I think we all would like to say we are optimists but even the true optimist has pessimistic moments.
If you are a true pessimist then like Chicken Little the sky is always falling. The glass is always half empty... I have certainly known a few people like that, haven't you?
What about the optimist? Are they the ones who always have sunny skies? The glass is always half full... I've know very few of these.
Most of us fall somewhere in the middle. But we tend to lean more toward one side of the spectrum or the other. Have you ever noticed that you will start to think and act more one way or the other simply by who you are around? I have!
So, what's a person to do? We need to draw close to the ONE who never changes; the ONE who is the Author and Finisher of our faith; the ONE who creates, heals and restores!
Jesus came to give us life and not only life, but life to the full! Abundant life! My how I have to be reminded of that!
Do you want to see opportunity in difficulties rather than difficulties in opportunities? Then change your focus! Focus on the ONE who gives LIFE- Life to the Full!
