"Praise the Lord......"
Psalm 150: 1-6
I was watching Joyce Meyer Friday morning and when she looked at her audience and firmly said,
Your problem is NOT your problem....your attitude and perception are your problem", I felt the earth shake and tremble. Okay, not really, but her words resonated in me! Problems will come, but how we respond to those problems will make a big difference in our daily lives.
Sometimes I just feel overwhelmed by the way the storms of Lyme Disease beat upon our lives. I can easily be swept away by the mighty winds of illness and loss which sets me up for an attitude of baditude...instead of gratitude. You know...the "poor me....poor me...." song that brings about a change of posture~ my nose in my bellybutton~ which blocks out all the Sonlight!
God never leaves me in that place for long. He reminds me that He is with me, He loves me, and that He wants me to have an attitude of praise and gratitude. Lately I have been hearinig from a number of sources the need for me to praise God in all circumstances...more praise...more gratitude...never too much praise! Get rid of that baditude, girl!
Do any of you find yourselves with a baditude attitude? If so, ramp up the praise and thanksgiving, not just this week, but year round. And remember Joyce Meyer's words~ Your problem is NOT your problem~your attitude is your problem!
