This week try to take each day as an opportunity to be a positive influence. When someone says, "How are you, or how is your day going?" don't begin by telling them all the bad and disappointing things in your life but try and say, "It's not so bad, or maybe just say okay." Then ask how they are doing. If they have things that are not going well try and say an encouraging word and that you will be praying for things to get better. We often dwell in the negative ( I know I do) and need to realize that each day if we complain less and FOCUS on the positive it will improve many aspects of our lives. Be a smile in someones day today and that smile will probably be returned to you. Have a wonderful week and know God is smiling down on you. This may sound a bit corny but as a commercial use to say ... "Try it, you'll like it!"
Scripture: Hebrews 12:1-3
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of out faith who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, endured such opposition from sinful men, so that YOU WILL NOT GROW WEARY AND LOSE HEART!
Love and prayers, Norma
