So important to be positive......

Psalms 68:3 But may the righteous be glad

and rejoice before God;

may they be happy and joyful.

4 Sing to God, sing praise to his name,

extol him who rides on the clouds [a]—

his name is the LORD—

and rejoice before him.

I know that there are many many things in this world to be negative about, that there are going to be many things that disturb you or that you can't agree with BUT please take a moment to examine your attitude. Just like when our own kids are negative and we feel that they are ungrateful with their blessings so the Lord feels when we spend our days moaning and groaning. I am increasingly concerned about those around me who spend so much of their precious time moaning and groaning with heavy hearts. BE GLAD, BE JOYFUL FOR  THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE!!!!! I know that you don't agree with the government, the newspaper, your neighbor, your spouse, the dog but be GLAD that you are free in the Lord. Be glad that you are full and warm and not without.

Take a moment to look back at your recent tweets or FB statuses. You may notice a trend. If every single one is how dare they, what were they thinking, how could I be wronged this way.... please take it to heart. Pick up your bible and read about God's feelings about these attitudes. We are not owed anything from anyone else. If you are depending on the people in this world to satisfy you and to do things your way, you will be sadly disappointed. Cast your cares on the Lord and rebuke Satan and the negative attitude that he wants you to have. If you are always complaining that is not a testimony to the world about the love of Jesus. BE different, be the light in the darkness.

Ummm I may get on a soapbox every once in a while. I only do it when God lays something on my heart! Peace and love and joy to you.
