THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
FOCUS ON WHAT YOU HAVE, INSTEAD OF WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE
It’s easy to get stuck in the trap of thinking that if only your CIRCUMSTANCES would just change, then life would be BETTER. You might think, “If I got a new JOB, or a new HOUSE or had better FRIENDS, then I would REALLY be happy.” But I’ve learned that often times, God changes US before He changes our CIRCUMSTANCES. We are thinking, “If only my CIRCUMSTANCES would change,” when God may be thinking, “If only your ATTITUDE would change!”
Today, if you’ve been thinking, “IF ONLY,” it’s time to turn your thoughts around. Don’t allow negative thinking to direct your ATTITUDE or affect how you treat others. Instead, begin to thank God for what He has PLANNED for you. BLOOM where you are PLANTED. Tend to what God has placed in your hand. If you will focus on what you HAVE instead of focusing on what you DON’T have, then God can BLESS you and MULTIPLY you and lead you forward into the DESTINY HE has in store for you!
“He who tends a fig tree will eat its fruit…”
(Proverbs 27:18, NIV)
