Attitude Is Everything

Today was yet another monumental day in the 40-day cleansing that God is doing in my life.  All day He confronted me on the subject of my attitude.  When I am faced with situations that I don’t like or when I “am required” to do things that I don’t like, I tend to get a bummed attitude.  God is showing me that this does not please Him.

In the books that I am reading, I am learning that people will follow and take up a leader’s attitude before they follow his or her actions.  It has a multiplication effect:  one leader spreads his or her attitude to all followers.  From there it grows.

The thing about attitude:  it’s not dependent on circumstances.  It is dependent on our decisions.  I can be having a horrible day – circumstances not in my favor, but my attitude does not need to reflect that.  How I treat others should not change.  The expression on my face should be one that reflects the joy of the Lord, not my bummed emotions.  A good leader (and we are all leaders, whether we know it or not) is consistent.

Thank you, Lord, for the lesson.  Transform me from the inside out.  Make me strong in Your victory and joy.  I love You.
