Attitude is Everything

From Psalm 94:

When I thought, “My foot is slipping,”
your steadfast love, O LORD, held me up.
When the cares of my heart are many,
your consolations cheer my soul.

Attitude is everything.

Every hour - a challenge to choose - is the glass half-empty or half-full?

My sinful instincts go with the half-empty stuff - that was the "original sin" - I'm missing something, something is lacking, and it's up to me to get it.

But Christ would have it otherwise for us. To live with thanksgiving and gratitude, to count blessings and trust our Father in Heaven whose eye is even upon the sparrow.

The glass is half-full ... and perhaps more, for the Psalmist writes elsewhere: "My cup overflows."

Attitude is everything.
