Focusing on the Good

Posted By at Wednesday, November 22, 2017

'When life hands you a lemon just make lemonade', so the saying goes.

But why settle for making lemonade when there are so many more positive possibilities you could check out?

Just remember, there is no situation so completely hopeless that something positive and constructive cannot be done with it.

When you are faced with a minus, do what you can to make it a plus.

When you practice an attitude of gratitude and thankfulness you will be able to extract un-dreamt outcomes from the most terrible situations.

There are no really hopeless situations, there are just hopeless attitudes. So don’t be one of them because we all have a tendency to adopt the attitudes of those we spend time with! As someone said, "If you hang around with the dogs you end with fleas!"

Paul wrote Romans 1:12 Your faith will help me and my faith will help you.

Paul also said in Phil 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

When you choose to forgive and then focus on what you can control; that is your attitudes and your opportunities, this increases your energy, builds your potential and takes the limits off your faith and your future!

Have a great week and come along this Sunday to Family Faith Centre for a great service.
