Thursday's Dose - 31st March 2011

The Power of Attitude 


"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might."
- Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NKJV). 


I have read how William Wilberforce (who became an evangelical Christian) was a diminutive man and never enjoyed good health. For twenty years he was under doctor's orders and had to take drugs to keep body and soul together. Yet he stopped the British slave trade. Boswell once went to hear him speak and said afterward: "I saw what seemed a mere shrimp mounted upon the platform, but as I listened, he grew and grew till the shrimp became a whale."


The interesting thing is that so many successes in history have been achieved by people who have either been limited by some kind of handicap or have suffered a major setback or failure of one kind or another.


It's one's attitude in life that makes the difference. No matter what happens to us, with a positive attitude we can rise above our difficulties and achieve
notable things with our life.


By having a positive attitude I don't mean the denial of reality, but rather to
be a positive realist. For instance, if I have been hit by a truck, all the
positive thinking in the world won't take away the pain. To be a positive
realist means that I admit that I have been hit and hurt real bad—but with God's help, and that of the medical profession and the support of loving friends, I will recover to the fullest possible extent and turn this experience into another blessing.


As another has said, "Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst ... a spark that creates extraordinary results."


Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, whatever it is that I can do, regardless of my circumstances' please help me to see what it is and do it with all my might. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."


Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
