Happy Monday. I truly hope it is happy!
I just completed a little painting of a barn scene. I love old barns (I love anything old, me included).
I can tell you it looks like a summer day with a few clouds just for atmosphere. Trees still have leaves of summer and it looks peaceful.
Listen to this quote:
“Attitude is the mind’s paintbrush; it can color any situation.”
Don’t you love that? Or do you not believe it?
Perhaps this isn’t the best Monday you’ve had, but could changing your attitude make it brighter?
No, the circumstances won’t be eliminated, but the dread might be.
Another quote by “anonymous” but could have been from Paul in prison:
“Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.”
It seems to me that many days are ruined by just a strange foreboding, a worry, or fear.
I just learned this acrostic on fear:
Doesn’t that define it well? Most often the things we dread or fear never happen at all.
Some ways to change our attitude today and any day it’s needed:
Focus on today. Refuse to look back. God has put this day in front of you, complete with challenges and provision to meet them.
Focus on the positive. Whatever you might be facing, you have His help.
Focus on a promise. As your days, so shall your strength be.
At the end of the day, look back and realize you “painted” the day with a bright hue, a masterpiece!
