Change Of Attitude

“For the happy heart, life is a continual feast.”
Pr 15:15 NLT


The story’s told of a wise old man. Every day he and his granddaughter would sit outside his gas station in rocking chairs, waiting to greet tourists as they passed through their small town. One day a tall man with the appearance of a tourist started looking around like he was checking out the area for a place to live. “So what kind of town is this anyway?” he asked. The old man replied, “Well, what kind of town are you from?” The man replied, “One where the people are critical of each other. It’s a real negative place to live.” The old man said, “You know, that’s just how this town is too.” Later, a family passing through also stopped for gas. The father stepped out and asked the old man, “Is this town a good place to live?” “Well, what about the town you’re from?” he replied. The man said, “Where I’m from everyone’s close, and always willing to lend a helping hand. I really hate to leave it.” The old man smiled and said, “You know what, that’s a lot like this town.” After the family drove off, the old man’s granddaughter looked up and asked, “Grandpa, how come you told the first man this was a terrible place to live, and when the second family asked, you told them it was a wonderful place to live?” The old man looked into her big blue eyes and said, “Sweetheart, no matter where you go, you take your attitude with you—and that’s what makes it terrible or wonderful.” Yes, life is what you make it! Which is why the Bible says, “For the happy heart, life is a continual feast.”

At The Cross

“You forgave me! All my guilt is gone.”
Ps 32:5 NLT


David said, “I confessed all my sins to you…And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.” Julie Ann Barnhill writes: “If you’re tired of pretending you have it all together, it’s time to act. For too long Christian women in particular have believed they’re the only ones dealing with shameful issues, agonizing regrets, and skeletons in their closet. Once we open up to God, ourselves, and others, we experience exhilarating freedom and peace. A woman wrote to me: ‘I had an abortion when I was eighteen. Nobody knows. For years I marked the date on my calendar and grieved for the child nobody knew about, and the young woman who bore the guilt alone. No more! Now I know I’m not alone, and for the first time in my life I truly believe God is bigger than my secret—and He’s willing to forgive.’ Secrets only hold power when they’re hidden. Once they’re revealed in the light of God’s love they lose their control. However, there are some things to consider before opening up to someone: (1) If that person repeats things others have shared in confidence, guess who’s up next for discussion? (2) Beware of someone who’s apt to offer unsolicited advice, then take offense when it’s ignored. (3) Stay away from somebody who tries to ‘fix’ you, and tells you not to worry about your secrets. Instead, look for someone who: (a) has good sense and knows when to ‘back off’ and/or move forward when you’re upset; (b) is up-front about their own struggles; (c) is quick to listen and slow to speak; (d) undergirds their words and counsel with scriptural truths.”

Undeniable Grace

“ Even when you feel like you’ve used up all your passes
or when you think you’ve overstayed your welcome
when it seems like you’ve taken advantage
of this love freely bestowed
His grace for you will never run out
like the...

“The Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me.”
Ac 20:23 NIV


About 75 percent of believers now live in Third World countries, often in anti-Christian environments. Xu Yonghai is one of them. He worked to see the legalization of house churches in China. The government responded by locking him up for two years in an eight-by-eight-foot cell in a Beijing prison. There was no bathroom, only a pipe in a corner from which water flowed onto the concrete. “My cell was the last stop for prisoners sentenced to die,” he said. “At times there were as many as three other prisoners in the tiny damp room, awaiting their date with the executioner.” Yonghai survived through prayer, meditation, and writing. Using a bar of soap to write on the walls of his cell, he outlined the major points of a book about God. When he was finished, he committed the thoughts to memory, and upon his release he turned his prison notes into a fifty-thousand-word book entitled God the Creator. More often than not, your difficulties and hardships confirm you’re in the will of God rather than out of it! Paul writes: “I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace” (vv. 23-24 NIV). Note the word grace. No matter how difficult the will of God may be, you can accomplish it by drawing each day on His limitless supply of grace.
