The most important thing I do every morning is check my attitude. I need to look at the glass that is my life and realize how near to full it really is. It’s important for me to know that if this is the last day of my life I will awaken in heaven with my Lord. I need to remember I am surrounded by beautiful women from my bride through my daughter, grand daughter and three year old Kaydence. I need to remember I have a wonderful work situation that allows me time to do things like this blog. I need to recall I am in the richest nation on earth. I need to know I will have all the food I need today and money for every real need in my life. I recall that I am suffering from no malady that will hamper my mission or end my days on earth on this day.
I need to begin the day realizing that I have more blessings than my arms can hold so that I live with an attitude that if I don’t give some of it away, the blessings will be wasted. Our choice is to consider life half full or half empty and all flows from that: whether we smile or frown, whether we look to give or to get, whether we thank or whine, whether we bless or suck the feeling of blessing from around us.
It’s sad when we stand on our porch and moan that our’s is not the largest house on the block, forgetting we have a house at all. It is pathetic when we are gloom over the attitude of our children, when there are those whose children are no more or never were. It is ludicrous when we bemoan the state of our nation when we can still tell others about our Lord freely.
Our attitude should compel us to action and motivate us to good works.
So what’s your problem this morning.
