Attitudes




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.

Amen

Acts 2:38-40 (ICB)38 Peter said to them, “Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.”40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
