Believe In Something Better

Life has a way of draining the hope out of you.  People, situations, and circumstances challenge you again and again.  Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you.  It is this daily struggle that will define you every day.

If your perception of your world is negative or positive, then that is all you will be able to see.  Then your attitude and your actions will follow suit.

But Pastor, you don't know what this person did.  You don't understand what I am going through.  Maybe not.  But I can guarantee that your attitude towards these things will define the kind of person that you are.

Ask yourself this question.  Are you going to define who you are or are your circumstances going to define you.

Paul said, while sitting in a prison cell in Rome, Philippians 1:27 Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,

Paul had every reason to look at his life through a negative set of glasses.  He's in prison and most likely will die for his faith.  But he chooses to define his life differently.  

That's what you and I have to do when confronted with people who do not like us and situations that don't go our way.  Rise above it, allow your best attitude to shine, choose to believe in something better. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I choose to believe in You!  AMEN
