God wants us to have joy in the midst of our ordinary, everyday life—even on the worst days of our life.
It took me a lot of years to figure this out, but I now know that the very best way to start my day is by giving thanks to God for what He’s done for me, and asking Him how I can be a blessing to other people.
There were times in my life when I dreaded facing each day. All I could think about was my circumstances—wondering how Dave and I were going to pay the bills or get everything done that we needed to do. Sometimes I wanted to pull the covers over my head and just stay in bed.
I was so wrapped up in worry that I was missing the point: God had created a new day, and He wanted me to enjoy it.
Achieving an A+ Attitude
Every single day is filled with all kinds of situations that could upset you—things like losing your car keys or getting caught in a traffic jam. But you can choose to be at peace and in control.
God doesn’t necessarily create difficult situations for us, but He will use them to develop our character.
When you and I take our minds off ourselves and our circumstances, and put our focus on God and loving others, we are embracing an attitude that will bring honor to Him.
No matter what happens during our lifetime, we can be sure that God is working everything out for our good.
