Why is your burden too much to bear?

Awesome!!  We complain about the cross we bear but don’t  realize

it is preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we can’t.

Whatever your cross, whatever your  pain,
there will always be sunshine, after the rain.

Perhaps you may stumble,  perhaps even fall;
But God’s always ready, to answer your call.

He knows every  heartache, sees every tear,
a word from His lips, can calm every fear.

Your sorrows  may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish dawn’s early light.

The Savior is waiting, somewhere  above,
to give you His grace, and send you  His love.

God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

And you question   God -why me?
Always look at the bigger picture.
A day without the Lord – Is a day wasted.
God is going to shift things around for you today
and let things work in your favor.

Why I’m unbelievably Fantastic every day

My Positive Attitude

This guy nailed it for me.

Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home a relationship.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

TLB – So I play off My Positive Attitude

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you, we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Thanks to my good friend Charles R. Swindoll, American Writer & Clergyman, (b.1934) for sharing this with me.

In order to maintain my positive attitude every day, I wake up and say this to myself every morning, “I am unbelievably fantastic, hovering near ecstasy. Right now it’s not chemically induced.”

I have My Positive Attitude statement do you have yours?

Come up with your own positive statement for the mornings and say it to yourself every day.

To Believe

To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning.
It is to trust that miracles happen, and dreams really do come true.
To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,
To know the wonder of a stardust sky and the wisdom of the man in the moon.
To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child’s eyes and the beauty of an aging hand, for it is through their teachings we learn to love.
To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us.
When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.
To believe is to know we are not alone,
That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.
To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.
If only we believe.
