Attitude is Everything

10 Oct

From My Heart

Louise Gibson

If you can’t change your circumstances,
Change your Attitude.
A dramatic benefit you will see.
An acceptance of things that we
Cannot Change
Will develop a sense of serenity.

 

God uses life as “on-the-job training”-
He never promises A life free from care.
But He does promise never to leave or
Forsake us,
And never gives us “more than we can bear.”

 

God could spare us from hardship,
But, then how would we learn,
How would we grow?
Problems prove our integrity,
I learned far more from my losses in life,
And reached a higher plateau

 

Food for thought:
“Our character, if genuine, is never altered by circumstance”

    I have often wondered how different our lives would be if we were willing to learn by acceptance rather than by proof.

      Alta, I bet you have learned more by acceptance than you are even aware of.. God leads us in such a subtle way, it may be years later when you reflect back and have an “ah ha” moment..

    GOD TRULY WANTS THE BEST FOR US EVEN IF WE DON’T ALWAYS UNDERSTAND WHY BAD THINGS HAPPEN. AS THE SONG GOES, ‘FARTHER ALONG WE’LL UNDERSTAND WHY.”
