I woke up early today, excited over all I get to
do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have responsibilities to fulfill today.
I am important.

My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is
rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is
getting watered for free.
Today I can feel sad that I don't have more
money or I can be glad that my finances
encourage me to plan my purchases wisely
and guide me away from waste.
Today I can grumble about my health
or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents
didn't give me when I was growing up or I can
feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.
Today I can cry because roses have thorns
or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
Today I can mourn my lack of friends
or I can excitedly embark upon a quest
to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work
or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.
I can complain because I have to go
to school or eagerly open my mind and fill
it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
Today I can murmur dejectedly because I
have to do housework or I can feel honored
because the Lord has provided
shelter for my mind, body and soul.
Today stretches ahead of me,
waiting to be shaped.
And here I am, the sculptor
who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me.
I get to choose what kind of day I will have!


The important question is, "What is your attitude about Jesus Christ. Do you understand and believe that Jesus took your place? He died on the cross, taking the penalty for our sins upon Himself, so that we could receive forgiveness of our sins and the gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus!

If you have understood that Jesus died in your place and have already received His gift of eternal life, Praise the Lord!!

If not, why not change your attitude and receive Him right now and ask Him to change your life?

We encourage you to refer to the LIFEQUEST "Food for Thought" topics of Salvation and Gospel which will further explain what He has done for you, how much God loves you and show you how to receive Jesus as your Savior and Lord.

God bless you and have a great day!
