A Shift in Thinking

Let me share a lesson that I am learning and relearning regularly. In fact, I feel like I had to relearn this again today! Some of us need a shift in our thinking.

It is really easy to get caught up, focused on and frustrated with:
  • What I cannot change.
  • What I wish were different.
  • What I do not know.
  • What I cannot do.
  • What I am not hearing.
  • What I cannot figure out.
  • What I do not understand.
We are limited. You are finite. I am under development. We see dimly. Let's just accept that. It was not a part of the plan for us to be divine. If we get added into the divinity mix, there is no longer a trinity.

I think the Lord would want us to be more intentional about focusing our energy and attention on:
  • What we can change.
  • What I do know.
  • What is good.
  • What I can do.
  • What I am hearing what I can figure out.
  • What I do understand.
  • What I can offer.
God has built plenty into you. Use it. Focus on who you are and who you are not. What you have, not what you lack. What you can give, not what you need.
