That they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us,
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
So much tribulation, so little time! The world and it's inhabitants are chalked full of tribulation!I can remember times not so long ago when I allowed myself to be "affected" by it. Someone would come around who was pissed off, angry, depressed, anxious, dramatic, just plain out of control of themselves. That rub's off on us if we allow it to.
But did you know that a "good" or "happy" attitude rub's off on us as well! And THAT has a MUCH better affect on any and everyone within our "attitude" range!
Just this morning one of our daughters had a crabby attitude and it rubbed of on our youngest son, he walked away. I walked up to him, smiled and said to him, "Im going to stand here smiling at you until you smile" and smiled at him all goofy until he broke into laughter!
I explained to him how quickly her poor attitude took to get to him and how quickly it also took for my "good" attitude to get to him to, explained how he did the right thing by walking away.
you don't have to allow the "bad attitudes" to control you, we are all perfectly capable of controlling ourselves and "choosing" to have a good attitude, be a good example, do the right thing etc.
The tribulation in our lives isn't nuttin compared to what our savior went through. The tribulation in our lives has ONLY the effect on us that WE allow it to!
When we are down, we need that "meditation" time with our savior, a "refueling" so to speak! Take it folks, don't allow satan to get a hold on you, tell him to get behind you and pray, let your spirit be renewed by your savior, let him heal your mind, body and soul. To refuel you, refresh you, renew you and take it all away making it possible for you to go back out there and be the "good" example that we all need to be for others!
Today- walk through your day with your chin up, a smile on your face and let your "little light shine" for everyone to see!
Have a peaceful day in Christ Jesus :0)
