It’s all about your attitude.

When you’re dealt with a setback, or a disappointment yeah it can make you mad, the challenge is not to stay mad.

I don’t know how he does it…but in his silence…Tim Tebow seems to be such a good example of choosing the right attitude. 

Kind of joking about it a bit today…about how his mom might feel wanting to defend her son.

If someone was hired to fill your job while you still had it and were successful, it would be a bitter pill to swallow. 

But, we know that he loves God, has a strong beliefs that it’s going to be okay. 

This is going to be interesting how this turns out.  It’s like the country gets to watch how God turns ashes into beauty.

Reminds me of what it says in the bible...

“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance.” –Isaiah 61:7

It may be starting...Tebow just got traded to the Jets

10,000 Reasons

Your life is full of God’s goodness.  Matt Redman’s new song, 10,000 Reasons is all about finding those reasons and thanking God for them.

I know that some days it’s hard to get that.  When you feel beat down, abandoned, alone, like a failure, change your perspective by thinking back to all the things God has gotten you through in the past and will get you through again.  

In this video about the story behind the song Matt Redman described his inspiration was from David in Psalm 103,  “He’s just pouring out all these reasons, he’s healed you from diseases, he’s redeemed you from the pit…and you can’t shut him up about it!  Isn’t that what the life of worship is meant to be…we are meant to be so conscious of the reasons to praise God.”

I know how failure can make it hard to find things to praise God for, but it can also make the things you have been successful at more clear.

Personally, I still struggle with the failure of my marriage, and sometimes it clouds my vision of the good things that God has brought into my life. 

But, when I look in my rear view mirror and I see 3 of God’s children that he has entrusted to my care, I can sing again.
