September 24 Pearl

September 24

We are driving down the road in an orange mustang with the top down, heading to Fort Meyers airport. We have our church service streaming live from Greenwood Indiana.

I’m grateful for technology so that we can hear our sermon from home while we drive in Florida. The sermon today is about our attitude.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a persons strength. Proverbs 17:22

I have experienced both of these and I can attest that a broken spirit does zap your strength. Laughter is good medicine for the soul. I’ve always loved to share jokes and make people laugh. It brings me joy.

The sermon challenged us to look at our problems as opportunities to grow instead of wishing they would go away. Embrace the problem, knowing the Lord has something great he wants to do in me!

Our life doesn’t belong to ourselves, its not up to us. As we change our thoughts our attitude will change, as well.

We don’t need to throw a fit like a two year old because things are not going our way. Its part of life. Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Him that is our desire and our goal.

My Pearl is that I have had and will have MANY opportunities to grow and learn. He’s not finished with me yet!
