We all have bad days but when our bad days outnumber our good ones I think it is safe to say we need an attitude adjustment. Lately I have noticed it takes some concentrated, extra care to keep a Christ-like countenance. We are not built to take on all the cares of our world on our own strength. We need to allow God to help us in every situation; and when we fail in our niceness test He is faithful and always ready to help and to forgive us!
An attitude when bad, casts a shadow over life,
The flowers do not smell as sweet nor does the sun shine as bright.
When the attitude becomes cloudy, the heart is not as free,
And life loses its spontaneity.
The sweet words of fellowship do not easily flow.
It is hard to hear words of love, if waters of the heart are cold.
Take care to keep your attitude right;
Cast off the darkness and let in the light.
When life presses hard upon you;
Do not allow it to give you a bad attitude.
Instead, place disagreeable things at the foot of the cross of Christ.
For He is near to help you to keep your attitude right
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth
his spirit than he that taketh a city
I John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse
us from all unrighteousness.
