Devotional: HELP NEEDED: ATTITUDE ADJUSTER

DEVOTIONAL

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

When my kids were young and went through that fabulous “w h a t e v e r” stage I love so dearly, they had to say the above Scripture with it . It was two-fold, to work on bad attitudes and taught the Word.

Now whenever I start regressing to my teenage years (not in a good way), and want to say “whatever” myself, I find that I start saying the verse (typically adjusting the attitude in the meanwhile). I can only hope that it impacted my kids and their memorization of it, but hey, at least it did for me!

Today, think about what these things the Lord is asking us to consider in this Scripture. How does your train of thought line up with the Word? Needing an attitude adjustment? (Rhetorical).

Saying, “I can’t help it, I just dropped in on Pintierst for a few minutes, but it turned into hours,” doesn’t cut it, neither does watching marathon tv or calling to share a “prayer request” that turns into a 45 minute complaining session about someone else! Want to know what the Lord comes back with in those instances with me, typically?.. Yeah, well, I’ll tell you anyway,

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

AND

Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Romans 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

Afterward, I believe to have some insight as to how Job felt Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer Thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth (Job 40:4)

PRAYER

Most High and Precious Lord

Thank You for a sound mind

May we use it wisely

We know that You do not ask us what

We are not given the capability to do

Lord, we ask that You will bring to mind when we are wasting time on thoughts

That are not honoring to You

We are prone to wander, Father

We start by a though and before we realize it

Something has consumed us

Please deliver us from whatever or whomever

Distracts our attention from You

Let Your likeness, please

Prevail in our lives so much

Dwell in us to the point anyone knowing us could say,

“I know Who YOUR Daddy is, you act just like Him”

Indeed, for others to recognize You in us, we must walk, talk, live and love as You do

We must study and obey, follow and focus

All with the intention of knowing You more

With minds, hearts and heads filled by the world

It is impossible to make room for righteousness

You, O Lord

Do not share the spotlight

You are the Everlasting Lord

In the Name of Jesus Christ

AMEN

SONGS

Everlasting God

Agnus Dei

Give Me Jesus

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

I hope and pray this devotional has been uplifting to you. The Lord is so merciful. At times when you think, what is ONE “good” thing? Days you struggle just to come up with ANYTHING “good”, JESUS. Just think about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There is NOTHING better to have our minds fixed on than Him!

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
