As I face tomorrow I want to remind you and me that ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’
Father God humbly I pray for a new lease on life, give me the discipline to work hard and get to where You want me to be. Lord as I face my problems with my own attitude I pray for a guard over my mouth, sealing my ears to gossip and breaking the bad attitudes that I carry around within me. Help me Lord to lighten up and to start enjoying life and making the best of every situation I find myself in. Lord thank You for hearing my prayers and thank Your for being there for me.
