DAILY OPPORTUNITIES

Everyday, our lives are presented with opportunities that we can grow from if we are open to it. Sometimes I get stuck in the mundane routine of life and fail to see these opportunities that I can learn lessons from.
Being on the lookout for these opportunities makes the day more interesting and purposeful. If we are open to them, it can help us change the way we view something, and then we can even take the big step to change whatever we want to, in the hopes of being a better version of us!

Today the lesson I was reminded of was that sometimes people can be so negative and set in their thinking. Seeing that in people is maybe a good thing, if it helps us realize that we don’t want to be like that in our life. So often I hear people say they can’t change or be different. I don’t think that is true. Being aware of something you want to change, along with God’s power in your life, can lead to change. I think it is a sad thing if someone thinks they can not change their attitude about something.

We have the choice to change the way we view something, and I am thankful that I can see that. I do not want to be like that negative spirit.  It only brings you down and is also unhealthy.
So, what are some ways I try to remind myself to be more positive?

1-Being open to change and new opportunities.

2-Reminding myself that we have a choice to live our lives like we want to.

3-Listening to Christian music that encourages me.

4-Thinking on the positive and the many blessings in my life.

5-Reaching out to positive people.

6-Praying for others.
God provided the opportunity for me to realize that I can decide if I want to be more negative or more positive. I, with His help, have the power to change my outlook on life!

Is there some area of your life that God might be asking you to change? Do you believe with God’s help you can change?
Continue to look for those opportunities in your life where God might be showing you that you can change!
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is  pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on these things. –Philippians 4:8

  1. This is a really timely post. I spent the greater part of last week thinking along these lines. It is not good enough to just accept things as they are, we have the power to change and make things better, not only for ourselves, but for others as well. Thank you for being used by God to write and publish this. Those are really great tips you shared there.
