A Flat Tire

Someone once said, “A bad attitude is like a flat tire - you can’t go anywhere unless you change it.” Oh how true that is. Happiness is a choice. You can look at life’s challenges as a learning opportunity and stay positive or you can slump into the dumps feeling sorry for yourself and lamenting about how life just isn’t fair. But herein lies the danger: as long as you continue to swim in an ocean of self-pity, you will be immobilized and guess what? Your future will be no different than your past. Instead of concentrating on all that you “don’t have,” concentrate on what you “do have.” You never have to fear the storm no matter how fierce or turbulent because God is with you always. God sends the storm to show that He is the only shelter. The Bible says in Psalm 94:18, “When I said, ‘My foot is slipping,’ your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.” Thank God for the tough times for it is in your darkest hours that you lean on Him the most. Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain, just pray to God for a better umbrella.

Text:

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, (Psalms 103:2, ESV)


Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. Selah (Psalms 68:19, ESV)


2 Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds,

3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.

4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. (James 1:2, ESV)


give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18, ESV)
