I woke up this morning, singing a Bangles song! Manic Monday (written by Prince, sang by the Bangles)!?! Help I can’t get this out of my mind-lol
It’s just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
‘Cause that’s my funday
An I-don’t-have-to-run day
It’s just another manic Monday
Sunday is definitely my funday… and yesterday was no exception. Church at Destiny Family Center was amazing as it always is. I started a new sermon series, You Are A Heavenly Society! Here’s a Bible text verse from that message (that I never got to read yesterday):
“But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.” (Hebrews 12:22-24 NIV)
I’m writing today’s blog from the Waynesboro Starbucks… and I LOVE the Mighty Mango drink! Ever had one?
Develop An Attitude Of Gratitude!
I’m happy to be alive this morning. Love so many things about my life. Sure, I have my challenges just like everyone else… many, many challenges. But really, my blessings far outnumber the challenges.
For every one thing going wrong, there are ten things going right.
What you focus on and monitor always gets bigger.
What are you focusing on right now?
Focus on the goodness and you will find more goodness!
Yesterday morning, Ryan Huffer gave our church a phenomenal reminder about not taking goodness for granted. He talked about a very bad day he had on vacation a few weeks ago… the story was pretty funny, actually! He really had the worse vacation day of his life.
Ryan told us He’s been thinking about that day, trying to find some REASON behind the sudden, bizarre emotional storm he suffered. Then he said, “I realized that I was focusing on all of those bad things happening to me on that one afternoon and I had forgotten about all of the blessings in my life.” Then, he recited some of his blessings… and found that he has all of the things that really matter in this life!
Are you suffering through a sudden, bizarre series of unfavorable events? Have you lost your mind… lost your peace and happiness… lost your ability to see a single good thing happening in your life right now?
Test the theory! Find ten things going right for every one thing going wrong. Focus on goodness. Focus on your blessings. Look for solutions. Look for success.
Train your mind to look for goodness.
Develop and attitude of gratitude.
And guess what? You will find more and more blessings… as if you are producing them by looking for them. This is how it happens!
I hope this random blog inspires a great Monday for everyone.
