Positive Point of View
Up To Know Good on Wednesday
September 20, 2006
My friends Ray and Char were scheduled to spend most of their vacation at Disneyworld. One morning of the trip, however, Ray woke up with chest pain. Due to family history and his own health, he decided to tell his wife. They went to the local clinic and were rushed by ambulance to the emergency room. That was the beginning of two days of tests and two nights at the hospital. On the third day, the doctors finally found the root of the problem and were quickly able to fix it. At that point, my friends were allowed to leave. Needless to say, the hospital was not where they had planned on vacationing!
Do Good - How do you react when your plans get changed? Watch your reactions today when things go differently then you expect. Then, if needed, make some adjustments in your attitude and responses.
Ray said he had decided to enjoy being in the hospital. It wasnt what he and Char had planned, but they made it a joyful experience. Aside from some of the discomforts of blood draws and emergency room beds, he said that there was nothing to complain about. In fact, he was grateful for the medical help he received and the opportunities they had to pray with the hospital chaplain.
About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Acts 16:25. Read about Paul and Silas' positive response in an unfair situation.
God, help me to see the blessings in my situation today and to enjoy my life right where I am.
Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.
I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
