ATTITUDE: The Same Joke One day in the village, there was a gathering of lots of people around a wise man. Most of them complained to the wise man about a problem, which, the wise man had heard again many times in the past.
The wise man was silent for a moment. Then he told the villagers a joke and the whole audience roared in laughter. After a couple of minutes, he started telling them another joke. But it was the same joke, again.
When he finished, only a few of the villagers smiled. Then he told the same joke for the third time, and no one laughed anymore.
The wise man smiled and told the villagers, “You cannot laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem? Why are you always angry about the same problem?”
When are We going to be part of The solution To The Problem
Or Better yet Be Part of THE Solution instead.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope
We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.” —Thomas Moore
“The glue that holds all relationships together–including the relationship between the leader and the led–is trust, and trust is based on integrity.” —Brian Tracy
“Trust is like blood pressure. It’s silent, vital to good health, and if abused it can be deadly.” —Frank Sonnenberg
Spiritual maturity isnt measured by how high you jump in praise but how straight you walk in obedience.
You’ll never accomplish anything if you don’t believe you can do it. Trust in God and ask for His help.
Instead of dwelling on your difficulties, focus more on the fact that God is for you and His power is at work in you.
God never leads us where He cannot keep us. His grace is always sufficient for us in any and every circumstance of life.
Sometimes you may feel God is hard on you and doesn’t love you… Truth is He Loves you to much to leave you the way you are.
We are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus, not from any works that we can boast of.
Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vison, a goal.
If God changes your heart, be willing to change your plans.
Don’t give up on what God has called you to do. The end result is worth the pain.
