The power of prayer and positive thinking

Monday, September 24, 2012

Did you know it is hard to be negative if you surround yourself with positive things. That is pretty hard in the world we live in today. I was in a slump last week I didn't feel well and all I did was sleep. My children and my husband got on my nerves and I was pretty much useless to everyone around me. I was negative about myself and life in general. On Friday I started praying for God to help me understand why I was in such a place. I attended a concert of one of my favorite Christian artists Friday night and was shown that we take so much in our life for granted. Did I know this? Sure I did but where I have been for the last week I didn't want to see how truly blessed I am. I continued to pray on Saturday and started to feel better. I decided after much prayer and study that I am starting this week on a totally different foot. i am determined to find the good in everything around me. I am working on making my thoughts and attitude positive. I know I will need to rely on prayer to keep this going but I am determined to do this. I know this will help my motivation and promote better weight loss and a healthier mindset all together.

    Oh, golly, golly, me too, why do I get negative? It is so utterly counter-productive. I know I am doing it, and I cannot stop it. I have so much to be grateful for, and I am, yet little things annoy me.

    Amen and Amen! Thanks so much I needed that reminder today! Whenever we take the focus off of God and place it on us, we lose of joy, hope and peace. It really isn't about us. It is about Him and His purposes which are so much higher than ours. I am talking to me as I share with you.

Happy Monday!
